LASAGNA!

I've always loved lasagna but never liked the ordeal of making it. I hated the meticulous layering of the pan and the need to get things perfect so it stacked and cut right.

If you're like me and can't be bothered with the perfection of it all check out my recipe below for lasagna roll ups.

You'll thank me when its time to pack your left over lunch, when you need a mini serving for the kiddo's and even when you want to impress folks for dinner (its something about a roll up that just looks fancy)

Everyone wants to post the perfect Instagram picture right?

Before and After

OF COURSE!

Now when your a blogger like me, posting the perfect Instagram picture is even more important. It can literally be the difference between getting noticed by a brand and securing work or going the entire month without a check coming in...and no one wants that.
