Easy Vegetable and Kale Lasagna Roll-ups

Veggie Lasagna Roll-upsHey Recipe Critic readers! It’s Chelsea back again from Chelsea’s Messy Apron to bring you a meal to balance out that salted caramel sauce I just shared a few days ago 🙂

And this is just the meal to do that! It is super packed with healthy ingredients such as kale, veggies, and a vegetable marinara sauce. It’s a vegetarian meal, but trust me, you won’t miss the meat. With all the delicious vegetables and sauce PLUS the ricotta cheese, this is a meal to get your family on-board with meatless Mondays! The prep is quite simple and they can be ready in about 45 minutes (including the cooking time).

If you aren’t completely sold on kale, spinach is a great substitute. Enjoy 🙂
