Low Calories Vegetarian Lasagna Rolls In Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Lasagna meal is typically a high calorie option. Each lasagna noodles packs almost 100 calories; equivalent to an average bread slice. Lasagna is scrumptious but cooked in its typical way makes it hard to measure portion. And to be honest, as it is so delish, its hard to control portion. So instead of being in an awkward situation rather cook individual portions as happy, healthy yummy lasagna rolls. To cut down almost all the cheese, smother in flavor intense sauce and easily cut several calories.
