  • Cooked lasagna noodles
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 10 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1/2 kilo ground chicken, turkey or beef
  • 1/2 kilo diced carrots
  • 2 bunches saluyot or jute leaves, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • Red pasta sauce


Sauté garlic, onion, and meat in oil. Cook for 10 minutes, uncovered. Add veggies and cook for 5 more minutes. Add cheddar and flour, mix well and set aside. Cut lasagna crosswise into 2 then lay flat. Place about 2 tablespoons of cooked filling and roll. Arrange in a casserole dish and top with sauce and mozzarella. Bake covered for 30 minutes at 375 degrees F and then uncovered for 10. Serves 6-8.
