Chef notes

Customize these quick and easy roll-ups with whatever kind of ground meat you prefer or by changing up the veggies. Warning: Your kids will keep asking for them.

Technique tip: If you leave the egg out of the ricotta mixture, the roll-ups can be frozen for up to 2 months. With the egg, they can be frozen for about 3-4 days.
