Serving salad in a ﬂat salad bowl versus a deep one, or garnishing ﬁsh with microgreens and roasted lemons, or using a squeeze bottle to drizzle sauce over chicken or greens are a few such examples. The following lasagna rolls are another such instance. Interestingly enough, cooking lasagna in individual portions also intensiﬁed the ﬂavor of each roll, as the edges of the noodles and the cheese achieved perfect crispy perfection. Of course, you can prepare them in a traditional lasagna format, but forming them into rolls is an extra step that delivers in both taste and presentation. I A C AP RESE ROLLS I love the simplicity of this dish. The taste is so clean, fresh and gourmet, and a break from some heavier dairy meals. 8 lasagna noodles 2 balls fresh mozzarella 16 fresh basil leaves 16 slices fresh tomatoes Good-quality olive oil Salt and pepper to taste 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 2. Thinly slice fresh mozzarella for 16 slices. Place one slice mozzarella on noodle. Top with basil and tomato. 3. Roll lasagna noodle and place in baking tray. Drizzle noodles with oil and salt and pepper. 4. Top lasagna noodles with remaining mozzarella and bake for twenty minutes or until mozzarella is melted and bubbly.

A dairy menu infused with thick cream-based soups, cheesy lasagna, baked macaroni and cheese with a buttery crumb topping, fresh mozzarella Caprese and lots of sweet cheesecake! But this year, things will be a bit diďŹ€erent in my house. 56 | JoyofKosher.com | SHAVUOS 2014 PistachioFlaxseed Crusted Salmon Caramelized Onion Spaghetti Squash Casserole Honey Roasted Sweet Potato Stuffed Apples SHAVUOS 2014 | JoyofKosher.com | 57 CREPE BAR WINES DESSERT CREPES | JoyofKosher.com | SHAVUOS 2014 Many associate Shavuos with the classic blintz — savory mashed potatoes or sweet cheese, topped with sour cream. Why not celebrate with a variety of styles and ﬂavors by setting up a crepe bar? There's just something about make-your-own bars that's so fun and exciting! Setting up a savory bar for lunch, or a sweet one for dessert allows your guests to assemble crepes that suit their personal tastes and palate. So instead of asking, "Potato or cheese?" you can sit back and enjoy while your guests do the same.
