This recipe can easily be halved. Read the entire recipe before preparing.
8 Lasagna Noodles
2 jars (15 oz.) of Alfredo Sauce, divided (to cover roll-ups and reserve ½ cup for topping with sautéed prawns)
2 lbs. freshwater prawns peeled, divided (½ lb. chopped raw prawns in roll-ups, 1 ½ lb. cooked prawns in topping sauce)
For the filling:
15 ounces ricotta cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
½ teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
½ lb. chopped raw prawns
For the topping:
1 ½ lb. prawns
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Paul Prudhomme’s Blackened Redfish Magic seasoning (or Old Bay)
Cook the noodles al dente according to package directions. Drain and place in cool water. Gently pat dry when making roll-ups.
To make the filling, combine the ricotta, parmesan, garlic powder, egg, and parsley in a medium-sized bowl, and stir to mix well. Add the raw, chopped prawns and the mozzarella, and stir to mix. Set aside.
Coat a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish with nonstick spray. To assemble the prawn roll-ups, arrange the noodles on a flat surface and spread 1/8 of the filling mixture along the length of each noodle. Roll each noodle up (loosely) jelly-roll style and place in the prepared dish, seam side down. Pour the Alfredo sauce over the roll-ups. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated throughout.
For the topping, season the prawns with the Redfish Magic. Sauté’ the prawns in a small amount of butter until done. Do not overcook. Remove from heat. Before serving, warm ½ cup Alfredo sauce and melt ½ cup mozzarella. Add sautéed prawns to sauce and divide to top each roll-up.
You can change up the types of cheese for a different flavor.
