"This is a riff on the first meal I made by myself in the kitchen for my mom. I was around eleven or twelve. I made lasagna roll-ups with gorgonzola, ricotta and bechamel sauce. I didn't know much about wine pairings, so I served it with a mimosa! OMG. Don't do that." —Rach 

She likes to serve the dish with an arugula salad with shaved onion and fennel like this one.
