Over the last few years, recipes using packaged crescent roll dough have sprouted up all across the internet. The versatile, buttery dough can be used for many recipes, but it adds a particularly fun twist to a classic in this Crescent Roll Lasagna recipe. Lasagna noodles can be mushy and tasteless, but the crescent dough wraps around ground beef, Italian sausage, and other traditional lasagna layers for a flavorful, delicious take on the original. Serve the crescent lasagna dish with a green salad for a hearty, wholesome family supper.

This is less of a lasagna and more of a calzone using packaged crescent rolls for the dough. It's not a criticism since it's a great recipe, it's just not quite what I consider a true lasagna. Depending on what I have on hand, I'll use either cottage cheese or ricotta. The suggestion of adding some chopped spinach to the cheese mixture is a great one and one I've done on occasion. I also usually add some chopped green pepper to the onion and beef.

Coming from an Italian heritage, we love the flavors of flavors of lasagna in our family. On a busy weeknight, this is an excellent way to achieve that great taste with very minimal effort. I use ricotta cheese mixed with the egg, parmesan, and frozen, thawed chopped spinach to get in more veggies. Just make sure you drain and squeeze the spinach first, or the mixture will be too wet. I like to put it in a clean kitchen towel and actually wring the liquid out of the spinach to do this.

I love using crescent rolls to make different dishes for dinner. The combination of sausage and crescent rolls sounds delicious, but I would probably skip the cottage cheese and use something else.
