An interesting combination of flavours.

“Salsa Shrimp Rollups” are another creation of mine. Shrimp, tomato sauce, salsa, and cottage cheese are mixed into the filling, then wrapped in lasagna noodles, and sprinkled with deliciously salty feta cheese.

To serve as a main dish, give 2 to 4 rollups to each person, and as a side, one or two rollups. These will compliment garlic bread, soups, and a variety of chicken or fish dishes.

I used a ‘hot’ variety of salsa to ensure that the salsa flavour was in the forefront. With mild salsas, it will be merely an accent.

Time to Make: 45-50 minutes

Serves: 2, as written


  • 6 lasagna noodles
  • 200 g (7 oz) shrimp
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup hot salsa
  • 50 g (2 oz) feta cheese
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • sprinkle of garlic powder

What to Do:

  1. Boil shrimp in a pot on the stove.
  2. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions, drain.
  3. When the shrimp are cooked, cut them into smaller pieces.
  4. Combine shrimp, cottage cheese, tomato sauce, and salsa in a small bowl. Add around 1/2 tsp of dried parsley.
  5. Lay out the noodles. Spread the filling down the entire length of the noodle, and roll it. Be careful not too roll it too tightly, or the filling will come out.
  6. Arrange the rolls in a small baking dish on a thin layer of tomato sauce. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on top as well. Sprinkle with feta and garlic powder.
  7. Bake in a 400 F (200 C) oven for about 25 minutes. Serve hot.


No shrimp? Use scallops, or if you dislike seafood, try ground meat. Ricotta cheese easily stands in for cottage cheese, as does parmesan for the feta. Feel free to use your canned or homemade pasta sauce of choice, rather than tomato sauce.
