Asparagus/Prosciutto/Mascarpone Lasagna Roll-Ups- Ideas

Saw this recipe for Individual lasagna roll-ups, & think it has possibilities for a dinner party dish -- but, wanted to make a few changes. Here are my ideas, & would appreciate feedback & input.

Williams-Sonoma | Recipe

I would like to use cooked lasagna noodles, one per serving. Next, would like to spread a ricotta/mascarpone/cheese mixture (about 2 tbls) onto each noodles, then place blanched asparagus spears (horizontally) across the noodle & roll up.

Rather than wrap the prosciutto around the outside of the roll-up (noodle) & bake, thinking of wrapping the prosciutto around the asparagus inside the roll-up, & baking with a white sauce (bechamel) - as I think baking w/o a sauce the noodle will be dry/rubbery. Or, I could ladle the sauce over the baked roll-ups. Any thoughts? TIA

Well first of all DROOL!! OK, back to the questions. I agree with putting the prosciutto on the inside around the asparagus and second, what about a bearnaise or hollandaise? I think a butter sauce rather than a bechamel would work well with the asparagus.

Thanks, Alix. Appreciate your input & understanding where i was going with the recipe. Somehow, a dry noodle, left me cold. Since I wont be adding the sauteed onion mixture, a sauce I have in mind is - Chive Cream sauce w Parmesan (from this chicken manicotti recipe).

What time will you be here? I'll be the one holding a tray of lasagna at LAX. Will you save me a slice of Upside-Down Apple Cake (with Vanilla Ice Cream)?

Looks good. I think the proscuitto is supposed to add a crispy texture to the dish. I guess I would make it......try to make it as the recipe is. Then modify it. Either way, thanks for posting it.

I'll bring it with me. (I'll get the ice cream there though, it doesn't travel well.)
