How To Make Roselinni | Rose Shaped Pasta Dish

Impressing your guests with cookery is always fun! But bridging the divide between deliciousness and prettiness can be challenging. Chef Darryl’s Roselinni is the perfect solution. As beautiful as a rose, and as rich in flavour as home-made, cheesy lasagne.


  • 1 pkg fresh pasta sheets or 4 6x 10 homemade sheets of pasta 1/8” thick
  • 400g peppered ham
  • Fresh parmesan finely shredded
  • Italian herbs (rosemary, basil, oregano, thyme)
  • 300g thin sliced mozzarella
  • Garlic puree
  • 2-pints of home-made tomato sauce
  • 1 pint heavy cream


  1. Lay out pasta sheets length wise going away from you.
  2. Brush sheets with garlic puree and lightly sprinkle with herbs.
  3. Lay ham over pasta sheets covering width and end to end.
  4. Lay cheese on top covering width and end to end.
  5. Sprinkle with parmesan.
  6. Tightly roll the pasta getting out as much air as you can.  Slice roll into approx 2 inch lengths, you should get 3 per roll.

  8. In oven baking dish place 1 pint of plain tomato sauce, place rolls pinwheel end up and butter top lightly and sprinkle with parmesan.

Keep the rolls tight.
And finish with a squeeze.
