Place the roll on top of sauce and bake for 15 minutes and then cover and bake another 15 to 20 minutes. Brown with a little coating of EVOO.

OMG this dish was SO delicious. I give you the organic brands that I absolutely love, you can hopefully find them online to keep in your pantry. Any brands I list are for taste assurance and quality. The saffron rice is key!
