  4. Meanwhile, add ricotta cheese, feta cheese, chopped dill and thyme in a bowl. Mash them using a fork. Add more salt if needed.
  5. Start stuffing the rolls. Use 1tbsp of cheese mix per roll.
  6. Add peeled tomatoes with sauce in a casserole dish.
  7. Place the rolls on top and squeeze them together.

  9. Serve these ricotta rolls hot with sour cream on top. Heavenly! 😀
