Healthy Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups

It’s been forever since posting last, mainly because when I do have free time, I’ve been working on a new site that I am so excited about!

Though I love posting new healthy recipes, I have a passion for something more.  I want to continue giving people ideas for healthy living beyond just recipes.  Stay tuned for more to come in the next month or so!

Until then, I want to share a delicious, healthy and easy lasagna recipe with you!  The great thing is that it is meatless but full of flavor and you won’t even miss the meat!

I modified this recipe to make it slightly healthier by using Dreamfield’s high fiber pasta.

This not only tastes wonderful, but is really a pretty dish.  Added bonus: you can freeze part of the recipe!  I’d recommend freezing half of this recipe.

 Healthy Lasagna Roll-ups Recipe

What you’ll need:

9 Whole wheat or multi-grain lasagna noodles

1 10-oz frozen chopped spinach

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

15 oz reduced fat ricotta cheese

32 oz tomato sauce (I used Bertolli’s and it worked great)

3/4 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Thaw spinach in microwave and drain all excess water off.

3.  Cook lasagna noodles until done.

4. While lasagna noodles are cooking, combine spinach, ricotta cheese, and Parmesan cheese in a bowl.

5.  Place each lasagna noodle flat on wax paper.

6. Spread 1/3 cup of mixture evenly on each noodle and roll up.

7.  Put about 1 cup of tomato sauce in bottom of 9 x 13 pan.  Place the roll-ups in pan, seam side down.

8.  Pour rest of the tomato sauce over all of the roll-ups. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese and salt and pepper.

9.  Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.

{note: if you want to double the recipe and freeze some, put roll-ups in freezer bag or container before cooking!}

    How much ricotta cheese did you use? I would love to try these, but don’t see it listed! :)
