Description

Lasagna Roll Ups are perfectly portioned, so cheesy, and full of veggies- a great crowd pleasing dinner! Do yourself a favor and make a double batch of lasagna rolls because they freeze perfectly and are amazing for meal prep, too.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 whole wheat or GF lasagna noodles
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 pound ground sweet Italian chicken sausage (don’t like? Use lean ground beef or turkey)
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and completely drained or 2 cups of of fresh spinach, chopped small
  • 8 oz part skim ricotta or cottage cheese (I used cottage cheese and it was GREAT!)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • sprinkle of crushed red pepper (optional)
  • homemade or no sugar added tomato sauce, 1 jar
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. Cook lasagna noodles al-dente
  2. While noodles are cooking, spray pan with olive oil spray and cook sausage until browned and no pink remains. Remove from heat, drain, and let cool slightly.
  3. Preheat oven to 350
  4. Combine cooked sausage, spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, HALF of the mozzarella, egg, salt, black and red pepper (if using) in a medium bowl.
  5. Place a piece of wax or parchment paper on the counter and lay out lasagna noodles. If necessary, pat noodles dry with paper toweling.
  6. Add 1 cup of sauce to the bottom of a 9×12 baking dish
  7. Take about 1/3 cup of sausage mixture and spread evenly over one noodle. Repeat until all noodles are covered. Roll each noodle carefully and place seam side down into the baking dish.
  8. Ladle 1-2 T of sauce over top the roll ups in the baking dish. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese over noodles.
  9. Cover and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese melts. Uncover for the last few minutes if desired.
