Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups

These Spinach Lasanga Roll Ups are one of our families favorite dishes to make. They are flavorful and filling.

 

 

 

 

 

 

1 Pkg (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry  (sometimes I use 3 cups fresh spinach)

1 cup shredded mozzarella

1 cup cottage cheese ( I will sometimes use 1/2 cup cottage cheese and 1/2 cup ricotta)

3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided

1 egg lightly beaten

6 lasagna noodles

2 cans (15 oz each) seasoned tomato sauce for lasagna- you can also use a jar of spaghetti sauce

1 lb ground beef or turkey

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning

 

Brown beef/turkey  with garlic and Italian seasoning, drain beef

In a bowl, combine spinach, mozzarella, cottage cheese, 1/2 cup parmesan and egg.  Add ground beef Spread a heaping 1/3 over each noodle

Roll up; secure with toothpicks and place seam side down in a baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Pour the tomato or spaghetti sauce over the roll-ups. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 33-38 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese. Discard the toothpicks.

Note: This recipe was adapted from the 2008 Quick cooking cookbook. I don’t usually refrigerate overnight, I do however usually prepare dinner in the early afternoon and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. I also added the ground beef and seasonings.  My husband insist upon meat with his meals 🙂

  1. This is my daughter’s favorite lasagna, roll ups! She’ll even beg me to let her help out in the kitchen when I’m making roll ups. And quite frankly, she’s getting really good at it. At 7, she could perfectly roll a lasagna on her own, lol! She’ll even put basil leaves markings on the ones she did, she really takes pride of her roll ups!
