Yummy, Yummy

Every now and then I like to share a recipe that the family loves. Well, we LOVE this dinner. The Smurfs request it every week and it has become a fast family favorite...

Calories: 224.9 • Fat: 5.1 g Fiber: 3.4 g Protein: 13.0 g Carbs: 31.5

  • 9 lasagna noodles, cooked
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and completely drained
  • 15 oz fat free ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • 32 oz tomato sauce
  • 9 tbsp (about 3 oz) part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, egg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Ladle about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking dish.

Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and lay out lasagna noodles. Make sure noodles are dry. Take 1/3 cup of ricotta mixture and spread evenly over noodle. Roll carefully and place seam side down onto the baking dish. Repeat with remaining noodles.

Ladle sauce over the noodles in the baking dish and top each one with 1 tbsp mozzarella cheese. Put foil over baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, or until cheese melts. Makes 9 rolls.

To serve, ladle a little sauce on the plate and top with lasagna roll.

If you are paying attention then you have already realized that the recipe calls for 9 noodles and there are 12 in my's my adaptation of the original recipe:

in bowl number 1 I mix:

1/2 pound browned ground beef
1/2 container 15 oz part skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded parm cheese
1 egg
salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning to taste

in bowl number 2 I mix:
10 oz frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 container 15 oz part skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded parm cheese
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste

From here I follow the rest of the recipe. Each bowl makes 6 lasagna rolls. 12 fit into a 9x13 pan easily and are super yummy! My picture is a little janky, so click the link above to check out Gina's awesome pictures!

Make, eat, and enjoy!
