Lasagna Roll Ups

I've been quite the slacker around here lately!  I've pretty much given up cooking.  Not really.  I've decided to give each of the kids a night of the week they get to cook dinner.  It's been pretty much amazing!  I actually have time to help the kids with reading and homework now and I still get to cook on the weekends.

These Lasagna Roll Ups were one of the things I got to make this weekend.  To say they were a hit would be almost an understatement!  The little dude licked his plate clean (literally.  He seems to think he's a puppy.....), and every last one of the kids ate without a single negative comment.  And they all ate their food.  All gone!

1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
2 cups spinach, roughly cut
5 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded and divided
1 (28 ounce) jar pasta sauce
12 lasagna noodles, cooked according to package directions

Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish and spread 1 cup of pasta sauce on the bottom of the dish.  Combine ricotta cheese, spices, egg, spinach and 4 cups mozzarella cheese in a large mixing bowl; mix well.  Lay the noodles flat and spread about 1/3 cup of the cheese mixture on each noodle.  Roll each noodle up and place seam-side down in the baking dish.  Top with remaining pasta sauce and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

  4. I love roll-ups because they are so much easier to scoop out of the pan than regular lasagna! Thanks for sharing at Sweet & Savory Saturdays #11.
