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
1/4 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.
