Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Sometimes I have a really hard time getting my kids to eat veggies. This is one of those recipes that I secretly do my evil laugh while they eat it. Full of veggies, low in calories, and so full of flavor they have no idea they’re eating something healthy. It’s a beautiful thing! Each lasagna roll has 224 calories and 6 Weight Watchers points. Can’t beat that!

Ingredients

  • 9 lasagna noodles, cooked
  • 1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and completely drained
  • 1 (15 oz) container fat free ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasonings
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • 1 chicken breast, cooked and diced (omit for vegetarian option)
  • 32 oz. spaghetti sauce
  • 9 Tbsp. part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Instructions

      The rest of the sauce is used to ladle over the top of each roll. They won’t all be completely covered and it won’t be used when rolling up each roll. Just to ladle on top of each individual roll.

      Actually I wasn’t talking about the sauce. The recipe says to use 1/3 of the ricotta mixture on 1 piece of lasagna. While I was typing this note I realized my mistake. It says 1/3 CUP not 1/3 of the ricotta mixture. Thank you for answering so quickly. I figured I’d leave the part of the note I was typing so you could plainly see MY error. Thanks..

    I’m not a big spinach fan, so I used kale. I chopped it into small pieces and steamed it down and used it in place of the spinach. DELICIOUS!!!
