Enjoy lasagna rolled up into fantastic spinach lasagna rolls! This dish is light and hearty all at the same time and one of my kids’ favorites.
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!
Spinach Lasagna Rolls
- 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
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, egg, garlic, Italian seasonings, chicken (if using), and salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour about 1 cup of the spaghetti sauce on the bottom of a 9×13 glass baking dish.
- Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and lay out the lasagna noodles. Make sure they are dry by patting them with a paper towel. Take 1/3 cup of the ricotta mixture and spread evenly over a 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. of mozzarella cheese. Cover the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Serve hot.
