This is an adaptation of these Spinach Lasagna Rolls I made a few months ago. These lasagna rolls have become almost a constant in our dinner rotations. I love doing them for #meatlessmonday, and I've been loving doing them with alfredo sauce. So this is my latest reinvention of the recipe.
- 9 lasagna noodles
- 1 small container ricotta
- 1 egg
- 2 - 3 cups shredded mozzarella
- 6 oz frozen spinach (thawed and drained)
- 6 oz fresh mushrooms (washed and patted dry)
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- salt and pepper
- 1 jar of alfredo sauce (I like Newman's Own)
and boil just until softened and pliable. About 6 minutes.
While your noodles are cooking, prepare the ricotta mixture.
In a bowl combine the ricotta, egg, salt and pepper and 2 tablespoons
shredded mozzarella. Stir to combine.
Set aside a small bowl with about a cup of shredded cheese.
In a small sautee pan melt butter over medium high heat. Add in mushrooms, salt and pepper and sauté about 5 minutes. Add in spinach, cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
You now have everything prepared and you can start with the assembly.
Place about 1/2 cup of alfredo sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
Lay 3 lasagna noodles out at a time on your work surface. Layer on some ricotta.
Then a little of the spinach and mushroom mixture.
Sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top, then roll each noodle up- the fun part!
Spoon remaining alfredo sauce on the tops of all the rolls.
Top with shredded cheese. The more the better.
Bake @ 350 for 25 minutes. Broil 1-2 minutes to get a nice golden
crust on the cheese!
Served with croustinis and salad. Perfecto!
I really enjoy making and eating lasagna rolls. I think there are a few reasons that make the way I do this very appealing. #1- It makes perfect portions. #2- You can usually do this 2 times with 1 box of lasagna noodles. #3- Its fun to lay out and actually make with your hands. #4- The portions that are leftover are great to reheat the next day for lunches! That concludes my lasagna roll campaign - Cheers!
