Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups {Recipe}

June 8, 2012 by 9 Comments

One of these days I need to share with you how I organize
our meal plans!  Each week, we have an Italian-themed meal.
Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups…
is one of our top recipe picks for our Italian-themed night!
It is an easy 30 minute meal and absolutely delicious!

 This recipe calls for cooked old-fashion lasagna noodles. I start by
preheating my oven to 375, then I bring a large pot of water to boil.  While
that is heating up, I mix my cheeses, eggs, spinach, salt, pepper and nutmeg
together in a large bowl.  Next, I cover the bottom of a 13x9x2 inch
baking dish with 1 cup of sauce.  When the water comes to a boil, I add
4 noodles and let them boil 10 minutes.  Using a fork I remove the
noodles from the water and lay them on a plastic cutting board
and replace them with 4 more noodles for 10 minutes.
I then cover each tender noodle with 1/3 cup of cheese sauce.
Then, roll the noodle and place it seam side down in the
baking dish.  Continue until your baking dish is filled with rolled noodles.
Top with the remaining sauce and bake uncovered, at 375
for 20-25 minutes, or until heated thoroughly.

    This looks delicious, and a great way to get veggies into our kids! Thanks for sharing this recipe. It’s going on the menu this week!

    I made these last night for dinner. They were delicious!!! They are VERY filling, though. My husband, son, and I could only eat one roll each, so we are probably going to have leftovers tonight. lol. Thank you SO MUCH for introducing a meal that the whole family loved! This will definitely be added to the rotation!

    A couple tips to the ladies out there that want to try it:
    1) Go ahead and throw all your ingredients (except the pasta and sauce) into one big bowl as you are prepping/getting your stuff out. I put everything into individual bowls unnecessarily, and ended up with extra dishes.
    2) I was able to fit 11 rolls in my pan, which is the exact amount of filling i had, so that worked out perfectly. I layed nine out in a 3×3 square, and then squeezed the last two in the edge going in the other direction.
    3) The prep took about a half hour, and then there was the 25 minute bake time on top of it, for almost an hour from start to finish, not the 30 minutes stated at the top of the page.
    4)Rita May, I used an entire tub of the 15oz ricotta, and about 11 noodles, even though I boiled the whole box (about 16 noodles).

    Thanks again!

    Also, can you use fresh raw spinach? I seem to hate the frozen stuff which has a funny smell to me.

    Hey I just made this tonight, and mostly it was a hit. Still have that one kid that is supicious of anything green,but he will come around one day. My very picky dad even liked it. I am going to put this as one of my weekday recipes. Very easy. I used no boil noodles, cuz I didn’t have any other, and next time I will get the regular curly ones. Now, about that organizational menu planner thingy that you promised….WInk wink I NEED YOU!!!

  6. I like the thought of this instead of the layer lasagna . Thank you for the recipe.
