Here’s another good recipe that’s a bit of a twist on lasagna…(ha-ha, rollups!) I made this recently and we really enjoyed it and it has spinach, so that’s an extra plus. You can adjust the recipe to make more or less and I didn’t use a whole lb. of lasagna noodles, but only 6:
Spinach and Cheese Lasagna Roll-ups
15 oz. ricotta cheese
1 10-oz. pkg. frozen spinach (I used fresh & steamed it first)
1 TBL parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lb. lasagna noodles
1 15-oz can tomato sauce
1 TBL parmesan cheese
Combine ricotta cheese, spinach, egg, Parmesan, salt & pepper. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water until done. Spread with spinach mixture and roll up. Place seam-side down in 9×13 in. baking dish. Top with tomato sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake at 350* for 30 to 35 min.
I made my regular homemade spaghetti sauce for this, instead of just using a can of tomato sauce and also added a little extra cheese on top when I baked it. We really loved it and it’s a keeper too!

Perfect! I have a package of lasagna noodles in the fridge. Just need to pick up some ricotta! I wonder if I could add mushrooms or eggplant to make it more hearty. I’m trying to get my husband to eat more meatless meals!

I love fresh takes on traditional food, especially Italian food! These look so good! I’ll have to try them. I love spinach!
I also posted about white lasagna today that is super scrumptious. Maybe I’ll turn that into a roll-up! Thanks for the recipe!

We eat lot’s of spinach! This looks so yummy! 🙂
wow! that looks so delicious Rhoda!! you always share the greatest recipes!
This dish looks scrumptious and I can taste it already!! I would like to ask a question about your zebra placements – did you make them – if yes where did you get the fabric and is it washable – or did you purchase them. do you think they would look good with blue and white dishes??

Yum! This looks absolutely delicious. I’m going to have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!
Hi, Carrie, those placemats were yardsale finds & I think they came from Pier One,although it’s been a few years, so they may not have them anymore. I’m not sure they would look that great with blue and white dishes. If I were you, I’d go for something in the gold family to accent them. You might go for a gold or brown zebra or leopard print, which might accent your dishes better.
Yum-o! This looks fabulous. I will be turning to this dish next time I think about making lasagna!
There’s certainly a lot to learn about this issue.
I love all the points you made.
