Ok so once again I have been MIA... I am not going to lie this blogging thing is tough to keep up with...but I am back and ready with lots of recipes.. I might have been MIA from blogging but Not from the kitchen, I have diligently been taking pictures and documenting my cooking endeavors. First up is one of those recipes that I have probably pulled out of magazines a gajillion times.. And of course never made! Story of my life...no really if you could see the piles and piles of recipes ripped out of mags..my nemesis! Ok back to the recipe drum roll please....
Spinach Lasagna Rolls....
I love lasagna as it is but I loved the idea of how portable these were.. Because they are rolled up they are easier to pack up for lunch or to bring over to my parents house. ( I'm a good doobie and cook for them often.. I realized that after all this time saving the recipe it was pretty much the same as my regular lasagna so I dumped all that paper lol and winged it.
Spinach Lasagna Rolls
Preheat oven to 350'
Items needed: Baking Dish 9 x 13
10 lasagna noodles, only need 8, 2 extra just on case, cooked per directions 1
10 oz pkge spinach, thawed and completely drained** very important to drain well
1 15 oz container fat free ricotta cheese
1 c Mozzarella cheese
1/2 c Parmesan cheese

Pour 1 cup sauce in baking dish In a large bowl mix the ricotta, 3/4 cup of the mozzarella, 2 tbs of the Parmesan, salt, pepper and the spinach, mix well.
Lay a nice size piece of wax paper ( I didn't have any so I used parchment paper worked well but wax is probably better. Lay lasagna noodles down on the paper and pat dry
Place each noodle seam side down in the baking dish Repeat with remaining noodles and ladle sauce over them and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese
Cover with foil and bake about 40 minutes until cheese is bubbly then remove foil and just slightly brown the cheese yummy!!
Ladle some sauce on a plate to serve and enjoy!!
