Spinach Lasagna Roll Up's {Recipe Swap}

Hey friends! I'm typing this while watching the On The Run documentary showcasing Beyonce & Jay-Z's tour last summer. I know I'm like 1 year too late, but I just got HBO Now and it's awesome, I'm fully taking advantage of all the features of it. Regarding the documentary...I mean it's Beyonce, she killed it. I only wish I saw her live, hopefully she goes on tour again soon or is at the Houston Rodeo next year!

In other exciting news, my beautiful coworker is having her beautiful baby boy today via section. I know she is awfully nervous/excited/anxious so if y'all don't mind saying a sweet prayer for an easy surgery and for mama & baby to be healthy, that would be wonderful!

Anywho, I saw this recipe on Pinterest awhile back and knew I've wanted to make it since it seemed really easy (and it really is), plus it tastes amazing! I love the fact that you can make these, stick the extra in the freezer and then heat it up whenever you feel like having one. As far as the recipe went, I really didn't measure anything out, I pretty much eyeballed it to my taste for the most part so use your judgement on how much of what to use based on what you want.


-1 box Lasagna pasta
-Ragu traditional pasta sauce
-Mozzarella cheese
-Parmesan cheese
-Ricotta cheese
-Green onion
-White onion
-Salt & Pepper (to taste)

What to do:

1. Mix the spinach, green & white onion in olive oil and fresh garlic in a medium pan over the stove until spinach and onions cook. Add salt, pepper, basil, & oregano. Cook until all the water is evaporated.

2. Let the mixture cool for a bit, once fully cooled, add ricotta, parmesan and mozzarella cheese to mixture. Add in pasta sauce to give the mix some moisture.

-Follow the directions on the lasagna box to get those cooked, usually 11-13 mins until it's al dente-

3. When you have the pasta cooked and mixture done, lay out the strips of lasagna and at an angle add the mixture in 3 small piles. Add mozzarella cheese on top of each pile.

4. Roll from one end tightly being careful not to spill over the filling. I ate 2 of the rolls so I placed them on a plate and individually added however much pasta sauce I desired along with a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese. Heat until cheese and sauce are heated up.


Like I said, it'll yield plenty, but the extra rolls you can throw into the freezer without the sauce on it (I find when defrosting, the sauce gets too watery). This is the perfect dish to make ahead and freeze to pull out for lunch or on a night you just don't want to make anything.
