So I made these tonight for dinner and they were so good, you wouldn’t even know that they’re “healthy”.

This recipe comes from one of my favorite sites Skinny taste

 

Ingredients

-9 lasagna noodles, cooked

-10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and completely drained

-15 oz fat free ricotta cheese (I like Polly-o)

-1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

-1 egg

-salt and fresh pepper

-32 oz tomato sauce

-9 tbsp (about 3 oz) part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine spinach, ricotta,  Parmesan, egg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

2. Ladle about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking dish.

3. Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and lay out lasagna noodles. Make sure noodles are dry.

4. Take 1/3 cup of ricotta mixture and spread evenly over noodle. Roll carefully and place seam side down onto the baking dish. Repeat with remaining noodles.

5. Ladle sauce over the noodles in the baking dish and top each one with 1 tbsp mozzarella cheese. Put foil over baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, or until cheese melts. Makes 9 rolls

6. To serve, ladle a little sauce on the plate and top with lasagna roll
