Its been a long day. Wednesdays are always hard around here. Does anyone else feel that way? Anyway, about 4pm my kids started screaming and demanding food. I was excited for dinner tonight because these lasagna roll ups are divine! They turned out even better than the first time for some reason, but I forgot to get bread at the store. I guess less carbs, right? So lasagna roll ups and salad for dinner tonight! These really are amazing
If you're on the 21 day fix 2 of these rolls equals out 1 Red, 1 Purple, 1 Yellow, 1 Blue, 1 Green
9 Cooked Lasagna Noodles
1.5 Cups Fresh Baby Spinach
2 Cups Ricotta Cheese
1/2 Parmesan Cheese
1/2 Teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound Ground Turkey Cooked
1 Cup Mozzarella Shredded
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Cook Lasagna Noodles according to package instructions. Put ground turkey on skillet and add salt and pepper to taste. Crumble and cook until all pink has cooked out. Set aside.
2. Mix Ricotta Cheese, spinach, parmesan cheese, egg, garlic, Italian seasoning, pepper, salt in bowl. Add in ground turkey. Set aside.
3. In a baking dish, place 1 cup of pasta sauce around the bottom of the dish. Spread evenly.
4. Lay a piece of wax paper on your counter, place lasagna noodles on paper and dab with paper towel to make sure all moisture is gone.
5. Spread cheese mixture evenly over each piece of lasagna. Begin rolling one strip of lasagna at one end and roll all the way up. Place in baking dish seam side down. Continue process with all lasagna pieces.
6. Top lasagna rolls with sauce and mozzarella cheese. Place aluminum foil over dish tightly and place in preheated oven. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve immediately.
NOTE: My cheese grater was in the dirty dishes, so I may have just taken nice slices of mozzarella cheese and put them on top... ya know..I had to work with what I had ;) Also, I didn't realize until I started dinner I didn't have any ground turkey left over, so no meat was put into these this time and they still tasted truly amazing! One final note, because there was no meat I wanted to make sure these had some kind of "kick" to them (I don't like bland stuff) so I threw in a dash of crushed red pepper and it was quite delicious. Make this recipe your own! What would you switch up about it? Let me know in the comments!
