Lasagna Roll-ups November 2, 2011

Filed under: Pasta — WannaBe Chef @ 11:35 am

This is gonna be a quicky…. last night, I somehow managed to make these lasagna roll-ups.  I say “somehow managed” because I had to assemble these while wearing my child in a carrier because she absolutely refuses to sleep… at night or during the day.  Woot.  Anyway, these roll-ups were definitely tasty and flavorful!  I am not a ricotta fan, so I really liked how this version of lasagna used blended up cottage cheese.  I used the recipe more as a guideline since I couldn’t really reference it on the computer screen while said baby was strapped to me.

Lasagna Roll-Ups
Modified from Dashing Dish

Ingredients:

  • 8 lasagna noodles (use the ones with the ridges so the filling and sauce sticks better)
  • a little more than 1/2 pound ground turkey, crumbled and cooked
  • 1/2 box frozen chopped spinach, well drained
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat cottage cheese, blended until almost smooth
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 – 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 – 3/4 tsp italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • about 3/4 jar spaghetti sauce
  • mozzarella cheese for topping

Instructions:

  1. Cook lasagna noodles per package directions
  2. Combine cottage cheese, parm, turkey, spinach, and seasonings in a bowl
  3. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and pour some spaghetti sauce in the bottom of the pan
  4. Spread some filling onto each noodle and roll up, place the rolls seam-side down in casserole dish
  5. Top with more sauce and a sprinkle of parm
  6. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes.  Remove foil, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted.  Use broiler to get the cheese browned, if desired.
