Pinterest Inspired Wednesday- Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Last week I had two of my closest friends over for dinner and to celebrate Christmas.  I used it as an opportunity to try out one of the recipes I had found on Pinterest.  Here is the pin that inspired me:



Here is how mine turned out:



Here is the recipe:

Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Servings: 9 • Serving Size: 1 roll


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:

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, egg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Ladle about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking dish.

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

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.

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


The girls loved it!  And I even forgot an ingredient...I forgot to add the Parmesan cheese!  Oh well.  It didn't matter.  Everyone cleaned their plates!


The recipe is healthy too!  It is from skinnytaste.com and I have a feeling I am going to try a lot more recipes from that site!

The reason why I really started this Pinterest Inspired Wednesday series was because I want to see what you guys have made, bought, baked, been inspired to DO based on a pin you pinned on pinterest!  Sometimes they turn out good and sometimes not so good.  Was it all you ever hoped for or did it let you down?  Was it as easy as they say or incredibly hard?  Come on!  Share your experiences too! 

And as always Follow Me on Pinterest so I can get more ideas of things to DO!
