Ingredients

  • 12 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 3 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 5 cups marinara sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella

Instructions

  • In a large pot, cook the lasagna noodles as per the directions on the box.
  • Whole the noodles are cooking, heat the oil in a large skillet.
  • When the oil is heated, add the spinach to the skillet. Cook the spinach down, and then set aside in a bowl. Line the bowl with a paper towel so remove any excess moisture or oil.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, Parmesan, grated zucchini, grated carrots, and spinach.
  • Once the noodles are cooked. Lay them out on a pan so you can work quickly.
  • Divide the cheese/veggie filling across all noodles. Spoon it onto each noodle and use the back of the spoon to spread it down the entire length of the noodle.
  • Do the same with half of the marinara sauce. Spoon sauce onto the cheese/veggie mixture on each noodle and use the back of the spoon to spread the sauce down the length of the noodle.
  • Starting from the bottom (end of the noodle closest to you), gently roll the lasagna noodle up.
  • This recipe perfectly fills a 13 X 9 dish, but whichever dish or container you choose to use, spoon marinara sauce to cover the bottom surface.
  • Add the roll ups to your baking dish.
  • Cover the lasagna roll ups with the remaining marinara.
  • Top the lasagna roll ups with shredded mozzarella.
  • If freezing, freeze your lasagna roll ups unbaked. Place a layer of plastic wrap on the top, then cover with foil.
  • To bake, preheat oven to 375°F and bake for 45 minutes until warm through out. If baking from frozen, increase time to approximately 90 minutes.
