Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups Recipe

Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups Recipe

Friends we hadn't seen for a while dropped by unexpectedly. They were on a tight schedule, and if I wanted them to stay for supper, I needed to fix something quickly. I didn't have time to make lasagna, so I created this special dish.—Julia Trachsel, Victoria, British Columbia
