Spinach Turkey Roll Recipe

Spinach Turkey Roll Recipe

My husband doesn't care much for garlic, so I use elephant garlic, which is milder. He never mentions the garlic being too strong in this recipe, so we're both satisfied with the results. --Delia Kennedy of Deer Park, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce, divided
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce, eggs, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, basil, oregano and mustard. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well.
  • 2. On a sheet of waxed paper, pat turkey mixture into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Sprinkle with spinach and cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side and peeling waxed paper away while rolling. Seal seam and ends. Place seam side down in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray.
