Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups

One night friends on a tight schedule stopped by. I invited them to stay for dinner, so I needed something I could fix in short order. I created these savory roll-ups, featuring a creamy three-cheese filling. They taste like lasagna but bake in a fraction of the time. —Julia Trachsel Victoria, British Columbia

    I made these and immediately froze for later use. I take out 2, thaw in fridge, add spaghetti sauce to glass loaf pan and only make "single serving" and save the rest for another day! Nice to give a ziploc bag of them to a shut-in also!

    I made this for the first time, so it took me a little longer than the total 55 minutes. But I was blown away by the flavor. The recipe only calls for sauce on top, but I added a little more Parmesan and mozzarella (glad I did!). I’ll definitely make this again...and again...and easy to whip up!

    Wonderful tasty recipe! I do all the cooking in the house, but my Mom made this when I was recovering from back surgery and it was a hit! We had leftovers which we freezed, and we loved them! I am making this week.

    Great recipe! However I did a few things to change it.First off, I made a little less of the cheese mixture, lower all the amounts including the egg except I higher-ed the amount of mozzarella in the mixture. I also cooked the spinach beforehand with garlic. I am a huge fan of garlic so I also added garlic to the mixture and omitted the nutmeg.Then when layering I actually put both the cheese mixture and sauce on each before rolling.I followed the directions regarding the sauce on the bottom then the rolled lasagna and then sauce again. However I added mozzarella cheese on top of the rolls. Came out wonderful.

    5-Stars, for sure!!! Making these for a family dinner of 20, so I doubled the recipe. Waaaay too much filling! But after everyone ate, it wasn't hard to send some home with my daughter! These are easy and tasty; have made the roll-up style before but couldn't find the recipe. I followed the recipe exactly (not sure the nutmeg belongs) and can't think how I would change it ... the next time!

    This is a great receipe full of flavor. I did make a few changes (as I always do) I don't know why, maybe I'm a rebel but I just can't follow orders or directions for that matter without adding my own twist haha. With that said... What I did is omitted the nutmeg and added garlic and onion powder, basil leaves and a little bit of fennel seed oh and I didn't use a jar of spaghetti sauce, I used a little bit of leftover spaghetti sauce (I always make from scratch and freeze) and added a can of tomato sauce to that with some crushed fresh garlic and more basil and of course salt and pepper. Everything else I followed the receipe well the ingredients part and it turned out delicious! Definitely will be on our menu again!
