Spinach Meat Roll Recipe

We love the spinach, ham and cheese swirled in every slice. Sometimes I serve it with spaghetti sauce and pasta.—Gail Buss, Westminster, Maryland

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen leaf spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

"This is my favorite recipe to make for company. Everyone is always impressed and asks for the recipe. I love to serve it with pasta and a choice of marinara, alfredo, and pesto sauces."
