Turkey & Spinach Lasagna roll ups (Seymour)

Submitted by: SEYMOURCHICK
Turkey & Spinach Lasagna roll ups (Seymour)

Introduction

A super easy dinner idea with endless possibilities for variation. I can't exactly say that it's a "quick" recipe because it does have to bake a while but the actual assembly is really quick and easy.

I filled my Lasagna Roll Ups with sausage, spinach and cheese but you could also do mushrooms, pesto, or any meat. You really can make this one your own.

Combine the roll ups with a classic salad and some quick garlic bread and you've got a stellar meal that has "date night" written all over it. If you don't have a date, simply pop them into individual containers and freeze. When you're ready for a serving just take one out and microwave until it's cooked through. Take that, Marie Callender!

Number of Servings: 7

Ingredients

    15 lasagna noodles
    20 oz. Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey
    24 oz. cottage cheese (I used 2%)
    2 cup shredded reduced fat mozzarella
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan
    1 lg. egg
    10 oz. frozen spinach, prepared
    2.5 cups healthy smart pasta sauce
    Salt and pepper to taste

Tips

This can be made without turkey as well.


Directions

STEP 1: Get a large pot of water boiling with a dash of salt. When it comes to a full boil, add the lasagna noodles and cook until al dente (soft but not soggy... about 12-15 minutes). When they are finished cooking, drain in a colander.

STEP 2: While the noodles are boiling, brown the turkey. Set aside.

STEP 3: Prepare the filling. Thaw the package of frozen spinach in the microwave and then squeeze out as much excess liquid as possible. Combine the spinach in a bowl with the cottage cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, egg, freshly grated pepper and about 1/4 tsp of salt. Mix until well combined. Mix in turkey.

STEP 4: When the noodles and filled and are ready to go, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a glass casserole dish by spraying with non-stick spray.

STEP 5: On a clean surface, lay out a few noodles at a time. Place a few tablespoons of filling on each noodle and spread to cover from edge to edge. The filling does not need to be thick because once the noodle is rolled up, it will be compounded. Make sure to spread it all the way to the edges of the noodles.

STEP 6: Roll the noodles up and place in the prepared casserole dish. Repeat until all of your filling is gone. Pour the marinara sauce over the rolled noodles making sure to cover all surfaces. The sauce will keep the noodles hydrated and soft while baking.

STEP 7: Cover the dish in foil and bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot or divide into individual portions and refrigerate.

Serving Size: Serves approx. 7 people. Serving size is 2 Lasagna rollups.
