Pasta Roll-ups with Turkey and Spinach

Submitted by: SHAPESHIFTER13


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 lb ground turkey breast
    3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    1 28-oz can whole tomatoes in juice
    1 tsp salt
    8 sheets dried high-protein or whole-wheat lasagna
    1 10-oz box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
    1 15-oz container non-fat ricotta cheese
    1 egg
    3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

Directions

1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another minute. Turn heat to medium-high and add ground turkey, breaking it up with a spatula until meat shows no sign of pink. Stir in cinnamon and nutmeg, then add tomatoes and salt. Reduce heat to medium-low, stir, cover and let simmer for 20 minutes, occasionally stirring and breaking up tomatoes with a wooden spoon.

2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain, rinse and allow to cool in a colander.

3. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Squeeze all remaining moisture from thawed spinach and place in large bowl. Add ricotta cheese, egg and a 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese to bowl. Stir until combined.

4. Spread 1 cup of cooked tomato sauce into bottom of a 9" x 10" casserole dish. Lay a cooked lasagna noodle flat in front of you. Use your fingers to spread 1/8 of ricotta mixture across the noodle and roll it up. Place the rolled pasta seam side down, into the casserole dish. Repeat with remaining noodles. Spread remaining tomato sauce over roll-ups, then top with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella.

5. Bake, covered with foil, for 20 minutes. Remove foil and broil for 5 minutes or until the rollups are browned and bubbly.
