Lasagna Roll-Ups!

Yummm, I got this recipe from this awesome blog :) it was so simple and really didn't require too much hustle and bustle! Plus the recipe makes 6 servings, who doesn't like having leftovers?!


  1. 6 whole wheat (or fiber plus) lasagna sheets
  2. 1 cup cooked ground chicken or cooked lean ground turkey/ lean ground beef
  3. 1 cup low fat cottage cheese, blended in a blender or food processor until smooth, (or low fat ricotta)
  4. 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  5. 1/2 cup parmesan, separated
  6. 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  7. 1/4 tsp salt
  8. 1/4 tsp basil + 1/4 tsp oregano
  9. 1 jar spaghetti sauce


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1 cup of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of the baking dish. Set aside.
2. In a large pot, bring water to a boil, and cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. (I recommend cooking a few more than 6, just in case one breaks or tears).
3. Meanwhile, in a medium size bowl, mix together meat, 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce, cottage cheese, spinach, 1/4 cup Parmesan, and spices.
4. When noodles are cooked, drain in a colander, and lay on a kitchen towel to dry. Start assembling lasagna roll ups by spreading 1/6 of the meat mixture over each individual lasagna noodle.
5. Roll noodle, and place seam side down in baking dish.
6. Pour the remaining sauce over the noodles, and sprinkle remaining parmesan cheese, (and mozzarella cheese if desired), over the top.
7. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes covered with foil, remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
