Lasagne for One, Please

I’m still focused on finding ways to prepare healthy, delicious dinners that don’t take forever to put together after I get home from work. I found a recipe for individual lasagna servings that’s really super. It can be prepared in advance, leftover servings frozen for future means, plus it’s cheap, ringing up at under a $1 per serving.

Lasagna Roll Ups
  • 1 lb lasagna noodles
  • 15 oz ricotta
  • 1 c shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 c grated Parmesan
  • 1 egg
  • 10 oz frozen spinach, hawed
  • 2.5 c marinara sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Non-stick spray
Bring 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 (about 12-15 minutes). Drain cooked noodles. While the noodles are boiling, prepare the filling. Squeeze as much excess liquid as possible from spinach, and combine in a bowl with the ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, egg, freshly grated pepper and a dash of salt. Mix until well combined. When the noodles and filling are prepared, preheat the oven to 400F. Prepare a glass casserole dish by spraying with non-stick spray. 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. Roll the noodles up and place in the prepared casserole dish. Repeat until the filling used up (you will likely not use all of the noodles). Pour the marinara sauce over the rolled noodles, covering all surfaces. The sauce keeps the noodles hydrated and soft while baking. Cover the dish in foil and bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot or divide into individual portions and refrigerate.
