Lasagna Roll Ups

In an attempt to lower our monthly grocery bill, I have frozen a few extra meals in order have them ready to go on days I don’t feel like cooking.

One of my favorite meals for freezing is Lasagna Roll Ups. I got this recipe from a Contadina cook book a long time ago.

*not my picture, obviously – I have never and will never take the time to garnish our plates

Lasagna Roll Ups
1 pound Italian sausage
12 oz tomato paste*
1 2/3 cups water*
1 chopped onion
1 clove garlic (I always use more)
Basil and oregano to your liking
1 egg
10 oz frozen chopped spinach
15 oz. Ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
10 cooked lasagna noodles
* I usually skip the tomato paste and water and use tomato sauce



1) In large skillet, crumble sausage and cook. Add onion and garlic. Cook until no longer pink. Drain.

2) Stir tomato paste, water, oregano, and basil in sausage mixture. Bring to a boil.

3) Reduce heat to simmer.

4) In medium blow, beat egg lightly. Add spinach, ricotta cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.

5) Spread about 1/2 cup cheese mixture onto each noodle. Roll the noodle up and place seam down in baking dish.

6) Pour sauce over the rolls; top with remaining mozzarella cheese.

7) Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes or until heated through.
