Easy Cheesy Lasagna Rollups

These rollups make perfect portions that don't ooze out all over the place after you've cut the lasagna. I used three kinds of cheese inside and topped it with a fourth cheese for gooey deliciousness. Hope you like it!

Ingredients

12
lasagna noodles, cooked
1 tsp
salt
1 c
ricotta cheese, part-skim
1 c
cottage cheese, small curd
1/2 c
parmesan cheese
1
egg
1 tsp
garlic salt
1 c
spinach, fresh, chopped
1 can(s)
tomato sauce, 15 oz
1 can(s)
marina sauce, 15 oz
1 Tbsp
italian seasoning
1 c
mozarella cheese, shredded
4
basil leaves, fresh
1 Tbsp
olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and lasagna noodles. Cook until al dente, then drain and rinse in cold water. Pat dry with paper towels.
2
While lasagna noodles are cooking, mix together filling ingredients: ricotta cheese, cottage cheese and parmesan cheese with the egg and garlic salt. Stir in the chopped spinach.
3
In a separate bowl, mix the sauce ingredients: tomato sauce, marinara sauce, and Italian seasoning.
4
Lay one noodle out on a flat mat or cutting board. Spoon cheese-spinach filling onto noodle and spread to about 1/8" thickness, covering entire noodle. Place 2 large, fresh basil leaves on top and roll up noodle lengthwise. Place seam-side down in a 9x13 glass baking dish that has been coated with a drizzle of olive oil and a 1/4 cup of the marinara sauce. I fit 3 rows across and four down for a total of 12 rolls.
5
Top rolls with the rest of the marinara sauce and sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese all over the top.
6
Bake at 350 degrees in the oven for 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes and serve one roll per portion. Actually, they might want two rolls!
