How to Make Ricotta Lasagna Swirls


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. For the filling steam spinach until its limp, but not mushy. You do not need any water to do this. Just put the washed spinach in a pan with a tight fitting lid and cook it over low heat about 7 minutes.
  3. Mix the spinach with the cheeses, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Spread each lasagna noodle with 2 to 3 tablespoons of the mixture along the entire length, roll up (end to end), turn on end so that you see the spiral and place in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Mix all the sauce ingredients together pour over all rolled-up noodles. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
