Ingredients

Meat Sauce

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp oregano dried
  • 1 tsp basil dried
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 28 oz diced tomatoes 1 can
  • 14.5 oz tomato sauce 1 can

Filling

  • 10 oz frozen spinach thawed and squeezed well (1 pkg)
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded

Instructions

  • Cook noodles: Cook lasagna noodles according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  • Make sauce: In a large sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef and using a spoon, break the meat into small pieces. Cook until the beef is no longer pink, should take about 5 minutes. Add the onion, garlic, oregano, basil, salt and pepper and cook another 5 minutes until the onion is translucent. 
  • Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and stir. Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Prepare spinach/cheese filling: In a medium sized bowl add the spinach, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Prepare oven: Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.
  • Assemble lasagna roll-ups: Spread a couple ladles of the sauce over the bottom of a baking dish. Lay out lasagna noodles, make sure they are dry. Spread about 2 to 3 tbsp of the spinach/cheese mixture and 1 or 2 tbsp of the meat mixture over each lasagna noodle, and roll it up. Make sure you divide the spinach/cheese mixture evenly over the 12 noodles. Place each roll seam side down over the sauce. Repeat with remaining noodles. 
  • Ladle remaining sauce over the lasagna rolls, then sprinkle with the 2 cups of mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake: Cover the lasagna dish with aluminum foil and bake covered for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes
  • Top with fresh basil or parsley if preferred, then serve while warm.

Notes

  1. Leftovers: Cool the lasagna first, then cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil or if it’s cooled completely you can use plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
  2. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
