Mini Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups

Bite-sized spinach lasagna roll-ups served with pizza sauce for dipping.

Ingredients

8
Lasagna noodles, cooked
1
(10 ounce) package (about 1 cup) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1
(15 ounce) container (about 2 cups) ricotta cheese
1/2
cup Parmesan cheese
1
egg
1/2
teaspoon minced garlic
1/2
teaspoon Italian seasonings
1
(15 ounce) can Muir Glen™ organic pizza sauce
1
cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt and pepper, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a rimmed baking dish (1-2 inches deep) with cooking spray and set aside.
  • 2 In a medium bowl combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, egg, garlic, and Italian seasonings. Add salt and pepper if desired.
  • 3 Pat noodles dry with a paper towel and lay them on parchment or wax paper. Cut each noodle in half widthwise. Fill each noodle piece with 2-3 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture, leaving an inch empty on one side of the noodle. Start rolling each noodle up, ending on the side that has one inch empty. (This is so that filling doesn't spill out the end of your rolls.)
  • 4 Slice each noodle roll-up in half with a sharp knife and place, seam side down, in your baking dish. Top each roll with 1 teaspoon of pizza sauce and 1 teaspoon of mozzarella. Make sure your dish is deep enough to cover with foil and not mess up the rolls.
  • 5 Cover baking dish tightly with foil and bake for 18-20 minutes or until cheese is melted inside. (If you like your pasta to have crispy edges, leave pan uncovered.) Serve with warm pizza sauce for dipping.
  • 6 Freezer instructions: Prepare as directed above but freeze right before baking. Reheat by baking for 25-30 minutes at 350°F. Or for a quick snack, freeze after baking and pop one in the microwave any time you want a little bite!

Mini Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Lasagna all dressed up with somewhere to go.

These Mini Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups are tiny little upscale versions of the classic comfort dish filled with a cheesy spinach ricotta mixture.


Ricotta filling for lasagna roll-ups.

How to assemble lasagna roll-ups.

Start with cooked lasagna noodles. Since we're going for the mini version here, I cut noodles in half first, and then filled them up with the ricotta mixture. You want to leave a little on the edge without any filling so it doesn't spill out.


Cut lasagna roll-ups in half.

I wanted to make these bite size, so I cut each roll in half again.


Lasagna roll-ups ready to cook.

Place them with the beautiful curly edge of the noodle out. Look how elegant and fancy they are!


Top with a dab of pizza sauce.

Add a dab of pizza sauce on top even though we'll be dipping them later. We want to make sure every bite has all of the lasagna flavors.


Top with sauce and cheese.

I sprinkled just a tiny bit of mozzarella on top of the pizza sauce to give it a finished look.


Inside lasagna roll-ups.

Pop them in the oven until the cheese inside gets all nice and bubbly. Forget the forks; just skewer each mini roll with a toothpick so your guests can dip away.


Dipping lasagna roll-ups into pizza sauce. Mmm.

This is how it's done.


The best part is that these can totally be made ahead of time and frozen until you need them. Rock your party with Mini Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups!
