Lasagna Roll-Ups (A new version!)

If you have been following my blog for any amount of time, you know that my go to dish is my lasagna roll ups. They are so delish and although they were meant to be a no meat meal - throwing in some beef to make my husband happy wasn't that hard to do! At my Nourishing Hearts class the other night, Lasagna Roll Ups were on the menu and these were a bit different from my original recipe, so I had to share... Especially after we tried them and they were also super good!! I love shaking things up a bit...

Lasagna Roll Ups (A new version!)
(recipe found at Nourishing Hearts)

8 dry lasagna noodles
1 beaten egg
1 carton (15 ounces) ricotta cheese
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 jar (26 ounces) prepared pasta sauce

Preheat oven to 375. Prepare 9x13 pan by coating with cooking spray and then adding 1/2 of the jar of pasta sauce to cover bottom. Cook lasagna noodles just until pliable for rolling. Drain noodles; rinse with cold water. In a separate mixing bowl stir together egg, ricotta cheese, spinach, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 3/4 cup of the parmesan cheese. Spread about 1/2 cup of the filling on each lasagna noodle and roll up. Place seam side down in prepared pan. Pour remaining sauce over top of roll ups and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Cover and freeze at this point if desired.

To prepare: allow to thaw completely. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 5-10 minutes more or until heated through. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving and sprinkle with remaining parmesan cheese.
