Who loves lasagna?  WE DO!!  Ok, maybe the better question should be….who doesn’t love lasagna?  

However, as good as it is, lasagna can be a high calorie meal.  This recipe for Skinny Lasagna Roll Ups is simple to make, has built in portion control and A LOT less calories….AND still tastes great!

The meatless version is only about 225 calories per roll.  I added about 4 oz of 80/20 ground beef to my sauce, which only increased the calories per serving to about 250.  

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 9 lasagna noodles 
  • 10 oz frozen spinach – thawed and drained
  • 15 oz Light Ricotta Cheese
  • 1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups prepared spaghetti sauce (your favorite)
  • 9 Tablespoons part skin Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 4 oz lean ground beef – cooked and drained

Skinny Lasagna Roll ups

Preheat oven to 350

Boil noodles until done, about 10 minute (I used a large, deep skillet since I wasn’t boiling a lot of noodles)

*I added salt to the water when boiling the noodles (since they were really the only thing that needed it) then didn’t add any to the rest of the dish*

Remove noodles and drain on paper towels

In a medium bowl, combine Ricotta, Parmesan, spinach, egg, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper

*I added a sprinkle of pepper and no salt*

Top with remaining cup of spaghetti sauce

Place 1 Tbsp of Mozzarella cheese on top of each noodle.  

*Topping each roll with only a tablespoon of cheese really helps with the calories.  Usually, I just pile it on…which is great but adds a lot of calories.  I was very surprised at how “cheesy” this dish was despite cutting back on the cheese.  Placing each tbsp of cheese directly on top of each roll is key.*

Cover with foil and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted

*Make sure foil isn’t touching the food or the cheese will stick and you’ll lose all that yummy goodness when you remove it*
