I started Weight Watchers 3 weeks ago and I really needed to start cooking more. I have really been craving lasagna for awhile now, but it is definitely one of those foods that I binge on. I searched WW for some healthier alternatives and browsed through Pinterest. I decided to make my own version of a lasagna roll-up.
I must say, it turned out really great!
5 PP each roll-up, 12 servings
12 lasagna noodles, cooked
15oz. 2% cottage cheese
10oz. frozen spinach, dethawed and drained
1 1/2c. mushrooms, chopped
2c. marinara sauce
1c. mozzarella cheese
I had to use 1 13x9 and one 9x9 casserole dish. Spoon a little of the marinara sauce on the bottom of each dish to prevent sticking.
Cook lasagna noodles per package instructions.
While the noodles are cooking, preheat oven to 350.
In a bowl combine the cottage cheese and egg. Stir in drained spinach and chopped mushrooms.
When the noodles are done, drain them and rinse with cold water. Put down a sheet of parchment paper and lay down a noodle flat. Spoon in about 2 spoonfuls of the cheese mix on the front of the noodle. Roll noodle up and place in pan. Continue for the remaining 11 noodles and place in the dish. I had 8 in the 13x9 and 4 in the 9x9. Pour about 1/2c. of marinara sauce per 3 rolls to cover. Then top each roll with about 1 Tbsp. of mozzarella. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake an additional 10 minutes. Let cool about 15 minutes before eating.
