Ricotta spinach roll-ups

Summer cook outs are fun but some days oven easy meals work too!  This particular dish you can easily put together the night before you are going to bake it.  All it takes is planning ahead and buying the ingredients which are:

1 lb.low skim or whole Ricotta 
1-cup 5 cheese blend shredded cheese or shredded mozzarella
1 egg
Pinch salt and pepper
1/2 cup chopped spinach cooked
1 box lasagna noodles (cooked according to directions)
2 quarts pasta sauce

I follow the instructions on the box for the lasagna noodles and when they are cooked I drain and rinse them in cold water, pat them slightly to absorb some moisture and spread the filling on each strip and roll and place onto casserole that you have already added some sauce to. Use Marinara sauce if you prefer meatless meal.

Top with remaining sauce and cheese and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes covered.  Remove cover and if necessary bake another 5 minutes.

This is an easy all in one meal that you can serve your family or take along to a party. They will definitely be a HIT!
