Four Cheese Spinach Lasagna Rolls

One of my favorite lasagnas is a spinach lasagna. I love spinach (almost as much as I love chocolate) and anytime I can add it to my meal, I am a happy person. What I like about lasagna rolls, is that you can perfectly portion out your meal. When I make lasagnas, they are usually big dishes that end up being frozen or eaten for a few days. Usually, that is not a problem and is often a good thing, on days when I am really busy and don’t have time to cook. However, cooking is a form of stress reliever and creative outlet for me and I enjoy my time in the kitchen. Plus, I am not a huge fan of leftovers. This recipe, makes 8 servings (4 if you have a big appetite) and can be scaled to smaller or larger amounts. There are many variations you can make, including the classic meat version. Enjoy!

  5. We call these lasagna roll ups. Pumpkin and I love them and eat them with spinach and cheese. Hubster prefers layered meat lasagna… good thing he gets out voted.

    • LOL! Yes, two against one! Hope Pumpkin is doing well and the same for you and your husband. (And your niece). I love how this blog allows me to become friends and get to know different people 🙂
