Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne Roll-Ups Serve Approx 4
So, Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne Roll-Ups are a much-loved creation of mine for all friends and family who have eaten them. It’s definitely a crowd-pleaser but let’s face it, when isn’t pasta an all-around hit?
Not to be mistaken with cannelloni, these are rolled up almost like a swiss roll, so you still get layers of pasta and sauce, just like eating a traditional lasagne. If you fancy serving up a lasagne with a twist that looks great, give this recipe a try!
- 1 batch of Pasta dough or 1 batch of Spinach pasta dough made into lasagne sheets or alternatively just use fresh store-bought lasagne sheets
- 500g fresh ricotta
- 250g frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and drained
- 1/4 cup parmesan +extra for sprinkling on top
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella +1 cup for sprinkling on top
- 700g Passata
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- basil leaves to serve
- Preheat oven to 180ºc and grease a large baking dish.
- In a medium bowl mix together the ricotta, spinach, garlic, parmesan, mozzarella and season with salt and pepper.
- Lay out your lasagne sheets and place about 2 tablespoons of ricotta filling onto each sheet and spread over then roll them up and place them in the baking dish.
- Pour the passata over the lasagne roll-ups and top with the extra cheese then lightly cover with foil and place into the oven for approximately 30 minutes.
- Uncover the foil and increase the heat to 200ºc and bake for a further 30 minutes or until cheese is all golden and bubbly.
- Once removed from the oven let it rest for about 15 minutes before garnishing with the basil leaves.
