Spinach and Red Pepper Lasagna Roll Ups

Yesterday was a busy day, which is beginning to become the norm around here!  Busy days and busier nights is seems.  


Everyone wanted lasagna..I knew I had cheese, spinach and red peppers at home. 


I bought lasagna noodles that were flat and no boil.  When I got home I decided to make lasagna rollups instead of regular lasagna.  I heated water, not to a boil. Then added my noodles...I did them one at time.  Just because...well, just because I suppose.  Layered the filling and rolled them up.  Placed on top of sauce, put sauce on top and in the oven they went!   


Use what you have at home.  Any ground meat.  Any type of lasagna noodle.  Any small curd cheese, ricotta or cottage cheese.  Any peppers.  Any spaghetti sauce.  You get the idea.  <3  It will be delicious!

Spinach and Red Pepper Lasagna Roll Ups
Ingredients

Box of Lasagna Noodles, I used flat
Red Pepper, sliced very thin
Fresh Spinach, I bought a bag and only used a couple of handfuls 
2 cups Ricotta or Cottage Cheese, Make Your Qwn Ricotta Cheese
2 Eggs
8 oz Mozzarella Cheese, shredded, Make Your Own Mozzarella Cheese
1/4 - 1/2 cup Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground Garlic and Sea Salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground Italian Blend Seasoning
1 jar Tomato and Basil Spaghetti Sauce, we didn't have a lot a sauce left in our pan.  You can use two jars to have additional.  
1/2 lb (up to 1 lb if adding 2 jars) cooked Ground Turkey, I used turkey burgers I was cooking
Salt to taste for Turkey

Directions

Cook ground turkey until done.  Season with salt.
Add spaghetti sauce and simmer.

Filling

Mix 2 cups cottage, 2 eggs, 1/2 cups shredding mozzarella, 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt and 1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning.

Heat water, but do not boil.  Add noodles until they are pliable.  
NO LONGER THAN THAT. 
Take out and place on towels to dry off excess water.

Spread filling to cover inside of noodle, leaving space on all sides.  Do not overfill.
Layers spinach leaves, stopping before end of filling.  Top with 2-3 red pepper strips.  If peppers are too stiff to roll, drop them in the hot water to make pliable.
Roll.

Put half of sauce on the bottom of your pan.  
Top with lasagna rolls. Seam side down.
Put the rest of sauce on top.
Cover with foil.

Bake in Preheated oven 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly.
Top with remaining mozzarella cheese.
Return to oven to melt, uncovered, 3-5 minutes.

Let rest....Enjoy!  <3 and Hugs!
