Spinach Rolls

Use your favorite spaghetti sauce with these rolls, whether it's homemade or store bought.  This makes alot of rolls, so it's perfect as an appetizer or as a buffet style entree.  We have made them for occasions like a Superbowl Party where everyone can help themselves.  Adjust all seasonings to taste.  Leftovers taste wonderful the next day, so plan to take some to work for lunch.


Cheese Filling:
16 oz container ricotta cheese
2 eggs
20-oz package frozen spinach, drained well
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1 cups mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 C. Spaghetti sauce
cooked lasagna noodles
Add ricotta cheese, cooked drained spinach, eggs, basil, pepper, and Parmesan in bowl and mix well.
Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sauce in bottom of 13 X 9 baking dish.
On workspace, lay one noodle flat. Spread noodle with a couple of tablespoons of the cheese mixture, spreading to 1/2 inch of far edge.  Roll up and place in baking dish seam side down.  Repeat.  Top with remaining spaghetti sauce.  Sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees covered with foil for 30 minutes.

Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes or until cheese is lightly brown.
