This recipe is from The Dallas Morning News.

"Made this for dinner tonight and it was so good! My kids even ate it without complaining! I made some changes I add cream cheese to the filling and meat to the sauce. I didn't roll them individually either just stacked it like a regular lasagna"


12 Lasagna noodles
1 26-oz container Pasta sauce
2 cloves Garlic; minced
1 15-oz container Ricotta cheese
1 10-oz package Frozen chopped spinach; thawed, squeezed dry
1 3.5-oz container Prepared Pesto
1 Egg
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon Salt
Black Pepper; freshly ground
1 cup mozzarella cheese; Shredded

Original recipe makes 6



Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions; drain.

Preheat oven to 350. Spread 2 cups of the pasta sauce in the bottom of a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Combine garlic, ricotta, spinach, pesto, egg, Parmesan, salt and pepper to taste in a bowl.

Place lasagna noodle on a clean kitchen towel; spread 1/4 cup of the ricotta mixture on the noodle. Roll noodle up; place seam side down in pan. Repeat with remaining noodles.

Pour remaining pasta sauce over noodles; sprinkle with mozzarella. Cover with foil and bake 20 minutes. Uncover; cook until cheese is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes longer.

The prep directions were perfect making 12 beautiful lasagna rolls with the exact amount of filling needed. I had to cook it about 25 minutes longer than the recipe called for. It was good once I did this.

This is like any other lasagna recipe, just with pesto added. It was good, but don't think I will make it again.

Really good! I forgot to put the parmesan in the cheese/spinach mixture so I put it on the top. It still tasted great, but next time I'll have to remember to add the cheese.
