8 c. fresh spinach
10-12 uncooked lasagna noodles
3 c. marinara sauce
16 oz. whole milk ricotta
¾ c. shredded mozzarella
½ c. Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 large egg
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Cook spinach until it is wilted, about 2 minutes, and set aside to cool. Cook lasagna according to package directions and drain. Spoon 1 cup of marinara sauce into the bottom of a large baking dish.
When the spinach has cooled, mix together the spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, egg, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Lay out the dry noodles flat on a clean surface, such as wax paper on the counter. Spread the cheese and spinach mixture evenly over the noodles in a thin layer and roll up carefully. Then, place the roll ups seam-side down in the baking dish. Leave a little space between the roll ups. Pour the remaining marinara sauce over the roll ups and then top with mozzarella. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cheese melts.
