Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna Rolls

The perfect spinach mushroom lasagna, rolled up into neat bundles. These are easy to plate and delicious to eat.

I love lasagna but I absolutely hate plating it. It’s sloppy when straight out of the oven, proving to be a nightmare to get a pretty and clean serving. It’s really not a big deal but let’s say you want a lasagna that is easier to serve to guests, something that’s not only easy to plate but a safe bet on pleasing the crowd? You want lasagna rolls.

With these you get all of the flavor that is desired, rolled up into a neat little package. Best of all, it is basically pre-portioned and you can create these with your favorite fillings. Whip up a batch for your meat loving friends and another dish for your vegetarian friends. The possibilities are endless.

I made two varieties of lasagna rolls. One was a traditional beef version and the other was loaded with sautéed spinach and baby bella mushrooms.

Yield: Makes 12 lasagna rolls.

Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna Rolls

The perfect spinach mushroom lasagna, rolled up into neat bundles. These are easy to plate and delicious to eat.

Ingredients:

4C baby bella mushroom slices, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 - 10 oz.bags baby spinach, chopped
1/4C olive oil
12 lasagna noodles
15 oz. Ricotta cheese
1 egg
1/3C Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper
1 jar tomato sauce
2-3C mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, cook lasagna noodles per the instructions on the box or to desired consistency.

Meanwhile, prepare your vegetables by chopping and mincing. Heat 2tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When your pan is hot, cook vegetables in two batches. Add a half of  the spinach, mushrooms and garlic to pan. Toss and cook until spinach is wilted. Transfer to a large bowl. Repeat with remaining vegetables and 2tbsp olive oil. Add to large bowl, sprinkle with salt and toss. Add additional salt and seasonings if desired.

In a medium bowl, combine egg, both varieties of cheese and pepper.

Drain pasta and let sit in cool water while you work. Remove one or two lasagna noodles, laying flat on your work surface. Cover with a thin coat of cheese mixture. Top off with a layer of spinach and mushrooms.

Roll and transfer to a rectangular baking dish. Repeat with remaining lasagna noodles.

Cover lasagna rolls with a coating of tomato sauce. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella.

Bake for 35 minutes. Serve warm.

    I hate plating it too..mine turns out really mushy and it’s like i just plopped it on the plate — yours actually turned out really well, for what it’s worth. i like the idea of the rollups better than the large lasagna! it’s easier and better to portion control it ;)

    this is the way we make our lasagna, too, for the same reasons – 1. because it’s neater to plate + 2. it’s easier to freeze, which is great for just the two of us. in fact, i have some of ‘em in the freezer right now! =)

    So pretty! Lasagna is always a hit with guests, but I sometimes hate it’s ugly plating appearance too. This is the perfect solution :)

    I’ve been seeing these around and keep forgetting to make them. They look amazing! I love that you can make different versions of lasagna for the same meal. I’ll definitely make these the next time we have vegetarians over. Everyone can get what they want and be happy. :)

    These turned out beautiful Rachel! I love making lasagna but we always have so much leftover and I really love the idea of these roll ups for an easy to freeze option. You could just warm up one for lunch if you wanted.

    I love lasagna roll ups. I can still get lasagna, but make a smaller amount, so we aren’t eating it for days! Great combination with spinach and mushrooms!

    I love lasagna just as much as the next person but I totally know what you mean about plating. It is an absolute mess. And it’s so hard to photograph them too!

    Now these rolls on the other hand are gorgeous. I love that they’re meatless too!

    Love this! You mentioned a meat version. I didn’t see it. Where should I be looking?

    • Rachel — June 10th, 2012 @ 4:56 pm

      A meat version would just be subbing in your favorite traditional lasagna filling in place of the spinach and mushrooms, but using the same technique as described within this post. As for what you could serve with these, a green salad and dinner rolls would be a nice fit or your other favorite side dishes to go along with pasta.
