Turkey and Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups

Turkey was on sale this week so I decided to make lasagna roll ups.  Don't let the list of ingredients fool you.  Meat, pasta, cheese, sauce.  That is all you need.  I think that the entire prep to eat took less than an hour.

Turkey & Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups:

1 package of ground turkey
1 package of creamed spinach
2 cups tomato sauce
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
8-12 lasagna noodles, cooked until al dente
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion flakes
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Heat a skillet with a little bit of olive oil in the bottom.  While it is heating mix the ground turkey and all of the spices together.  Add the turkey to the skillet and brown.

In a bowl, mix together the spinach, 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, and the grated cheese.  Add the ground turkey after it has browned, drain the turkey if needed, and mix together.

Take the cooked lasagna noodles and cut them in half, short ways.  Take one of the noodle halves, spoon the mixture onto it, and roll the noodle around.


Place the rolled noodles into a baking dish that has 1/4 cup of tomato sauce on the bottom. 

When the pan is full top with the rest of the tomato sauce and sprinkle with more shredded cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the cheese on the top is nice and golden.
