Spinach Lasagna Rolls




Perfectly portioned individual lasagnas. This is one of those family friendly recipes everyone in your home will love. A great way to get your kids to eat spinach too. I personally find one to be filling for me, served with a garden salad on the side. My husband can easily eat three.

Servings: 9 Serving Size: 1 roll Old Points: 4 pts Points+: 6 ww pts
Calories: 224.9 • Fat: 5.1 g Fiber: 3.4 g Protein: 13.0 g Carbs: 31.5

Ingredients:
  • 9 lasagna noodles, cooked
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and completely drained
  • 15 oz fat free ricotta cheese (I like Polly-o)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • 32 oz tomato sauce
  • 9 tbsp (about 3 oz) part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350°. Combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan, egg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Ladle about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking dish.

    Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and lay out lasagna noodles. Make sure noodles are dry. Take 1/3 cup of ricotta mixture and spread evenly over noodle. Roll carefully and place seam side down onto the baking dish. Repeat with remaining noodles.

    Ladle sauce over the noodles in the baking dish and top each one with 1 tbsp mozzarella cheese. Put foil over baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, or until cheese melts. Makes 9 rolls.

    To serve, ladle a little sauce on the plate and top with lasagna roll.

    2. Wow! Only four points for that. I will be making this for sure!

    3. Yum! These will probably be on next week's menu. I *love* spinach lasagna anyway, but this sounds like a fun way to serve it. Thanks for another great recipe.

      I made the chicken ropa vieja this week just so I could make a burrito bowl. Y-U-M! Your tasty, normal-food recipes have played a significant roll in my weight-loss of just under 30 pounds in 13 week. Thank you!

    4. I make these all the time ~ they are great! Love this site, such great recipes! Thanks for sharing!

    5. Gina, your recipes are amazing. Thank you for sharing! Parmesan cheese is a little tricky to measure, depending on how fine it is grated, packed, etc...can you estimate how many ounces are in the half cup you used to compute the points?

      ReplyDelete
    6. This looks amazing! I made your mushroom risotto 2 nights ago and it was a HUGE hit! thank you =o)

    7. Hi Gina-

      This looks amazing! My husband and I are doing weight watchers, but I am also very carb conscience. Do you know how many carbs are in this recipe? How can I find the carb counts for your other recipes?

      I love this website and all the recipes! The pictures are amazing! Thank you

    8. Would this work with fresh spinach? I'm not a huge fan of the frozen spinach but LOVE fresh spinach. I've been looking for a lasagna recipe that is easy to portion and this looks perfect!

      ReplyDelete
    9. @Kris, that's wonerful!

      1/2 cup Parmesan cheese is about 2.15 oz.

      @Liz- you're welcome :)

      ReplyDelete
    10. @Katie- Thank you! No, I don't do carb counts but you can probably plug in the ingredients in a site like Spark Recipes to get that info. I'm not sure if they sell low carb lasagna pasta. If they don't they should!

      @Jessie- LOL Guess we both had the same thing on our minds. :)

      @Jess- Fresh Spinach would be great! Fresh is always best in my opinion.

      ReplyDelete
    11. Every one of your recipes that I have tried have been delicious. Even my husband who does not need to lose weight enjoys them. I would like to try this lasagna recipe but I really prefer fresh spinach over frozen. Will this still work?

      ReplyDelete
    12. What a great recipe. Thanks for sharing! I would love to try with whole wheat noodles.

      ReplyDelete
    13. Shame on lazy me, but would this work with a lo-cal jar spag sauce?

      ReplyDelete
    14. those look absolutely amazing...can't wait to try them out!! :)

      ReplyDelete
    15. These sound delicious, gonna try them tonight. Thanks again Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    16. Wow, what a great idea. One question though, why 9 and not 10 or 8? It looks like it would fit better in the pan if they were an even number.

      ReplyDelete
    17. Gina, I have tried several of your recipes now. Thank you! It makes being on WW a bit easier, and tastier!

      ReplyDelete
    18. @Katrina- Great question! Because the spinach filling makes 9 1/3 cup portions.

      Fresh spinach would be great! You would have to cook it first.

      Jar sauce works too, but homemade is so much better!!

      Glad you all are enjoying my recipes, thanks for commenting :)

      ReplyDelete
    19. It looks amazing and the recipe sounds so good. I must try this for dinner this week.

      ReplyDelete
    20. Thanks for all your great ideas, Gina!
      I wonder how the point count would change by using egg beaters instead of the egg? Also, the other cheeses are available in lower-fat options. ♥

      ReplyDelete
    21. Just found this site via a friend this week. Last night on a whim I decided I would make not one but THREE recipes from your site..They were all a hit! I made the lasagna rolls, the Pork Chops with Dijon and the roasted califlower. Looking forward to getting back on WW track and using these recipes to help me reach my goal.. Keep the recipes coming..

      ReplyDelete
    22. Great recipe. I am always in the mood for Italian:)

      ReplyDelete
    23. @Nancy- Made a mistake, was supposed to be fat free ricotta. I hope this didn't hurt anyone who made it. I'm changing it now.

      Eggbraters really won't effect the points, it's 1 egg for 9 rolls. You won't even see a point difference but you can still use it if you wish.

      @Alex- Wow, all in one night! :)

      ReplyDelete
    24. I love these, I've had this recipe for years, we use cottage cheese instead but I've come to realize there is little difference between the two. I also cut mine in half, and put the "flower" sides up, just because they cook faster and it's then looked at as "2" per serving.
      I love your blog by the way :D

      ReplyDelete
    25. I made this recipe last night and it was a hit with my roommates and me! So simple and easy to make after a long day a work. The only issue I had was that it took longer to cook than expected. The cheese just wouldn't melt! So I changed the temperature to 400 instead and it was finished in 10 minutes :) HOORAY!

      I also made the apricot banana pastry which is amazing!

      ReplyDelete
    26. @Hippie family - Cute idea cutting it in half.

      @talltina- Cooking time varies depending on your oven, glad you liked it! The apricot banana pastry too!

      ReplyDelete
    27. thanks for this recipe! sounds like such a great 'comfort' food !

      ReplyDelete
    28. This recipe I loved it. I made it tonight and we loved it. Even my picky eater that does not like spinach ate it. I am now taking some to my friend that follows your site as well. We just love your site. I have lost 27lbs and let me say by watching what I eat but for dinner they have all been from your site. I can't say thank you enough for making these wonderful recipes. keep them coming and I will keep on logging on.

    29. Good for you! That's great!! These are so family friendly, thanks for leaving a comment.

      ReplyDelete
    30. I made these last night for dinner. They were sooooo good. Its so hard to believe that something this good is low calorie/points. I'm eating the leftovers for lunch today and they are even better. Thanks so much for another great recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    31. Yes, makes great leftovers!

      ReplyDelete
    32. I made these for dinner last night...and WOW! They were soooo good! My husband loved them, my 3 year old enjoyed her portion, and my 15 month old ate almost an entire roll. :) So, needless to say, this recipe will be added to my personal "cookbook" of recipes we enjoy. Thanks so much for sharing! And like Stephanie said, it's hard to believe that something that delicious was low calorie/points. Even better!

    33. Gina,

      I'm trying this recipe right now and can't wait! I just realized that I use at least one of your recipes every single week {for the past year} and have never left a comment. I wanted you to know that I have LOVED every single recipe I've tried of yours. You are my go-to recipe girl. I know I can count on your recipes being delicious. I also love the points thing too. I am always sending friends and family to this site.

      I just wanted to say thank you. You are extremely talented. Keep the amazing recipes coming!

      Do you think it would be ok to freeze half of the batch once cooked? I don't think I would be able to eat it all before it would go bad. It looks so good and I can't wait to make it!

      ReplyDelete
    35. oh wow! this look ssoooo good!

      ReplyDelete
    36. @Brittany- Thank you!!!

      Sure, I'm sure it will freeze ok after it's cooked.

      ReplyDelete
    37. Has anyone tried this with a meat? I'm wondering how it might be that way!

      ReplyDelete
    38. @Sarah- It would be awesome with meat!

      ReplyDelete
    39. I love your recipes!!! I was wondering what the fat and fiber is on this one, in case I splurge and eat 2 servings. (I know the points may change once doubling a serving) Thank you, and can't wait to keep trying more recipes. It makes losing weight so YUMMY! :)

      ReplyDelete
    40. I really enjoyed this recipe. I have made it twice now, and the second time I used your roasted red pepper soup as the sauce instead of regular tomato sauce, just to give it a sweeter kick and I think it was delicious. I really love your recipes and look forward to new ones in my email each day = )! Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    41. I don't have the fiber and fat content handy but 2 rolls = 8 pts.

      ReplyDelete
    42. @SEB - Nice idea! Thanks for sharing with us :)

      ReplyDelete
    43. I made this for the first time today and ate some for lunch. It was so good. I did use jarred sauce, but next time I want to try your tomato sauce. Thanks for the great recipes!

      ReplyDelete
    44. Make these for dinner. SUPER yummy. I served them with your Turkey Cutlets (used chicken breast). Thanks!

    45. i'm so excited for the leftovers of lasagna i made for the next week :3

      ReplyDelete
    46. I made this tonight for my mother-in-law-to-be and fiance and it was delicious!!!! They had no idea it was so WW friendly!

      ReplyDelete
    47. Gina - made these tonight and they were DELICIOUS! Your blog is amazing, best resource on the web for WW recipes. Thanks for all you do!

      ReplyDelete
    48. I don't ever think you can get too many compliments... so here's another for you, Gina. This was a great recipe! I made it exactly as you described, and next week I'm going to try it with some whole wheat lasagna noodles I just found at the grocery store.

      It's great for a meatless dinner night. Highly recommend it!

      ReplyDelete
    49. Whole wheat lasagna, what a great find!! I wish ronzoni smart taste would make lasagna noodles!

      ReplyDelete
    50. I had these last night for dinner. I made them the afternoon before and they kept nicely in the refrigerator. SUPER easy to make and SUPER delicious. I was very skeptical about the FF ricotta cheese. As any Italian knows, FF ricotta is like...blasphemous. It was very good, and the whole family enjoyed every last roll. I will definitely be making them again soon! =)

      ReplyDelete
    51. Glad you liked them! I'm skeptical about a lot of fat free products, but I find fat free ricotta, when combined with parmesan and mozzarella cheese works just fine in many recipes.

      ReplyDelete
    52. I made these tonight and they were AWESOME! I love this recipe and will definitely make it again!! Thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    53. I made this tonight and it was delicious!! Thank you Gina for your wonderful recipes!! This is another one of your recipes I will be making again! :)

      ReplyDelete
    54. I made this a few weeks ago and it was a hit! Everyone enjoyed and I even had requests for it to be made again. Can't believe it's only 4 points!

      ReplyDelete
    55. Made this today it was GREAT!!

      ReplyDelete
    56. I love this website!!!! I will be making this for dinner tomorrow!! Thanks again Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    57. These were terrific. I made them for dinner today...they were easy to do and with a side salad it was a wonderful meal, plus I have leftovers for another meal this week. Thanks Gina, for your website. It is wonderful!

      ReplyDelete
    58. I made this with whole wheat lasagna noodles, and it turned out great. I know that cuts down the points some; do you know how many?

      ReplyDelete
    59. Made this last night... Spectacular! I added a ground turkey to the sauce to add some sustenance for my meat craving boyfriend...

      Another wonderful experience with skinnytaste!

      ReplyDelete
    60. Gina- you totally knocked this one out of the park! I made it last night and it was ahhhhmazing!!!! The presentation alone was gorgeous! I didn't have enough sauce so I added some diced tomatoes I had in the pantry (which didn't add any points) and a tablespoon of Italian Seasoning. We love love love lasagna in my home but unfortunately my secret recipe is not very WW friendly. This recipe is just as good as my traditional lasagna! we didn't even miss all of the fatty sausage and cheese. Absolutely fantastic like all of your recipes, Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    61. Glad you liked it!!
      I'm not sure what the point difference is with whole wheat noodles, I would check the boxes of both to see what the difference is. It should be at least 1 point less per serving if not more.

      ReplyDelete
    62. I made these last night and my daughter and I devoured them. They were wonderful! I am really enjoying this website thank you so much for sharing.

      ReplyDelete
    63. A WW buddy just introduced me to your site today and I love it - I can't wait to get home and start cooking! I can't decide which recipe to start with, but I think I will start with this lasagna recipe! Has anyone tried it with chopped broccoli in with the spinach - to make it more like a veggie lasagna? Anyway, great site!!!

    64. I am new to WW and new to your site...you have made this weight loss endeavor completely painless for me, and you have no idea how much I appreciate it!! I made these tonight and my whole family loved them, even my 5 year old! Thanks for all the great recipes...I can't wait to eat the leftovers!!

      ReplyDelete
    65. Cyndi- Never tried it with broccoli but a veggie lasagna! How bad could it be??

      ReplyDelete
    66. made this tonight, i served myself two with a side salad thinking that would fill me up, i was full after 1 roll and so was my husband, we were surpised how filling this was for four points!

      ReplyDelete
    67. They are filling. One is perfect with a salad. Thanks for sharing!

      ReplyDelete
    68. Made this on Sunday for a group of 4 and it was a hit. I used fresh baby spinach instead of frozen. My only complaint was that they were a bit dry. Any solutions?

      ReplyDelete
    69. Just made these for dinner tonight. Wonderful! Luv your web-site too!

      ReplyDelete
    70. @Carolyn, they were dry? Did you cover them with foil? Maybe bak them for less time, you could always add more sauce.

      ReplyDelete
    71. Gina, this was the first WW recipe I cooked and I was blown away! Since I plan for a larger meal at dinner time, I had 2 rolls and I was stuffed! Rather than using canned tomato sauce, though, I made my Sicilian great-grandmother's famous recipe for tomato sauce (oregano, basil, bay leaves, and cloves - no added points) and it gave it a flavor boost! Your recipes have made it so easy to stick to WW -super tasty and filling! Thank you!!

      ReplyDelete
    72. Gina, I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and have been obsessed ever since. I've tried about a dozen recipes and LOVED everyone of them. Non-weight watching boyfriend approves too:) I'm spreading the word! THANK YOU!!

      ReplyDelete
    73. @Emmy- Nothing like Grandmas sauce. Glad you liked them. They are filling.

      @Alexis- Love when non-ww boyfriends approve. That means I'm doing something right!

      ReplyDelete
    74. These were great! I don't do Weight Watchers, but I always like looking at your recipes for healthier version and all of my coworkers were eying this when I brought it for lunch.

      ReplyDelete
    75. Thank you so much! I love love love lasagna, but I'm trying to fit into my college jeans again. Thanks to you, I can finally have both!

      ReplyDelete
    76. Thanks! If you're looking to eat light, this is the place. No need to be in ww, the points are just a bonus!

      ReplyDelete
    77. I made these last night for the second time and once again they came out delicious! I can't thank you enough for this website. I am starting my fourth week on Weight Watchers and your recipes have made it so much easier and more fun than I ever expected. Thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    78. I started these (including boiling the water) and realized I didn't have any lasagna noodles. So I made them with jumbo shells. There are in the oven.....I'm sure they will be great!!!

      ReplyDelete
    79. They're in the oven right now...smell so good..Can't wait...can't wait..can't wait....

      This recipe is fantastic!! I told my husband that I would serve this at a dinner party and simply add a tossed salad and garlic bread to complete the meal! Delish!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    82. I loved these lasagna rolls! My husband is not a fan of lasagna but loved how these taste :)

      ReplyDelete
    83. Not a fan of lasagna! I didn't think that was possible!

      ReplyDelete
    84. I made this tonight for Father's Day and it was such a hit! I used your bolognese sauce instead of plain tomato (lots of meat lovers here!). Great recipes!

      ReplyDelete
    85. @Morgan- I'm sure these were amazing with Bolognese!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    86. SO GOOD...my boyfriend, who is used to heavy italian food even loved this! Thanks so much for sharing all your recipes!!

      ReplyDelete
    87. Gina, another hit recipe for my family. My husband loved it, my parents said it was delicious and my 2 yr old devoured his...wow! I love your site...thanks so much!
      By the way, I had to use jar sauce cuz I didn't have time to make the good stuff. :)

      ReplyDelete
    88. Really loved this meal.

      When I calculated the points i totaled 5, how did you get to 4?

      ReplyDelete
    89. @Leni- Hmm, not sure, let me recalculate. Maybe I made a mistake. I'm surprised no one's mentioned that 'til now.

      ReplyDelete
    90. Just recalculated and still got 4 pts, could be maybe different brands of pasta or cheese may change the points slightly. Calories 224.9, Fat 5.1, Fiber, 3.4.

      I made these on Sunday! Big hit with my family. So glad I found your site. Have lost three lbs. in the last week and three of those days were your recipes.
      Thanks! I am loving cooking low cal.

      ReplyDelete
    92. Very good! I did add a little bit of onion to the mixture. My 5 year old even gobbled it up and asked for seconds! Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    93. Made these for a hostess party last night. I also made your Basil Green Goddness dressing to serve with a side salad and it was loved! Thanks for your recipes...they allow me to still have my "diet food scared" friends over for dinner.

      ReplyDelete
    94. This is my favorite. Not only are they yummy and low in points but they look so pretty!!! It is actually a great dish to take to a pot luck since they are individual portions and easy to serve. I am also wanting to know if they freeze well.

      ReplyDelete
    95. Good question, I'm not sure! If anyone has frozen this, please let me know.

      ReplyDelete
    96. Gina! Just wanted to thank you for all of your amazing recipes! I love them....they have all been so good and so much fun to make! I have a quick question about this one: I can't find fat free ricotta cheese (I just checked two different stores in my area). I did find low fat ricotta cheese....which has about the same calories (50) but 2 grams of fat. Do yo u have any idea how that would change the point total for one spinach roll? I was thinking I'd just add one point, but am not completely sure. Thanks for your help and for the great recipes!!

      ReplyDelete
    97. Oops!! Sorry I didn't realize that you had all the nutritional info posted at the top! I just added 2 grams of fat and the points did come out to 5. Sorry for the silly question and thanks again! ;-)

      ReplyDelete
    98. I made this tonight and it was amazing!! My family loved it! I also added baby mushrooms into the mixture which added even more taste! Thank you for the recipe! I also made the white bean turkey chili and added stewed tomatoes. Another great recipe!! Your recipes make WW so much easier!!

      ReplyDelete
    99. I made this tonight and LOVE it. I had to use part skim ricotta so mine are a little more a serving. I love this one! The kids even loved their own "mini lasagnas"

      ReplyDelete
    100. Thank you so much for your recipes Gina. I just found this website and made these last week and me and my partner loved them! We are "three for three" for your recipes now and I can't wait to try others. The mushroom risotto was also so delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    101. Love the idea of adding sauteed mushrooms, I'll do that next time I make them!

      ReplyDelete
    102. These were sooo good!!! Can't wait to make them again!!! I am wondering, do you think these would freeze well? Should I freeze them before or after baking?

      ReplyDelete
    103. This... was... amazing. Both times. LOL Made it the first time exactly per your recipe. Made it again tonight but added ground turkey (browned with onion and some Herbes De Provence), cut the ricotta in half (low fat instead of fat free), used about 2/3rds of the spinach, and jarred sauce (we have a favorite). Ended up being enough for 12 whole wheat noodles.

      This is why I love your site and your recipes... they're awesome "as is," and easily customized as well to fit personal tastes. You just have no idea how much easier you make it for us to stay "on plan" with Weight Watchers. Thanks so much!!

      ReplyDelete
    104. i made this last night for my family, had to make a few substitutes because of lack of ingredients, they LOVED it!! my husband said to me
      " thank for cooking healthy for our family" thanks to you Gina for making it so easy and yummy! Joanna

      ReplyDelete
    105. This was wonderful! I made it last night and my kids ate it!! Since I found this blog, my kids have eaten veggies they would have turned down before. Thanks for the wonderful ideas!

      ReplyDelete
    106. Jenn, I would freeze them before baking, I have not tried it so let me know if anyone has success freezing them!

      Thanks Wings, everything is easily customized to suit your taste, that's part of the fun in cooking!

      I'm happy to get your kids to start eating veggies! Just hide it in their favorite meals, they'll never know.

    108. I made this recipe today and it was a HUGE HIT! I used whole wheat lasagna noodles as well (by Ronzoni) and they were delicious. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes! I am having fun going through and choosing a new recipe to try each week. Keep 'em coming! :)

      ReplyDelete
    109. I made this last night for my hubby and I for our date night and they were delicious! I did add some ground beef (the supermarket didn't have turkey) and they were delicious! I even took leftovers for lunch today and they were great! Thank you for having great ideas that even my picky husband will eat! :)

    110. Wooooow this looks sooo good!!!!!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    111. Hello Gina,

      I make these a lot and am a current WW member. I plugged in the info and came up with a Points+ value of 6.

      I figured I'd leave this note since you are in the middle of converting all the recipes!

    114. Made this tonight and my family LOVED it! Hubby wanted to know what the back up was when he heard what we were having...needed no back up, he had seconds!!! Thanks for a great recipe that we will be adding to our favorites!

    115. I made this last night, and it was amazing!!! Love it! I froze all the leftovers and can't wait to have them;)

      ReplyDelete
    116. This was one of the 4 recipes I made this weekend for guinnea pigs...um...I mean guests! They all loved it, despite the fact that I used jarred sauce. I doubled the recipe and cooked one batch. I put the other rollups in the freezer to freeze then removed them and packaged them. Voila, a really easy dinner for a weeknight. Thanks so much!

      ReplyDelete
    117. Wow! This one rocks! I have made many of your recipes but I do believe this one has just turned into our favorite. While eating I told my husband I was definately having another one. However, one filled me up so I didn't make it to the second one. lol Thanks for another great new recipe to add to our 'regulars'! You have made cooking fun again!

    118. Donna you are funny! These are great leftovers!

      And juwster, they are more filling than they look, aren't they!

    120. and also, whoops, i totally missed that "tomato sauce" was a link to a separate recipe. had i seen this, i would have just used jarred spaghetti sauce. instead i used canned "tomato sauce" so it may not have as much flavor... whoops! ooh well, i'll still devour it, i'm sure!

      ReplyDelete
    121. whoops my other comment never showed. my "and also" just kind of came out of nowhere then. haha. what i had tried to say before that post was:

      i used FF mozzarella and whole wheat (ronzoni healthy harvest) noodles, and when i calculated it with those two changes, i came up with 4 pts plus?! could it be possible?! i ran with it, and ate two of them for 8. served with a side salad and FF thousand island dressing. YUMMY! hubby thoroughly enjoyed them, as well. he had 3. YUMMY!!

      ReplyDelete
    122. Ok, weird, never mind... not sure what happened, but for some reason now my recipe tracker is showing it at 6 pts. most bizarre!!!

      ReplyDelete
    123. I remember Giada making this on her cooking show, but before WW changed, I calculated the points to 15-for 1 roll! Way, too much for my taste. It's nice to see something I can splurge on.

    124. Delicious! My fiance doesn't like spinach, so I had to find a way to make some with and some without. I ended up making four of them with just cheese, and then adding the spinach for the last five rolls. Mine are super spinachy, but that's fine by me. Thanks for a great recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    125. Im sure they were great with all that spinach!

    126. I tried this last night, and it was so good! And, so much easier than regular meat lasagna! I took a shortcut and used a jar of tomato basil sauce (I found a good one that was only 5 points for the entire jar). Both me and my hubby loved it. Thanks so much, and keep the yummy recipes coming!

      ReplyDelete
    127. Totally yummy! I used whole wheat lasagna noodles and added garlic paste and crushed hot pepper flakes in the mix. Had 2 pieces for dinner...very filling AND only 12 pts for dinner. I usually eat a salad the nite before my morning weigh in, but i still managed to lose 1/2 lb after having this the nite before. Great recipe. Can't wait to try more from this site!

    128. Great! What brand of whole wheat lasagna did you use?

      ReplyDelete
    129. Hi gina!

      Just found this--looks great. Do you happen to know how many calories are in the lasagna noodles alone? I see 2 oz is 210 calories, but is just a normal piece 105? Thanks for your help!

      ReplyDelete
    130. Not offhand, you'd have to weigh it to see.

      ReplyDelete
    131. Love these! I have made them many times. I like to add garlic powder to the cheese mixture and use whole wheat noodles to get some more fiber. Your blog is fabulous. I can't pick a favorite recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    132. Made these for dinner tonight and added some minced garlic to the ricotta mixture. Delicious! These were a huge hit with my family. Keep up the great work!

    133. I made these tonight. One batch just as the recipe says, and another with turkey sausage. (which I am sure raises the points a little) and BOTH were awesome! I made one pan of 6 and one pan of 8 using a double of the recipe, and there are 2 left! SO good.

      ReplyDelete
    134. Can you use the precooked lasagna noodles for this receipe?

      ReplyDelete
    135. No, you want them soft when you roll them.

      ReplyDelete
    136. This recipe sounds great! I'm making it tonight, but instead of spinach, I plan to use swiss chard since I have a ton of it in my freezer from last summer's garden. Also adding minced garlic and onion to the filling mix.
      Thank you Gina, your recipes are fantastic! :)

    137. i made these tonight. they were delicious!!!dd asked if i could make this regularly. thanks again.

      ReplyDelete
    138. Wow! What a very tasty recipe. I really enjoyed it and it was very easy to make. This will definitely be a keeper!! Thanks Gina!!

      ReplyDelete
    139. I made these last night. My husband and I both approve of this easy recipe. I had some leftover artichokes so I chopped them up and threw them in with the cheese mixture and it was delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    140. Made these tonight and OMG I am in love!

      I added chopped onions, minced garlic and mushrooms to the mix as well and used a low point spaghetti sauce as I was out of tomato sauce.

      I am already excited to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

      ReplyDelete
    141. I just love this website! I made these and they were amazing..the whole family liked them! Thank you so much for putting this site together! : )

    142. I added balsamic glazed onions and a touch of garlic salt to the spinach mix. Oh my, oh my Soooooooo delicious.

    143. Hi Gina!
      Love your website and it is my go-to for new and exciting recipes to add to my routine.
      This recipe was just incredible...I made my own tomato sauce for it which made it even better.
      This recipe was so rich and delicious I couldn't even believe I made it myself! Thanks so much.
      Here is a picture of how it turned out...my presentation of it does not do it justice lol- oh and I had a nice big slice of italian garlic bread (I had a lot of points to burn).

      It was so filling too!

    146. These look delicious! I made Turkey Lasagna Bowls this weekend and posted them today. (I posted recipe as beef, but I used turkey this time)....I used 2% mozzarella and part skim ricotta etc. It was really great and in a smaller portion "bowl".

      ReplyDelete
    147. made these tonight with whole wheat lasagna, fresh spinach and zucchini! yummy!!

      ReplyDelete
    148. This was amazing! Can't tell you how hard it was not to have two servings of it tonight at dinner!! Can't wait for leftovers tomorrow, and I hate leftovers! You're recipes are really amazing and helping me so much on my weight loss journey! Thank you Gina!!

      ReplyDelete
    149. Gina, thanks so much for this recipe! This was the first of your recipes that I tried. I made this the other night for my boyfriend and I, we both loved it so much we had seconds (whoops) and then ate the leftovers for dinner two nights later! I posted about this recipe (with a picture) on my blog (found here: http://thisisxmelissa.tumblr.com/day/2011/03/27)

      Thanks again! Can't wait to make more of your recipes!

    150. Delicious recipe! I made it tonight and almost went back for seconds. I love that it is already portioned controlled. Genius. Thank you so much for this wonderful blog.

      ReplyDelete
    151. We really liked this recipe, but somehow we came up short when it came to the cheese mixture. We used 1/3 cup to measure, but only ended up with 7. Where did we go wrong?

      ReplyDelete
    152. Made this last night and it was a HUGE hit. Really had to stretch to get 9 rolls so I think next time I'll double the cheese and spinach and use the whole box of lasagna noodles, and there will definitely be a next time :)

      ReplyDelete
    153. So good!!!! I've made it twice now and everybody loved, even my very picky brother in law! The second time I added italian seasoned ground turkey for the men that bawk over a vegetarian meal and it still was delish!

      ReplyDelete
    154. I have a question about the actual lasagna noodles. I have never made lasagna & seems like the noodles are too skinny to put anything on them. Is there a certain noodle I'm supposed to use? Thanks

      ReplyDelete
    155. Lasagna noodles should be wide enough, they are usually about 2" wide. You can spread it along On side then roll.

      ReplyDelete
    156. Just made these for dinner and OH MY GOSH! So very yummy! I live by myself but I made the whole recipe so I could have leftovers for the next few meals! :)

      ReplyDelete
    157. AMAZING!! I had these for dinner they were so good. Everybody loved them thanks so much for your recipes I love your site!!!

    158. Made these for dinner last night, and they were A-W-E-S-O-M-E ! ! ! Thanks!! Can't wait to try some more of your recipes.

    159. I've made the lasagna spinach couple weeks ago and it was a big hit, like all your recipes.
      Absolut fantastic. I have the IPad sitting in my kitchen and everyday I check your website for what I am going to cook:)) My family loves you too. Will make the spinach lasagna tonight for guest.

      ReplyDelete
    160. Made this recipe last night and LOVED it. However, I made 12 roll-ups instead of the 9 that the recipe calls for. Then, I noticed that the photo at the top of the page also has twelve roll-ups too. Twelve fit in the 9x13 pan perfectly. Is the recipe supposed to be for 12 or 9?

      ReplyDelete
    161. great recipe! I used jarred sauce and added some mushrooms. I froze most of it for leftovers.

      ReplyDelete
    162. These were sooo good. I followed the recipe exactly (for the most part. I don't measure anything, just eyeball it.) but I added a little minced garlic. Served with a salad and garlic bread. I could only eat one bc they were so filling. I'm glad to know they are pretty healthy too. I'm not on WW and have no idea about the points, but I've always been a pretty healthy eater. I love your website because we have the same style of cooking. You give me the best ideas when I can't figure out what to cook for dinner. Thanks!

    163. Gina, for real. I'm in love with this recipe, and this site in general. Amazing.

    165. I made three of your recipes tonight: lasagna rolls, pina colada cupcakes, and cuban mojitos! All were fabulous. Love love love this site.

      ReplyDelete
    166. these are amazingly rich and delicious. I might even add less ricotta next time to lighten them up a bit (not calorically, but taste-wise). REALLY good and one would never know they are good for you! thanks so much. I adore your site.

      ReplyDelete
    167. Hi, I love this recipe of yours.Its tasty and portioning is easy too.I have a question regarding the noodles though.I use the durum wheat lasagna noodles.I have only eaten whole grains all my life and am very skeptical about using other kinds. I tried, but I could not find whole wheat lasagna. dOes it make a difference points wise or health wise?

      ReplyDelete
    168. Hi, Gina: I have been waiting and waiting to try some of these recipes (I'm a teacher and had no time to cook a little more elaborately until school ended). I'm making the lasagna rolls right now!!; I sauteed some mushrooms and zucchini to add to the mix (chopped them pretty small in the cuisinart and then threw them in the ricotta mixture). I know this will be a great dish, and I look forward to trying more! I also wanted to say how impressed and appreciative I am that you respond to everyone's questions and comments. You are not only a genius chef, but a very generous person! Thanks for this site!!

      ReplyDelete
    169. Loved this! My husband always talks about how his mom's lasagna was the best and how he misses it! Now I have a lasagna recipe that he loves just as much!!!

      ReplyDelete
    170. Priya- It's fine, I didn't use whole wheat either here.

      Glad you all liked these :)

      ReplyDelete
    171. I made these a while back and froze the leftovers. Should I thaw them out and stick them in the oven? Should I put them in the oven frozen? What temp and how long should I bake them? Thought they were great the first time and am looking forward to having them again!

      ReplyDelete
    172. I think you'd be ok putting them in frozen at 350° and just keep an eye on them till they are hot.

      ReplyDelete
    173. Just made this recipe tonight and it was excellent. I saw a comment from a while back asking about whole wheat noodles... well, I tried it that way and I'll be using regular lasagna noodles next time. These were dry and not ideal for shaping the rolls (edges tore on some). Loved the combination of flavors in the filling and the concept as a whole!

      ReplyDelete
    174. These are in regular rotation in my house. YUM!!! I use whole wheat noodles and they are delicious. I also use a low fat/low sodium sauce form Trader Joe's to which I add ground turkey for some lean protein. Sooo filling and good as a leftover as well! Thanks again Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    175. Is there any specific reason that frozen spinach is used in many of your recipes? I recently took a course in Organic chemistry and my professor advised us not to consume frozen spinach because oxalates are released which can contribute to the formation of cancer. This COULD just be speculation but I am always cautious to avoid frozen spinach now.

      ReplyDelete
    176. These are absolutely wonderful! Great recipe...thanks for sharing! I just love this website!

      ReplyDelete
    177. Great recipe! Just made this for dinner tonight and my husband gobbled them up. I am still amazed at how he seems to love every one of your recipes even though he claims to detest diet food. LOL. I was a bit lazy and used jarred tomato sauce b/c I was tired after a long day at work. Tasted great but will need to try with homemade sauce next time.

      ReplyDelete
    178. Just made these for dinner tonight and they were awesome. Great recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    179. Gina,

      The lasagna rolls are delicious! Thanks so much! We accidentally put the mozzarella inside the rolls (instead of on top) and it turned out awesome!!

      ReplyDelete
    180. What happens if you use wheat noodles? Does it change the points?

      ReplyDelete
    181. Can you freeze unbaked rolls and then pop'em in the oven whenever you want some, or would it be best to bake all of them and then freeze? I only cook for two and 9-12 Rolls will obviously go to waste. Thanks so much for all your fab recipes...I've had multiple, tonight will be the first time I try the Lasagna Rolls and so excited!

      ReplyDelete
    182. Esther- wheat noodles does not change the points. But use them if you like them, they are better for you!

      I think I would bake it, then divide it into smaller portions and freeze.

      ReplyDelete
    183. These sound sooooo good, who doesnt love lasagne noodles stuffed.....wonder how many points using skim ricotta .....i have never used fat free...how is it??? thanks for all your faboulous recipes.

      ReplyDelete
    184. Wow! Loved these! I used gluten free rice noodles and it came out amazing. I am really loving this site!!

      ReplyDelete
    185. Great recipe Gina! I tried this the other night and it was a huge hit so I had to feature it on my blog. http://east9thstreet.com/2011/09/15/spinach-lasagna-rolls/

      ReplyDelete
    186. I was wondering what kind of parmesan cheese you used? The pre-grated stuff you can buy in the Deli (the grainy powder stuff) or do you buy a chunk of parmesan and grate it? We tend to buy a chunk of parmesan and use a small grater and make tiny shreds. Would it matter much in the recipe for points value? Would you use the same or less using the fresh grated parmesan? Thank you.

      ReplyDelete
    187. Yummy, yummy, yummy! I prepared this tonight and it was wonderful! The only change I made to it was a threw some fresh chopped basil in the filling and sprinkled some on top as well! Will definitely make again. Thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    188. I actually swapped out the Lasagna for the Large Shells and it was awesome. I've been looking for Whole wheat shells so if anyone has an idea on stores in California that sell them please let me know.

      ReplyDelete
    189. We have had these a bunch of times at our house. I don't ever want to make regular lasagna again. I'm not sure if it was me or not, but I put the 9 rolls in a 9x9 pan and when I did that there was no way I was going to use 32 oz of sauce. I only used 16 oz. That left the whole bottom covered and the top had a thin layer over all of it.

      ReplyDelete
    190. I made these tonight and SO YUMMY!!! I'm 19 and in university so quick, easy, healthy recipes on a budget are awesome! I made 11 rolls tonight and I will be able to have them throughout the week. I'm going to try the low cal cookies and mac and cheese next week - I can't wait! I love all your recipes :)

      ReplyDelete
    191. This is Delicious! I used fat free cottage cheese instead of ricotta, which is even better point-wise, although I still counted each one as 4 old WW points. I will definitely make this again. Thanks so much for sharing this, Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    192. I have made these 3 or 4 times. They are soooo good!
