  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese + 1 cup for top, shredded
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 ounces fresh spinach
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 cups marinara sauce + 1 Tbsp for the bottom of the pan

Instructions

  • Boil the lasagna noodles by following the directions on the box.
  • In a pan on medium heat, add 1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Sauté 1 pound of ground beef for 3 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally.
  • Chop 1/2 of an onion and add to the beef. Sauté for another minutes.
  • Add in 3 ounces of fresh spinach, sauté for 2 minutes.
  • Add 1 cup of ricotta, 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, 1 large egg, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir well, sautéing for 4 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Prepare an oven safe dish for lasagna, by spreading 1 Tablespoon marinara sauce on the bottom.
  • On each cooked lasagna noodle spread beef mixture.
  • Roll it up and place in an oven safe dish. (you could also cut each roll in half)
  • Spread 2 cups of marinara sauce on top of the lasagna rolls. Sprinkle 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
  • Cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Take off foil and bake for another 5 minutes. (I broil the last 2 minutes to get that darker color on top.)
