Mondays Menu: Meatless Lasagna Rolls Microwave Recipe

This was one of the few recipes in my repertoire when I was a young bride. Meatless lasagna rolls are easy, delicious and best of all they are cooked in the microwave.

Ingredients

4 uncooked lasagna noodles
1 10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
2 slightly beaten egg whites
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese, drained
1 cup packaged shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
Dash garlic powder
1 8 oz can low-sodium tomato sauce




Directions

1. In a saucepan cook noodles according to package directions; drain. 2. Thoroughly drain spinach, pressing out excess liquid. 3. Combine egg whites, cottage cheese, spinach, 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese, the Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil and garlic powder. 4. Spread one-fourth of the spinach-cottage cheese mixture on each lasagna noodle. Loosely roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short edge. Place, seam side down, in 1 3/4 qt casserole. 5. Pour tomato sauce over rolls. Cover with microwave safe lid or plastic wrap. Cook on high for 25 minutes. 6. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Cover and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Makes 4 servings.

    I’ve never made any type of lasagne in the microwave before, this sounds (and looks) really good! Thanks so much for the recipe!
