Recipe: Spinach Lasagna Rolls…and SNOW

Made this for dinner last night and YUM.  I’m a fan.

Points+ Value: 6 per roll

Spinach Lasagna Rolls

  • 9 cooked lasagna noodles, cooked
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach (thawed, drained)
  • 15 oz fat free cottage cheese (recipe called for ricotta, but DH prefers cottage cheese)
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • 32 oz tomato sauce (2 cans)
  • 9 T. (3 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix spinach, cottage cheese, parmesan, egg and salt and pepper in a bowl.  In a glass baking dish (9 x 12) spread about 1 cup of tomato sauce on the bottom.

Spread 1/3 cup of spinach mixture onto each lasagna noodle.  Roll noodles carefully and place them (seam side down) in the glass baking dish.  Spread remainder of tomato sauce over the noodles.  Add 1 T. mozzarella cheese on top of each roll.  Cover baking dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes.


A piece of garlic bread (4 P+) and a salad (2 P+) rounded out my delish dinner.  We both had this (minus the garlic bread) for lunch today, too…since we were both snowed in.

For only the first time in history – the University of Missouri is closed for two days in a row.  I remember the first time that happened.  It was my first year teaching (2006), and the interstate was closed for a few hours.  Today it’s closed again – across the entire state.

Taken every hour (for 4 hours...obviously).

Now for the cute snow pictures…

Sup, Mom?


Just look at those freckles!

I *had* tall boots on...yet they weren't tall enough.

Funny story.  So today we watched for at least 2 hours as a woman got her car stuck in the road right past our house.  She apparently had important groceries, because she borrowed a wagon from one of our neighbors and attempted to drag the wagon down the street (which had at least a foot of snow).  Then a van tried to come and pick her up and also got stuck.  About 2 hours after this (with the help of several more neighbors) the lady and her van disappeared.  I’m assuming she got home.  Her car’s still blocking the road…

Seriously people. Stay inside!

The plan for tomorrow’s snow day??  Read.  Definitely.  No more laundry.  I did at least 10 loads today.  Hopefully the possibility of being mobile is there for those who need it.
