Spinach Lasagna Rolls

My husband and I loved these. They were so easy, but had a big taste. My kids are not big fans of lasagna so I just took extra spaghetti sauce and made them rigatoni. And since the recipe only makes 6 it was perfect for our dinner - with leftovers for lunch the next day.

4 oz cream cheese, softened
10 oz frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 1/4 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
6 cooked lasagna noodles
2 1/4 c spaghetti sauce (click here for my recipe)

Mix cream cheese, spinach, 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Spread mixture onto lasagna noodles, roll up tightly. Spread 1/4 cup of the spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 9-inch square baking pan. Place lasagna rolls, seam-side down into the pan. Top with 2 cups of spaghetti sauce and 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

Freezer Directions
Make as directed in a foil pan and cover with heavy duty foil. To serve, thaw and bake as directed for 30-45 minutes.  Often times, freezer meals take a little longer in the oven since all the ingredients start out cold.
