Spinach Lasagna Rolls

I had a plan on Sunday to make Spinach Lasagna Rolls. But, due to some things getting in the way I prepped it but didn't get it into the oven... instead Sunday evening turned into Chinese take-out. So, my lasagna rolls waited patiently in the fridge until tonight.

This is a Cooking Light recipe that I've made in the past and we've enjoyed. I haven't made it in quite awhile due to the amount of time it takes to make the rolls. I made two trays of them so that I could give one to a friend. I did change one thing with the recipe. Rather than sprinkling on grated Parmesan for the last 10 minutes of baking, I subbed in shredded mozzarella. It's all about hiding the sauce so I can get my boys to eat it!

I had some nice crusty Italian bread I bought to serve with the lasagna rolls. I decided to do a couple of different things to suit the kids and the grown-ups. For the kids, I simply did a cheesey bread with shredded mozzarella melted over the top. Of course, they were in love with it, 2 ingredients and they are happy campers. For us, I buttered each slice, then sprinkled a bit of garlic powder over each one with a sprinkling of chopped garlic over each one. Now with all that garlic, it's a good thing we both had a slice! Such a simple thing to throw together, but really yummy!
