  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced

  • 1 tablespoon red onion finely chopped

  • 1-1/2 cups mushrooms thinly sliced

  • 9 ounces fresh spinach leaves chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil chopped

  • 1/3 cup dry red wine (or chicken broth)

  • 15 ounces part-skim ricotta cheese

  • 1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese finely shredded

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain again. Set aside.

  2. In medium bowl, stir together marinara and Alfredo sauces until uniform in color. Set aside.

  3. Heat olive oil in large nonstick pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add garlic and onion; cook 1 minute until soft. Add mushrooms, spinach, herbs and wine. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

  4. Spray 9 x 13 x 2-inch and 9 x 9-inch baking dishes with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 1 cup of sauce in bottom of 9 x 13-inch dish and 1/2 cup in 9 x 9-inch dish.

  5. Lay noodles on cutting board or counter top; pat dry. Spread 1 tablespoon of ricotta cheese evenly over each noodle. Next, spread 1-1/2 tablespoons of sauce, then 1-1/2 tablespoons of spinach mixture uniformly over each lasagna noodle. Roll lasagna noodle gently but firmly. Place lasagna rolls in baking dishes seam-side down (10 lasagna rolls will fit in 9 x 13 dish and 6 in 9 x 9 dish). Pour 3/4 cup sauce over the top of 9 x 13 dish and 1/2 cup over 9 x 9 dish.
