Portobello Lasagna Rollups

Part-skim ricotta and mozzarella keep the fat count low in these cheesy roll-ups, while a little bold-flavored Parmesan goes a long way flavor-wise.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Cook the noodles to al dente according to the directions on the package. Drain them well and spread them out onto aluminum foil or waxed paper to prevent them from sticking.

Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and all the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Season with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the tomato sauce and simmer for 2 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, spinach, egg, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, a few turns of pepper and nutmeg.

Spread 1 cup of the tomato sauce on the bottom of a 9- by 12-inch baking dish. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture onto a lasagna noodle. Top with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mushroom mixture, roll the noodle and place it into the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining noodles. Spread the remaining 1 1/2 cups sauce over the lasagna rolls. Top with the grated cheeses, cover loosely with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes more.

In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes longer. Add the tomato paste, dried oregano, whole tomatoes and bay leaf, and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

    I really love this recipe because its makes me feel a bit better when eating pasta. I made a few adjustments. i added to the marinara sauce carrots, celery, thyme with the rest of the ingredients and let it stew away for an hour, and to the mushrooms I sauteed 2 cloves of garlic and to top it I garnished with minced parsley that gives it extra freshness.... LOVE ELLIE'S RECIPES!!
