Lasagne Florets

 1 lb Colavita Lasagne, cooked al dente according to package directions
 12 oz package frozen spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry
 2 cups ricotta cheese
 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
 ½ cup grated parmesan or pecorino cheese + additional for topping
 1 egg, beaten
 ¼ tsp grated nutmeg
 4 cups homemade marinara sauce
 salt & pepper, to taste

In a large mixing bowl combine the spinach, cheeses, egg, nutmeg, salt and pepper; mix until well blended. Take one lasagna noodle, spread with about 1-1/2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture; roll it up gently so the cheese mixture stays in place.


Continue until all the lasagna noodles are used. Place rolls in the refrigerator for about one hour or until the cheese becomes firm.


Taking one roll at a time gently cut in half down the middle (a serrated knife works best). Layer a large baking dish with two cups of marinara; place florets on top with the curly side up.


Cover with foil; bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes; uncover and bake for 10 minutes more, or until the sauce is bubbly and the cheese is melted through. Serve with the extra sauce and grated cheese.
