Lasagna, although delicious, is pretty much a carb party. Lighten the load by enjoying a single roll-up, vegetarian style!
1/4 cup black beans drained & rinsed
1/3 cup cottage cheese
2 tsp garlic
4 lasagna noodles
1 oz mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup onions
1 Tbsp parmesan
1 cup pasta sauce
1 cup spinach
Boil lasagna noodles until tender and al dente.
In the meantime, sauté onions, garlic and spinach in a little cooking spray. Once cooked, mix with cottage cheese and mozzarella. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 425F.
When noodles are cool to the touch, place on a sufficient work space.
Spread 1 Tbsp pasta sauce, 1 Tbsp black beans, and about 1/4 of the spinach mixture on each noodle.
Fill the bottom of a 5×7 baking dish with about 1/2 cup pasta sauce.
Roll up filled noodles and place in baking dish (all 4 fit in one dish). Top with remaining 1/4 cup pasta sauce and parmesan.
Bake roll-ups for 20 minutes, until cheese begins to brown on top as desired.
