Mushroom and Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups

Mushroom and Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups

My kids both start school tomorrow so I decided to make a tasty dinner to say farewell to summer. Italian sounded good so I decided to make vegetarian lasagna roll-ups using sauteed mushrooms, onions, garlic, and spinach along with a ricotta and basil mixture. I topped the mushroom and spinach lasagna roll-ups with a simple marinara that was simmering on the stove. The roll-ups were fun and easy to make and tasted wonderful with the basil marinara. I served these lasagna roll-ups with a tossed salad and some crusty baked bread for a delicious and filling dinner my entire family devoured.
