  • Meanwhile, in a large sauce pan over medium heat add oil and cook broccoli or spinach and green onions until tender, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat and stir in ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt and egg.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Place noodles in a single layer on a sheet of waxed paper. Evenly spread some of the cheese mixture on each noodle. Roll up each noodle from the short end, jelly-roll style.

  • In a 8x12 inch baking dish, spoon about 3/4 of the Alfredo sauce on the bottom and spread evenly. Arrange the rolled noodles, seam side down, in the dish. Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining sauce. Cover loosely with foil and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly and the cheese is melted. Serve.

This was definitely a wonderful dish. I made a few changes with great results: I made 10 instead of 8, otherwise the spinach mixture would have been too much in each. I also added sauteed mushrooms (1/2 pkg) and 2 finely chopped chicken breasts. I poured roasted red pepper pasta sauce on the bottom of the pan and a little over each one before ladling on the alfredo. This way, it was a little lighter, the sauces complemented each other... and it all looked nice too. Try it, you'll like it! Read More

I was not wowed by these. I followed the directions to a T, except for adding fresh garlic and chopped sundried tomatoes to the spinach filling after reading some reviews about how it was bland, and still found the whole dish somehow salty AND bland at the same time. The filling was good after my changes, but the finished dish once I poured the sauce on was not what I was expecting for such a well-reviewed recipe. I used Newman's Own All Natural Alfredo Sauce, so perhaps it was the brand? Either way, the only way I'd make this again would be if I used marinara instead of alfredo. Thanks anyhow! Read More

This was excellent! I took some of the other reviewers' suggestions by adding chopped chicken that I had cooked with garlic and Italian seasoning and some mozzarella to the filling. And I stuffed mine in manacotti shells. I also added some shredded carrot to the filling for added color and nutrition. It was very good. Also great to prepare ahead of time and keep in the fridge or freezer until ready to bake. Read More

I made this last weekend for supper for my husband and I. Weboth thought it was great! Not something that we would want each week, but it was SO GOOD for a change. Would be great for company. The only thing I learned was to use a paper towel to dry all the moisture off the noodles before trying to roll up as it makes it much easier. I also added chopped chicken, but the next time I will boil my chicken breast and shred it very fine and it will be much easier to not only roll up, but to eat! Read More

Absolutely wonderful! Made for a pot luck and got great reviews. Used a plain homemade alfredo sauce for the base, then topped with a store bought Sun-Dried tomato alfredo sauce. Make sure you dry out the noodles before rolling, and use a spatula to spread the cheese mixture. Read More

I got this recipe years ago from a family friend. I just cook the frozen spinach according to package directions, then mix with the ricotta-parm mixture and spread on the noodles. I use a jar of spaghetti sauce as the base, put the noodle rolls down, then cover with more spaghetti sauce. I make a thick mornay sauce to pour over the top, simmering butter, flour, milk, eggs, and (parmesan) cheese until it reaches the desired consistency. this cheese sauce is really the star of the recipe. I would imagine this is still good with bottled Alfredo, but I really like it with the two sauces, and nothing compares to that rich, creamy sauce on top! Read More

A great twist on traditional Lasagna. My husband who is very heartburn prone loved it because it contained no tomatoes. Read More

This recipe looked just like it like it does in a restaurant. My guests were impressed. However it needed a little more flavor. Next time I will add a lot of garlic and maybe some italian spices. Read More
