I have a wonderful meatball recipe that is just a mess to make. It is delicious but hardly worth the effort unless you need a wow dish for guests or pot lucks. This recipe is a simplification of the original and designed to be a “Cook for One” recipe. How ever many lasagna noodles are in the box is the number of servings the recipe will make, usually between 14 to 16 servings.
Beefy Lemon-Spinach Rollups
1 pound ground beef (browned, drained and crumbled)
1 medium to large onion (about 2 cups diced)
10 ounce package frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry)
16 ounces of Ricotta or Cottage Cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder or 4 cloves fresh
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 box lasagna noodles
2, 14 1/2 ounce cans beef broth
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
Brown, drain and crumble the ground beef. Sauté the diced onion. Thaw and squeeze dry the spinach. Combine the beef, onions, spinach, cheese, garlic, pepper and eggs. Let the filling rest in refrigerator while preparing the noodles.
