    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook off 12-14 of the dried lasagna sheets just until softened and pliable (they will cook the remainder of the way when baking) approximately 8 minutes. Carefully strain, toss with olive oil and lay out flat to prevent sticking, set aside.

    In a medium baking dish or oven safe braiser, spoon half of the tomato sauce and spread evenly on the bottom.

  • Step 6

    To assemble the lasagna rolls: spread approximately 2 tablespoons of the ricotta and spinach mix evenly onto each of the cooked lasagna sheets and carefully roll up. Transfer each roll seam side down to the baking dish. Repeat this process until all the lasagna sheets have been rolled. Top with the grated cheese mix and bake covered in the oven on the middle rack for 30 minutes until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese has melted

  • Step 7

    Remove the cover from the dish, turn the oven broil to high and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
