  • 1
    In 5-quart Dutch oven, cook lasagna noodles as directed on package. Drain; rinse with hot water. Drain well.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey, garlic and Italian seasoning; cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until turkey is no longer pink. Stir in 1 jar pasta sauce; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to medium bowl; cool 10 minutes.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, mix spinach, carrot, ricotta cheese and eggs.
  • 4
    Spread slightly less than 1/4 cup ricotta mixture evenly along center of each cooked lasagna noodle. Spread 1/4 cup turkey mixture over ricotta mixture, to within 1 inch of one short end. Roll up firmly toward unfilled end. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Place roll-ups seam side down in pan; cover loosely with foil. Freeze about 30 minutes or until firm.
  • 5
    Place frozen rolls in two labeled 1-gallon airtight freezer bags. Freeze up to 3 months.
  • 6
    To bake 16 lasagna roll-ups, spray two 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dishes with cooking spray. Remove roll-ups from freezer bag; place 8 in each baking dish. Cover with foil; thaw in refrigerator at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 7
    Heat oven to 350°F. Divide remaining jar of pasta sauce between baking dishes, pouring over and down sides of roll-ups. Cover tightly with foil; bake 40 to 50 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Remove foil; sprinkle each dish with 1 cup mozzarella cheese; bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Top with basil.

Expert Tips

  • You don’t have to limit yourself to Italian herb pasta sauce. Try Muir Glen™ roasted garlic or tomato basil in this recipe instead.
  • Try ground chicken or bulk Italian sausage in place of the turkey.
  • Whole wheat lasagna noodles can be used in this recipe. Just work carefully when rolling as they tend to be a bit more fragile.
