16 uncooked Dreamfields Lasagna noodles
4 cups (32 ounces) prepared marinara sauce
1 container (10 ounces) prepared refrigerated light Alfredo sauce (1 cup)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
1-1/2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
9 ounces fresh spinach leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon each chopped fresh parsley and chopped fresh basil
1/3 cup dry red wine or chicken broth
Salt and pepper
1 carton (15 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup finely shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips, optional


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain again. Set aside.
  2. In medium bowl, stir together marinara and Alfredo sauces until uniform in color. Set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in large nonstick pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add garlic and onion; cook 1 minute until soft. Add mushrooms, spinach, herbs and wine. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  4. Spray 9 x 13 x 2-inch and 9 x 9-inch baking dishes with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 1 cup of sauce in bottom of 9 x 13-inch dish and 1/2 cup in 9 x 9-inch dish.
  5. Lay noodles on cutting board or counter top; pat dry. Spread 1 tablespoon of ricotta cheese evenly over each noodle. Next, spread 1-1/2 tablespoons of sauce, then 1-1/2 tablespoons of spinach mixture uniformly over each lasagna noodle. Roll lasagna noodle gently but firmly. Place lasagna rolls in baking dishes seam-side down (10 lasagna rolls will fit in 9 x 13 dish and 6 in 9 x 9 dish). Pour 3/4 cup sauce over the top of 9 x 13 dish and 1/2 cup over 9 x 9 dish.
