12 whole-wheat lasagna noodles, prepared according to package directions and drained

9 ounces frozen spinach, prepared according to package directions with excess water drained

15 ounces low-fat ricotta cheese

½ cup parmesan cheese, grated

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

Red pepper flakes to taste

2 cups (16 ounces) marinara sauce

1 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded

4 tablespoons fresh basil, diced

Nonstick spray

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, mix spinach, ricotta, parmesan and garlic in a bowl. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray. Lay noodles out and spread a small amount of the cheese mixture the length of the noodle. Kick up the spice by sprinkling with red pepper flakes. Add more for a bigger kick! Roll the noodle up and place in the baking pan, open end down. Repeat with all the noodles. Cover the rolls with marinara sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and basil. Bake for 40 minutes.
