Lasagna Roll Ups and Wine

We started the week off right by having a delicious dinner and getting to see a good friend. I made this dish:

These are Mushroom Kale Lasagna Roll Ups and they are so easy to make! They were delicious. We did add some chopped pepper and red pepper flakes because we like a little spice.

Here's the recipe:

Mushroom Kale Lasagna Rolls
Servings: 10 • Serving Size: 1 roll • Old Points: 4 pts • WW Points+: 6 pts
Calories: 258.5 • Fat: 8.4 g • Fiber: 3 g • Protein: 11.5 g • Carbs: 30.5 • Sugar: 2 g
Sodium: 208 g (without salt)
  • 10 (9 oz dry) lasagna noodles, cooked
  • 2 1/2 cups marinara sauce
  • 5 cups kale, stems removed, chopped fine
  • 8 oz mushrooms, chopped fine
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 15 oz part skim ricotta cheese (I like Polly-o)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • salt and fresh pepper
  • 3 oz (10 tbsp) part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350°. Ladle about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 12 baking dish.
Place kale in a food processor and pulse a few times until chopped.
In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until golden, about a minute. Add kale, salt and pepper and sauté about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms to the pan, cook until soft, an additional 5-6 minutes. Adjust salt and pepper.
Combine cooked kale, mushrooms, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, egg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and lay out cooked lasagna noodles. Make sure noodles are dry. Take 1/3 cup of mushroom kale mixture and spread evenly over noodle. Roll carefully and place seam side down onto the baking dish.Repeat with remaining noodles.
Ladle 1 cup of sauce over the noodles in the baking dish and top each one with 1 tbsp mozzarella cheese. Put foil over baking dish and bake for 40 minutes, until cheese melts.
Makes 10 rolls. Serve with extra sauce on the side.

After dinner, I headed over to VInyl Wine Bar to meet up with Betsy. Haven't seen her in awhile so it was nice to get together to chat. 

Add that to the list of things we will miss in SF. Ran down the street in 5 min to meet her. Now, we will have to make a plan, drive to meet each other, etc. We were joking that it feels like we're all graduating college or something. Things are changing, people are married, having babies, moving, etc...It's like we've all been living on campus together for 5 years and now we are all moving on in small ways. 

Good thing the bay area is so connected with bridges and trains so we will still be able to see everyone. Hoping our SF friends can cross a bridge to see us too! It is a big joke in SF that if you have to cross a bridge, then where you are going is FAR away. haha

Anyone else making any moves in your life?
