Healthy Spinach Lasagna Rolls Recipe — A Modern Mrs.
As if I needed to say it, we clearly aren't following the Paleo diet right now. However, that doesn't mean we aren't still trying to eat as healthfully as possible. As such, how does one make lasagna in the healthiest way? By using whole wheat noodles and packing those suckers full of spinach, of course!

I always thought making homemade lasagna would be a task, complete with lots of prep work and a mess to clean up afterwards. I'm excited to tell you this isn't true! Especially when you make lasagna in the form of rolls rather than the traditional layers format. If you're trying to cut back on carbs, you'll also be excited to know there aren't any leftovers with this recipe! It uses half of a box of lasagna noodles, so if you have more than four people to feed, or you have a very hungry four people, I would double the recipe and use the whole box.

On with the goodness I've been promising you!
