Step 2

Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 F and prepare the stuffing by mixing the spinach (thawed if using frozen), and ricotta with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Cook the lasagne sheets 3 minutes in boiling water.

Once the noodles are soft, place on a damp cloth. Stuff in the spinach filing on one side and as close like rolling a cigarette paper.
