Spinach Lasagna Roll Ups

My new favorite recipe :)

1 box of Lasagna noodles
1 Large Egg
1T Garlic Powder
1T Minced Onion
1-3T Italian Spices Mixture
15 ounces of Ricotta Cheese
14-16 ozs of Cottage Cheese
4+4 ozs of Mozzarella Cheese
2-4 ozs of Parmasean Cheese
9 ozs of Spinach Leaves
24 ozs of your favorite Spaghetti Sauce (you may need more if you pick a very chunky sauce)

Mix together all cheeses except 4 ounces of Mozzarella Cheese (save for the top), spices, and the egg.  Put in refrigerator while cooking noodles.

Once noodles are cooked, lay out all noodles and pick 12 that are the most solid (without stay pieces, holes or whatnot, you are going to roll them).

Scoop out 1/12 of the cheese mixture onto each noodle.  Spread out to one end and until about 2 inches to the other end.  Do not spread to the edges (it will spill over too much in the pan when cooking).

Place 2 layers of spinach leaves over the cheese mixture and roll noodle from the end with the cheese mixture towards the end without.  It should roll to fit 3 across the short side of a 9x13 pan and 4 across the longer side.  Once all noodles are rolled, pour sauce over the top.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Sprinkle remaining cheese on top (I like to put a little on each roll, instead of just all over the top) and bake for 5 more minutes.  Serve with your favorite garlic bread and salad :)
