It’s that time of year again where it seems we all resolve to eat better, loose weight and work out more. I’ve never been good at any of that. I can do it for a week and maybe two but before I know it I slip right back into that familiar routine.

My goal instead is to reduce the calories of what I do eat, even if that means only eating half of that candy bar I am munching on right now as I write this post. In my defense they are Snicker’s Mini’s so eating a whole one isn’t a bad thing at all as long as I stop at one.  Okay since I failed at this already I will start again tomorrow, repeat after me. I can only have one!

Today’s dinner was these amazing Skinny Lasagna Roll Ups. I used whole grain lasagna pasta, skim ricotta cheese and low fat mozzarella. I also used a jarred Marinara Sauce to save time. I also put about 6 oz. of blanched spinach in the filling. I wish you could of smelled them while they were baking or even give you a little taste. I can share the recipe with you and I am pretty sure you’re going to love these.

    Trying this recipe tonight. Just realized the egg is called for as an ingredient, but it’s never stated where to put it. I’m assuming it goes into the ricotta mixture as a binder. Either way, I’m sure it will be delicious! Just a heads up. ????
