I saw these on the Food Network show "Everyday Italian" yesterday and had to make them. They are so good! I added a few extra ingredients like the basil and mushrooms. You could probably use alfredo in place of the marinara sauce, and the bechamel sauce added a nice touch. This takes a little long, but it is worth it!

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over med-low heat.
  2. Add the flour and whisk.
  3. Once combined and smooth, whisk in the milk.
  4. Whisk until the sauce is smooth and thick, about 3 minutes, then add the salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  5. Pour sauce into a large glass baking dish and set aside.
  6. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  7. In a medium bowl, whisk the ricotta, spinach, Parmesan, prosciutto, egg, and mushrooms till blended.
  8. Boil the noodles in a large pot of salted water until they're al dente; a little tender, but still firm to bite.
  9. Drain the noodles when done and arrange on a clean surface.
  10. Spread the ricotta mixture evenly over each noodle, about 3 tablespoons per noodle.
  11. Roll the noodle like a jelly roll and place seam-down in the pan with bechamel sauce.
  12. Repeat with remaining noodles and cheese mix, and don't let the rolls touch in the pan.
  13. Cover the rolls with the marinara and mozzarella.
  14. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  15. After that, uncover and sprinkle the rolls with the basil.
  16. Bake for 15 more minutes until cheese is golden.
  17. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  18. Top with more Parmesan and mozzarella if you like and enjoy!
