Tofu Spinach Lasagna Rolls

We are finally feeling Winter here in SouthWest Louisiana and  I thought this one would be perfect for those cold nights.  For this recipe I recommend using whole wheat lasagna rolls, but you can use whatever you prefer.  Also you can find my recipe for spaghetti sauce here or you can use your favorite jar.

    Thanks. They are really delicious. I have made them several times. The same "ricotta" type recipe can be used for regular lasagna as well.
