Spinach Florentine lasagne rolls

    1 hour 5 min

    The 'florentine' cuisine style (of Florence, Italy), meaning that spinach features prominently in the dish, lends itself supremely well to these lasagne pasta rolls. The lovely tomato-based veg, herb and cheese filling bakes beautifully in the mozzarella and Parmesan-covered pasta rolls for a vegetarian main you'll want to make again and again!

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
