Vegetarian Lasagna Bundles

Preheat the oven to 350�F.

Cook the noodles in a large pot of boiling water according to the package directions. Drain. Lay the noodles flat on a work surface to prevent them from sticking together.

Warm the oil in a medium no-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a medium bowl.

To the bowl, add the ricotta, spinach, egg whites, basil, Parmesan, pepper, nutmeg, and 1/4 cup of the mozzarella. Mix well.

Spread 1/3 cup of the ricotta filling over the length of each noodle and roll up from one end.
Spread one-half of the marinara sauce on the bottom of a 13" x 9" baking dish. Add the rolls, seam side down. Top with the remaining sauce and the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella.

Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 5 minutes.
