Spinach Roll. It's what's for dinner.

This is one of the meals I've been making for years and has finally come to be one that everyone likes.

Actually, until recently, if I made it with ground beef, everyone would eat it, but when I made it with spinach, only Hubby and I would like it. So yay for maturing tastes!

I make a pizza dough in the bread machine and roll it out. This is the first time I used a baking sheet to define the rectangle shape. Usually I just roll it out into a reasonable facsimile of a rectangle (and I don't do a very good job of it either).

I mix together a box of frozen spinach, well drained, with a cup or so of shredded mozzarella cheese, some garlic, olive oil, and black pepper.

I spread the mixture out on the dough, jelly roll the dough up, and brush a bit of olive oil over it.

Then I bake it on a pizza pan for about a 1/2 an hour.

Slice it up, and serve it with some marinara sauce and a salad.

 It's good any time of the year, but it was especially yummy on this cold winter day! It's another vegetarian meal, too. Not that I'm trying to eat vegetarian, but I am trying to watch the cholesterol, so this one is a winner.
