Budget "Manicotti"

This is a budget version of the recipe called Mock Manicotti  from an old issue of Taste of Home. 

The amounts I used were enough for 8 of those things (manicotti? manicottis?), but can be easily adjusted. If served with bread, side dish (such as a salad) and a dessert could be enough to feed 4, but depends on how much you eat.

So you will need:

1 pkg (450g) of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained.
1/2 c (or to taste) sour cream
300-400g cubed chicken fillet, cooked 
salt, pepper, herbs to taste

8 lasagna noodles, cooked

1 can (400g) cubed tomatoes or any sort of tomato sauce of your choice

In a bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients; add salt, pepper and herbs of your choice; divide into equal portions, spread one portion over each noodle and roll it up. Place in a baking dish, pour the tomatoes/tomato sauce all over and heat through in the oven at 175*C/350*F for ab. +/- 20 min. (Should not be overdone otherwise the noodles will get too dry). Can be assembled beforehand and popped in the oven just before dinner.
