Directions:

  1. To make the sauce, place all of the sauce ingredients in a 1 1/2-quart pot, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. To make the filling, place all of the filling ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, and stir to mix well. Set aside.
  3. Cook the noodles al dente according to package directions. Drain, rinse with cool water, and drain again.
  4. Coat a 2 1/2-quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. To assemble the roll-ups, arrange the noodles on a flat surface, and spread an eighth of the filling mixture along the length of each noodle. Roll each noodle up jelly-roll style, and place in the prepared dish, seam side down. Pour the sauce over the roll-ups.
  5. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, top with the mozzarella, and bake uncovered for 10 additional minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve hot.
Tips:
  • In a hurry? Instead of preparing homemade sauce for your Lasagna Roll-Ups, use 3 cups of bottled marinara sauce.
