Lasagna Roll-Ups

These are such a favorite at our house! They make a huge batch, so there are always leftovers for the next day. Honestly, they might even be better as leftovers! :) So easy to make and lasagna a little bit different...

Lasagna Roll-Ups
Makes: 12-14 roll ups

1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
1 (2 pounds) cottage cheese
2 cups mozzarella, divided
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 eggs
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1 jar (28 ounces) spaghetti sauce
12-14 lasagna noodles, prepared according to package directions

Preheat oven to 375. In a medium sized bowl, combine ground beef, cottage cheese, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, eggs, parsley and salt until well blended. Pour half of the spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan. Spoon cheese mixture over the noodles, distributing evenly and roll up tightly.

Place roll seam down on the spaghetti sauce in bottom of baking dish, top with remaining sauce.

Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese and bake for 35-40 minutes or until heated through.

This recipe did not originally call for ground beef, but my hubby needs meat in everything!! So, it makes a little extra then the 12-14 noodles it calls for, so I usually add an extra small baking dish to make them all fit!
