Ingredients

1lb ground beef or turkey

28-32oz jar of spaghetti sauce, divided

12 lasagna noodles, cooked

1/2 cup grated parmesan

1 egg

8oz ricotta

16oz mozzarella, divided

1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F

In a skillet, brown ground meat. Drain. Add spaghetti sauce (all but about 1 cup), salt and pepper. Turn off heat. At same time, boil water on stove in large pot. Add lasagna noodles and cook until just flexible but not fully cooked.

Combine ricotta, Parmesan cheese, egg, garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

Pour about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.Place a piece of wax paper on the counter and lay out lasagna noodles. Make sure noodles are dry by patting them with a paper towel. Take 1/3 cup of ricotta mixture and spread evenly over a noodle, I add the mixtures to each noodle before I start to roll to make sure I have enough & so I can always add or take from the ones I need to, then do the same with the meat sauce mixture.

Roll carefully and place seam side down onto the baking dish. Repeat with remaining noodles. Ladle remaining sauce over the noodles in the baking dish and top with the mozzarella cheese. Cover baking dish tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until cheese melts.

After all roll ups are done, you now have a choice, you can either bake them right away or you can put them in the fridge for later use or you can freeze them for later. These will last in freezer for several months. If you freeze them, make sure they are fully thawed before putting in oven.
