3-Cheese Lasagna Roll-ups

I just had this recipe sent to our email box. It sounds DELICIOUS to me so I thought that you might enjoy it also. This would be great for a couple, family, party, etc. Any roll-ups that are not eaten, can be frozen and pulled out later, heated in the microwave and eaten. Life is GOOD!!!

■1 lb. lasagna noodles
■32 oz. pasta sauce
■2 lb. ricotta cheese
■1 lb. mozzarella cheese, grated or diced small
■1/2 C. parmesan cheese, divided
■1/4 C. chopped parsley
■2 eggs, beaten

Preheat over to 350 degrees.Cook lasagna noodles in boiling salted water until almost done. Rinse in cold water, then toss with some olive oil (about 2 Tbs.) to keep from sticking. Cut each noodle into three equal pieces. In a bowl, combine ricotta, 1 C. mozzarella, 1/4 C. parmesan, eggs and parsley. Spoon some of the ricotta mixture (roughly 2 Tbs.) of the mozzarella on each piece of lasagna noodle and roll up. In a 9x13-inch baking dish , place 1 C. of sauce on the bottom. If there are any leftover noodles, place them over the sauce. Place 1/2 of the roll-ups, seam side down,on the noodles. Then sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella, then 1/2 of the sauce. Then the remaining roll-ups, sauce, mozzarella and the 1/4 C. parmesan. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes longer. Makes about 32 roll-ups.

Freezing directions: when lasagna is ready to bake,cover tightly with foil and freeze.Do not defrost before baking.It must be baked from frozen state 2 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.
