Lasagna Roll-Ups

Lasagna Roll-Ups
recipe and image from Blog Chef

1/4 lb ground beef
2 TBS onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 16 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 dash cayenne pepper

1 1/4 cups small curd cottage cheese (I think I will use Ricotta cheese next time)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 TB fresh parsley, minced
1/4 tsp onion powder
6 lasagna noodles, cooked
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1. In a large skillet cook ground beef, onion and garlic until the beef is no longer pink. Drain any excess fat from the pan. Add tomatoes, oregano, salt and cayenne. Simmer for 10 minutes. Spread half of the meat sauce on the bottom of a greased 9” baking dish.
2. In a bowl combine cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, egg, parsley and onion powder. Spread ¼ cup of the cheese mixture evenly over each lasagna noodle. Roll up and place seam side down in rows in the baking dish. Top with remaining sauce.
3. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes. About 5 minutes before the dish is finished cooking remove from the oven and top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Return to oven and cook until cheese has melted.

These were amazing! I used the ricotta cheese and it was fabulous. Next time I want to try and use spicy sausage meat instead and a little bit more sauce.
