Lasagna Roll-ups

14 lasagna noodles
3 cups ricotta cheese
2 eggs
1/4 cup chopped parsley or 1-1/2 tablespoons dried parsley
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, Divided
6 big sausage links, casings removed (or buy the ground sausage in a package and use it all).
28-ounce jar of marinara sauce; divided ( I use my spaghetti sauce) same difference.
Serves 6
1: Preheat oven to 375F. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water. Mix ricotta cheese, eggs, parsley and 1 cup mozzarella in a bowl; set aside.
2: Cook sausage in a skillet over medium heat until browned and crumbly, drain fat.
3: Spread 1/2 cup sauce in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Spread 3 table spoons ricotta mixture on each noodle. Top with some sausage. Roll up each noodle. Arrange seam side down in baking dish.
4: Top roll-ups with remaining sauce and mozzarella. Bake, loosely covered for 15 minutes.. Remove cover and bake for 10 minutes longer or until brown and bubbly...
I also add onion to the sausage cause I love onion..a small one cut up would be great. I also add black pepper to the creamed mixture..this is so easy and easy..even your kids can help you assemble them...:) Enjoy!!!
