How do you make Three Cheese Lasagna Roll Ups?

Next lay the lasagna noodles out in front of you and spread a thin layer of the the sausage mixture over the noodles dividing as evenly as possible. Sprinkle half of the three shredded cheeses over the sausage mixture and slowly roll the noodle up. Place the rolled up lasagna noodles seam side down in a 9×11 inch baking dish that has been spread with a small amount of marinara to prevent the noodles from sticking.

Helpful tips for making Three Cheese Lasagna Roll Ups
- Purchase and cook the lasagna noodles that must be boiled. You need the noodles pliable for rolling.
- Use good quality fresh ground Italian sausage. It really makes a difference.
- Add the minced garlic during the last 30-60 seconds of browning. Garlic can burn easily in a skillet and once it does it tastes bitter.
- Spread a thin layer of marinara in the bottom of your baking dish to prevent the noodles from sticking.
- Provel cheese is a blend of cheddar, Swiss and provolone. It is available in some parts of the midwest. If it is not available substitute with shredded provolone.
