"When making traditional lasagna, my mother would always have leftover noodles, so she experimented and came up with this tasty way to use them up," writes Renee Buck from Greenville, South Carolina. "You can substitute chicken for the ground turkey and use spinach instead of broccoli in the filling for these roll-ups," she suggests.
