Lasagna Rolls

My Italian lasagna roll-ups are not complicated; they require only basic ingredients to assemble. Prepared spaghetti sauce helps me save time and get dinner on the table sooner. —Mary Lee Thomas, Logansport, Indiana

    By far the easiest and best thing I have ever made. I made a huge batch for work and everyone just loved it all of my Medical family and Corrections Officers. My family just loves it too and if your like me I change it up with different spices and herbs and cheese. It's really easy and fun for the kids to make too.

    I use leftover homemade spaghetti sauce with this recipe and it’s a winner in our home.

    I was disappointed in this recipe as the directions have an error. When mixing the spaghetti sauce in the ground beef, use only 1/2 the amount! The recipe does not state this. It just says add sauce, so I added the whole jar. And when I got further along into the recipe, it says to add the remaining sauce. You only need half the sauce in the ground beef , as otherwise, it becomes too wet, which is what happened to me. Also, a full teaspoon of fennel is way too much. A half teaspoon would be just fine. I plan on making this recipe again with corrections on the spaghetti sauce and half the fennel and we'll see if it is better.

    My family really liked this. I used a jarred sauce with sausage, added some chili flakes and basil and they ate it all up. A real nice change from the usual spaghetti and hardly any extra effort.

    I have to give this a five star which is rare for me. It is going to be in my recipe binder. I did change it up a bit. I made the recipe as described, but in a small bowl I used cottage cheese, one egg, and added the cheese to the mixture. After placing the meat mixture, I put a small amount of the cheese mixture before rolling. All and all, a great recipe. Thank you for sharing.

    I used spicy Italian sausage instead of beef and added a layer of pesto and sour cream. Turned out great!

    Excellent. I made half the recipe and it was perfect for two.
