Lasagna Roll Ups

A girl that I work with subscribes to "Blog Chef".  This is the latest recipe she shared with me.  It looks SO good, I had to share it with the rest of you!  If you try it before I do, let me know what you think...

Lasagna Roll Ups

¼ lb ground beef
2 tablespoons onion (chopped)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 (16 oz) can crushed tomatoes
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dried oregano
1 dash cayenne pepper (or more to your taste)
1 ¼ cups small curd cottage cheese
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 egg (lightly beaten)
1 tablespoon fresh parsley (minced)
¼ teaspoon onion powder
6 lasagna noodles (cooked)
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cooking Instructions:

Step 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.
Step 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.

Step 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.
(Makes 2 servings)
