Easy Italian Sausage Lasagna Roll-Ups

i really love lasagna. who am i kidding, i love all italian food. but it has too many ingredients and steps if ya ask me. i suppose thats what makes it good though. but when i get a craving for it, and havent been to the awesome italian restaurant downtown to get my fix, i have to make do. ive made something similar to this before, but i wanted to jazz it up a bit. so i used my new favorite kinda of pasta sauce, vodka sauce. its so yummy and creamy and bad for you. and i used italian sausage to add some flavoring. it was husband approved, so that means its blog approved :)


Simple Italian Sauage Lasagna Roll-ups
makes 9

1 lb ground italian sausage (my grocery store was out, so i just used the links and squeezed it out the casing)
1 jar vodka spaghetti sauce (or your favorite kind)
9 lasagna noodles
2 cups mozzarella cheese


1. Brown italian sauage in pan. Drain meat and return to pan. While that is cooking, being to boil your water, salted, for noodles. Cook noodles according to directions.

2. Once meat is returned to pan, add half the jar of sauce, and cook on low until heated.

3. Once noodles are done, its time to assemble. I usually put a piece of aluminum foil down as an easy work surface. Remove noodles from water and layout and work surface. (i usually do 3 at a time) put some meat mixture on eat noddle, and top with cheese. Roll up each noddle and place seam side down in a baking dish that has a little bit of sauce in the bottom. Repeat for all 9.

4. Cover roll-ups with remaining sauce and cover with the rest of cheese.

5. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes until the cheese gets all gooey and everything is warm.

6. Scoop out on plate and enjoy!
