"Thick and hearty rolls filled with ricotta, Parmesan, and a beefy tomato sauce. A fun spin on a family favorite!"

white onion, chopped
1 (26 ounce) jar
chunky tomato sauce (such as Ragu®)
1 (15 ounce) container
chopped fresh parsley
grated Parmesan cheese
1 (12 ounce) package
shredded mozzarella cheese, or as needed
grated Parmesan cheese
I used ground turkey in this recipe, homemade chunky marinara (I was even able to "hide" zucchini in this roll up recipe in the marinara and none of my family members could tell!) and "trim" cottage cheese instead of ricotta. I did end up using a little more mozzerella than the recipe asked for--my husband requested more cheese. Even with my substitutions, the recipe turned out fabulous and the family loved it! Good recipe. NOTE: For those of you who use a jarred sauce, be sure you taste your sauce before you add in the whole three tablespoons of white sugar. It might be a little too sweet for some.
It was a bit too dry. I eliminated the sugar. I can't imagine that lasagna needs sugar.
I love this recipe when having a small dinner party. I can put it together in the morning and bake it just be fore dinner. I fudged the recipe a bit and put half italian sweet sausage and half ground beef and because of the sausage, I left out the sugar. The sugar usually just brightens up the tomatos so I would make the recipe as written if I only used ground beef. My husband loves this and so did my friends.
I really liked the concept of this recipe. It was very tasty but it was also very dry. The next time I make it I am going to try and roll up the cheese and meat and then cover the rolls in sauce to see if that makes a difference.
Yummy!!!!! Definitely keeping this one.
too dry and omit the sugar
I would recommend eliminating the sugar completely because it causes the lasagna to have a very sweet taste. Otherwise good :)
