  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Once the water is boiling, stir in the lasagna noodles, about 3 or 4 at a time, and return to a boil. Cook the noodles uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes per batch. Drain well in a colander set in the sink, and lay the cooked noodles flat on waxed paper or aluminum foil while you finish cooking the rest of the noodles.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish, and spread the salsa evenly over the bottom of the dish.
  3. Place the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, sprinkle with taco seasoning, and cook and stir the meat, breaking it up as it cooks, until the meat is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Drain the fat, and place the meat in a large bowl.
  4. Mix cottage cheese and Parmesan cheese into the meat. Place a cooked lasagna noodle out flat, and spread about 1/3 cup of the cheese and meat mixture along the length of the noodle. Roll up the noodle, and place the filled rolls, seam sides down, into the prepared baking dish. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the queso sauce over each roll. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the sauce is hot and bubbling, about 40 minutes. Uncover the dish, and spread the Mexican cheese blend over the rolls. Return to the oven, and bake until the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 more minutes.

YUMMY!! Thanks for a great recipe! I did have to sub the cottage cheese for sourcream and I left out the parm! But other than that I followed the recipe and it turned out great! I was able to get 6 fully stuffed rolls out of this. Which was fine, because I did lose a few noodles while cooking. My hubs really enjoyed these. I'll def be making again! I served with refried beans. I agree with the submitter....take the time to roll these up and everyone will be impressed!! I also used spaghetti noodles (broke down to toothpick size) to hold them together instead of the toothpick :)

It was too difficult to roll up the lasagna. I just gave up and made a regular flat lasagna, but that still turned out well. I also used corn lasagna noodles, which worked fine.

why don't you use precooked cannelloni pasta? It's much easier to use and the result is the same.

I think everyone that says its to hard to roll up noodles its just plain laziness. because everyone that has eaten this recipe definitly appreciates the time and the presentation of the rollups instead of flat boring lasagna. Its not difficult it just takes a little time.

I used ground turkey for this recipe (I always sub ground turkey for ground beef). I seasoned my ground turkey with onion & garlic powder and oregano, then I added the taco mixture when it was done browning. I used low sodium taco seasoning, as this recipe seems awefully high in sodium. I couldn't bring myself to throw a glop of the salsa con queso on top of the already dry looking lasagna noodles, so I diluted the queso with some milk, covering the entire noodle. I ended up using only about half the jar. In retrospect, I think heating the queso may have done the trick also. I will be making this again, but I will try adding fresh cilantro to the meat mixture next time and maybe some sliced green onions on top to garnish. I served it with sour cream on top and salad. Very good!

i left the lasagna noodles in the water as i was rolling them up, so at the end they starting splitting. but this recipe was great! i like adding dollups of sour cream too.

Everyone loved this, I thought the hamburger could use a little more flavor; next time will have to adjust that a bit. Super easy; I did top with green enchilada sauce the 2nd time I made it, that was really good too.
