Pizza Lasagna Roll Ups


Pepperoni is my hubby's favorite pizza topping and he LOVES lasagna so I knew these would have to be a hit with him...happily, they were! They give that little hint of pizza with a lasagna twist. We are big fans of leftover lasagna because my family thinks that it tastes better the "second time around"...so I made a big pan of these roll ups and we ate to our hearts content!

Pizza Lasagna Roll Ups

1 package lasagna noodles, cooked according to package directions
3/4 c. cottage cheese
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 t. chives
1 t. basil
1 t. oregano
2-3 c. grated Monterey Jack cheese
1 large package of pepperoni (more or less according to your like and dislikes)
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Cook the noodles, drain. Combine cottage cheese and cream cheese, chives, oregano and basil; spread desired amount over each noodle (there will be some noodles left...I had 4 leftover). Top with pepperoni and some grated Monterey Jack cheese; carefully roll each lasagna noodle up. Place seam side down in a greased 9x13 pan. Top with desired amount of spaghetti sauce and grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.

Remove from oven, cool for 10 minutes. Serve- topped with small amounts of freshly grated Parmesan Cheese.

*"Some" recipes you can swap your favorite cheese out for another type of cheese...this is one of those recipes, use the cheese that your family likes.

Enjoy!
