Lasagna Roll-ups

I have seen several variations of lasagna roll-ups, but I couldn't find an easy one that I liked.  I came up with my own.  The main reason I like the idea of roll-ups rather than normal layered lasagna is that I can control my portion easily.  Each roll-up has about 215 calories and 8.4 grams of fat.

Lasagna Roll-ups

   20 lasagna noodles
   1 1/3 jar pasta sauce
   1 pound ground turkey
   1 container ricotta cheese part skim milk
   1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
   1 cup mozzarella cheese
   2 eggs


Boil noodles according to package directions. Brown ground turkey, drain, and mix with pasta sauce. Combine ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, eggs, and parsley. Coat baking pan with cooking spray and thin layer of meat sauce. Spread cheese mixture on a noodle, followed by a layer of meat sauce, roll, and lay in the pan.

  Continue this with all twenty noodles. (I used 2 pans so that the roll-ups were not touching and would be easy to remove from the pan.) 

Top rollups with remaining meat sauce and additional mozzarella cheese if desired. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Since I'm only cooking for two people, I'll freeze the leftover roll-ups individually which will make for a quick yummy meal when in a rush.
