Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'
Lasagna roll-ups are a little more time consuming than just a regular pan of lasagna...but oh so fun to make. Plus, making lasagna roll-ups lets me recruit help from The Kid (my oldest so), he loves helping me cook - plus its my hack t get him to try new things. For some reason I can get him to eat more veggies, if he assists with cooking them. Feel free to take notes.

Add lasagna roll-ups to prepared pan, placing them seam side down, so they don't unroll.

Then make additional 10 mins uncovered. Cheese should be slightly browned on top and bubbling on the sides.

Make Ahead - you can prepare the lasagna noodles the day before and place in the fridge drizzled with a little oil, to prevent sticking. Or you can prepare the whole dish the day before and just place in fridge or freezer until you're ready to bake it in the oven. Just remember to let it thaw out or reach room temperature before baking.
