Lasagna Roll Ups, an elegant and unique idea

Made this for my friends at Ambassador over the weekend, they were well received and disappeared somewhat quickly.  And they are so easy to make.  Start with good lasagna noodles and cook until pretty soft, about 12 minutes or so, drain and toss with a bit of olive oil.  Now, take two eggs and beat in a bowl and add a half cup of fresh chopped basil and a teaspoon of good Italian seasoning along with some fresh cracked pepper.  Mix in about 16 ounces Ricotta cheese and about 12 ounces of shredded Mozzarella.  Take one noodle and lay on a board, spread some of the mixture onto about 90% of the noodle.  Here is where you can sprinkle on some browned Italian sausage.  Roll it up and set it a baking pan with some of your favorite marinara. 

Fill the pan, top with more sauce and cover with foil making sure the foil doesn't touch any food.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and top each roll with a bit more of the shredded cheese.  Return to the oven and bake another 15 minutes.  Serve with good whole wheat bread and olive oil mixed with garlic and fresh herbs.  Yummy!!!!!
