  6. Spread the mixture onto a cooked lasagna noodle; roll up.
  7. Repeat with the remaining noodles.
  8. Lay the rolled noodles into a prepared greased baking dish, seam-side down.
  9. Cover with a layer of marinara sauce (you do not have to cover the rolls completely with the sauce).
  10. Sprinkle with Parmesan chees (any amount desired).
  11. Bake for 30 minutes.
  12. *NOTE* if desired sprinkle grated Mozzeralla cheese over the rolls the last 10 minutes of baking time.
