This little recipe is a fun twist on traditional lasagne. Instead of lying the noodles flat, you roll 'em up...hence the name Lasagne Roll Ups. It uses prosciutto as the meat so it's not real heavy with meat but you can certainly add ground beef or ground turkey to the sauce if you'd like. The first time I made this was about 5 years ago, then I kind of forgot about it until a few weeks ago when I ran across it in my binder. I'm sure not going to let 5 years go by before I make it again.
