Hearty Lasagna Rolls

To cut-down on dinnertime preparation, cook the lasagna noodles the day before. Rinse until cool, then layer on a baking sheet in-between sheets of waxed paper and covered with plastic wrap.

  • 1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small carrot, finely chopped
