  • Spoon enough meat sauce to cover the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Arrange six noodles on pan. Spread with cheese filling then top with meat sauce leaving one inch or so at one end of each noodle. This will allow the filling to spread to the end as the noodle is rolled.

  • Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
