Lasagna Rolls

The four basic food groups: meat, pasta, sauce and cheese.  You can't really go wrong when a recipe has all four of those as ingredients.  These were great, I added some fresh diced mushrooms as well and sauteed them with the garlic.  Next time I make these I would use more sauce in the meat mixture.
