Well at least it seems you know what you did wrong so it's a lesson learnt scenario?

Emmaline, maybe you would do better with some lasagna roll ups, and unlike lasagna, they're so easy to serve. Here's a picture of mine after and before I baked them.

I don't think I've posted recipe/instructions, but I'll work on that tomorrow.
Thanks for the interest Taxi.

I also do a roll-up. My favorite version involves sauteed mushrooms, garlic, spinach and seasoning in a ricotta base. This gets spread onto lightly cooked noodles, sprinkled with shredded parm rolled, covered with sauce and baked. The ratio of noodle to filling is a bit higher than traditional lasagna which I like and as noted is serves so nicely!

Actually Janet, my lasagna roll-ups are much like yours. I don't like ricotta so I use a 1-1 mixture of cottage cheese and grated Mozzarella with lots of Italian herb mix. Sometimes I use Italian sausage in the mix along with the spinach and mushrooms, but it's just as good without it. The key is to dip the no cook noodles individually into a skillet of boiling water, just until they are pliable enough to roll. It's important to have plenty of marinara sauce in the pan before baking, as can be seen in the before and after picture. A Bechamel sauce can be added on the top if you wish.

I fry the Italian links and cut into fairly thin rounds after they cool. Then I arrange the rounds like one would arrange pepperoni on a pizza.
I also make meat balls instead of using plain ground beef. When cold, I slice them up into rounds as well.
Makes for a very nice presentation and the texture is not one of ground meat.

Agree. Once was enough for me too!
