This recipe is one of my childhood favorites! Since then I decided to modify some ingredients to make it my own (healthier) version!

Ingredients:

1 Pkg Turkey Kielbasa

1/2 Block low skim mozzarella cheese

1 Jar low sugar pasta sauce

1/4-1/2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese

8-10 whole wheat lasagna noodles (depending on how many pieces you cut from the Kielbasa

Toothpicks (1 per roll)

Directions:

1.) Prepare lasagna noodles according to directions on package

2.) While the lasagna noodles are cooking, Cut the Kielbasa into 8 or 9 pieces and then cut a slit down the middle of each piece without going all the way through the Kielbasa

3.) Cut the Block of cheese into small slithers so that they will fit into the pieces of Kielbasa.  Insert 1 slice of cheese into each noodle and set aside.

4.) When lasagna noodles are done cooking, drain and allow to cool for a few minutes.

5.)  Set up your baking pan by coating the bottom with a small layer of sauce.

5.)  Wrap 1 noodle around each Kielbasa piece, secure with toothpick and place into the dish.  Continue until all Kielbasas are wrapped and placed in the dish.  Top with remainder of Pasta sauce and a handful of shredded cheese.  Cover.

6.)  Bake for 30-35 minutes.  Remove foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes to brown slightly on the top.

7.)  Devour!  Although this isn’t entirely fix friendly i fit it in as follows:  1 serving = 1 roll = 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 blue, 1/2 purple
