This was in Cooking Light magazine. I haven't made this one yet but it sounds like a very interesting tasty veggie dinner.

- Place cooked noodles on a flat surface, spread 1/4 cup cheese mixture over each noodle. Roll up noodles, jelly roll fashion.

- Pour 1/4 cup sauce over each roll and cover with heavy duty plastic wrap.
- Microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

This was a great recipe, would get 5 stars from me, but the sauce was a little too acidic for my tastes. Next time I'll add less vinegar, or possibly leave it out all together. I left out the basil (was in a hurry and forgot to add), and baked the rolls for 35 minutes at 375 instead of microwaving. I'll definitely be making this recipe again - thanks!!
