Portofino Yellowfin Tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil 48 oz. part-skim Ricotta cheese 3 cups part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese, divided ½ cup grated Romano cheese 2 eggs ½ tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. dried basil 1 tsp. dried oregano 18 lasagna noodles (~1 1-lb. box) 3½ cups marinara sauce, dividedInstructions: Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Place 1 cup marinara sauce in the bottom of a 13x9 casserole pan and ½ cup in an 8x8 pan.  Boil the noodles until al dente. Drain and toss with a little olive oil to keep them from sticking together while you work. Lay the noodles flat on a sheet pan or work surface.

Gently roll the noodles into rolls, and place them seam side down in the casserole pan.  Spread the remaining marinara sauce evenly over the lasagna rolls.

Remove the foil and top with the remaining cheese; continue baking for an additional 5–10 minutes.
