Manicotti Roll Ups

Don't these look delish?????
It's a different spin on an old fav.
Manicotti is one of our favorite dishes and I'm always trying to find ways to make our favorite foods easier. I'm pretty sure I succeeded and it was a hit. I actually think I prefer them like this.

Manicotti Roll Ups
10 lasagna noodles cooked as directed
1 small container ricotta cheese
1 egg
2 mushrooms washed and diced into small pieces
1/2 zucchini washed and diced into small pieces
handful of parsley chopped
1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 jar Marinara sauce ( I prefer Ragu)

Saute mushrooms and zucchini with 1 Tablespoon of butter. In a bowl, combine ricotta cheese, egg, parsley, and half the cheese. Add mushrooms and zucchini and mix. Spread mixture onto lasagna noodles and roll up. In a 9x13 pan, pour a little marinara sauce on the bottom of the pan then place the roll up on top. Pour the rest of the marinara sauce on to roll up and sprinkle remaining cheeses on top. You may want to use more if you'd like. Bake at 400 degrees, 12-15 minutes.
