Spaghetti Roll-Up

Can't really remember where I saw this and couldn't find the recipe.  If it looks like yours let me know.  My little sous chef and I made this for supper last night.  

It was yummy!  The hubs and I are not dieting this week  and I thought that we could use something s little different from the usual spaghetti that we have to have at least once a week for the little one.  This was our 4th of July supper.

1 can of Hunt's Garlic and Onion Spaghetti Sauce (Our favorite)
1 lb spaghetti noodles
1lb hamburger meat
about 1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 tube crescent rolls
onion powder

1. Preheat your oven to 325.  Brown meat and add salt, pepper, and onion powder to taste.  Drain and put meat back into pot.  Add spaghetti sauce and bring to a low simmer.

2. Cook noodles according to directions on box.  I used Thin Spaghetti noodles.

3. While the noodles and sauce are cooking, spread your crescent noodles out on a pan that has aluminum foil spread over the top.  You'll need to flatten the whole tube out to about 1/4 inch thick and make sure the seams are pinched shut.

4.  When the noodles are ready, drain and return to pot.  Add all except about 1 cup of sauce into the noodle pot and mix together.

5. Pile the spaghetti noodles and sauce mixture down the length of the crescent rolls.  Leave about a half inch open at the ends.  You may have some noodles left over.  If you're like me and have  little one that only likes regular spaghetti, you can leave that little bit for them.

6.  Pour that left over cup of spaghetti sauce over the top of the noodles.

7.  Spread the mozzarella cheese along the length of the noddles.

8.  You can either roll it up with the ends tucked in or you can make about 8 angled cutsdown each sideof the rolls, about a half inch apart,  and braid them over the top.  If you just roll them, you may want to cut a few vents on the top so that steam can escape.

9.  Place in the oven on the middle rack and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

If you want to get super fancy, you can brush garlic butter over the top before you bake it.  I made some extra sauce and my husband spooned it over the top of the finished rolls after we cut it.  Hope you enjoy!!
