WOYWW and pepperoni cheese roll-ups

My Work Desk  and a egg shaped canvas

For dinner on my
13 yr old son's birthday 
I am making Pepperoni Cheesy Roll-ups


cook a box of wavy lasagne noodles
till slightly underdone (very very el dente)

the noodles will cook fully in the oven
drain the noodles after boiling for about 5 mins
cool the noddles fast with ice-cubes right in the pot
(noodles have to be soft enough to roll up )

add EVOO to keep the noodles
 from sticking together

chop up some pepperonis ...as much as you like

little bitty pieces

cook for a few mins over med-hi heat 
to get some of the fat out and drain on some paper towels

mix up two  med eggs
 five tablespoons of cream-cheese
 a cup and half of shredded mozzarella
 half cup of Parmesan  cheese
...garlic and onion salt if you like

cheeses mixed all together

mix all the cheeses up with eggs - spread on noodle

Sprinkle on some of the chopped pepperoni

I use a jar of spaghetti sauce save one third for the topping
 and I use sugar to get rid of the acid flavor 
I sprinkle a little chicken broth over the noodles
 to add a richness
this is healthier than adding butter to the noodles
then top the roll-ups with the remaining third of the
  sweet spaghetti sauce with a cup of water added
this water will help the noodles finish cooking in the oven

sprinkle the top with leftover shredded mozzarella  and pepperoni crumbs
cover with foil

bake in 350 oven
for 40 mins
let it cool slightly (10-15 mins)
and then
