Pepperoni Lasagna Roll-ups

This is a great recipe for just one or two people, but can be increased for more. It also makes for great leftovers. I got it from a Taste of Home (!) cookbook.

3 lasagna noodles
3/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 teaspoon minced chives ( I always leave that out)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
24 slices pepperoni
3 slices Swiss cheese, cut into thirds
1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce ( it works better without the lumps from the meat)
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook the noodles according to package directions; drain.Combine the ricotta cheese, chives, oregano and basil; spread 1/4 cup over each noodle to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Top with the pepperoni and Swiss cheese; carefully roll up.
Place seam side down in a greased shallow baking dish; top with spaghetti sauce. Cover and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Uncover; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
