3.
Cover with foil. Bake rolls in a 375 degree F. oven about 30 minutes or until heated through.

Meanwhile, for the sauce, coat an unheated 2-quart saucepan with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat. Add onion, sweet pepper, mushrooms, and garlic. Cook until vegetables are tender. Stir in undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce, basil, sugar, and ground black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes or until desired consistency. Serve sauce over lasagna rolls. Makes 8 main-dish servings.
