Mix together rest of ground beef, diced tomatoes and marinara sauce. Coat bottom of lrg glass baking dish with 1/2 of tomato mixture. One at a time spread cheese mixture across each noodle and roll into wrap. Set in glass dish in 2 rows. Bake for 40 mins at 350. Finally take out top with remaining tomato mixture, mozz cheese and bake till cheese is melted. (about 10 more mins)
Serve with french bread.... this even got a 8 Hubby rating....you could add zucchini & mushrooms to cheese mixture and meat is optional. I have also made it with no diced tomatoes, chicken instead of beef and fettuccine sauce. Enjoy!
