Lasagna Rolls

Recently, my son asked me to make lasagna; I mean he pushed the subject for weeks 'mom, can you make lasagna?' 'mom, what about today for lasagna?' drove me nutty. Making lasagna can be a task in itself, but it can also be rewarding and fun too. Especially, if you make them into rolls, yes it is messy (that is what people forget to tell you) but it is so rewarding and fun to make. It is rewarding when you will out that beautifully browned lasagna and hear all of your family (kids include) beg to have it while it rests.
You Will Need:

Lasagna Noodles
16 oz. Whole Milk Ricotta 
2 lbs Grass-Fed Ground Meat
8 oz. Mozzarella (balls)
2 32 oz. Jars Rao Pasta Sauce
Italian Seasoning
2 tsp Minced Garlic
2 tbsp Parsley 
Dried Minced Onions
2 Eggs
Mozzarella Cheese
Parmesan Cheese
Salt & Pepper

Add olive oil to your pan, sprinkle minced dried onions, garlic, with the hamburger

In a separate bowl, add the ricotta, parsley, 2 eggs, salt, pepper, break apart the mozzarella ball, shred raw cheese into bowl, and parmesan cheese; mix together and set aside
Continue cooking hamburger
Add your Italian season, salt and pepper; add tomato sauce and continue to cook. Taste for seasoning adjustments
Shedding in cheese
Mix well
In a 9'x13' bowl, add some of your sauce to the bottom of your bowl
After you cooked the noodles, cool slightly and lay on a baking sheet (this is going to ensure you do not get a mess all over the counter) 
Spread the cheese mixture on top
Add a little sauce
And roll those suckers up; as I said they are messy and stuff will get all over, that is fine, just gather it together (I used a silicone spatula) and place it in the next noodle
Place on top of the sauce
After you filled the pan, top with sauce
Add cheese on top, parsley, and salt; bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, then broil for 5 minutes (or less)
