Lasagna Roll-Ups: My Way!

Another post for the day, to make up for the one I missed yesterday. :)

This recipe is a mixture of a lasagna roll-up recipe I saw somewhere, and the recipe I learned from my mama & grandma. And... the small touches I've added! :) Enjoy!

Lasagna Roll-Ups

15 lasagna noodles
1 Pound ground burger
1 Container pasta sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 small onion, sliced into small pieces
2 Teaspoon Italian seasoning, or various similar spices
1 Package ricotta cheese
1 Egg
1/3 Cup Parmesan
4-5 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
Parmesan, if desired
Italian seasoning, if desired

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well. Seperate noodles right away to keep from sticking.
Mix ricotta, egg, and 1/3 cup parmesan in a bowl, set aside.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook meat through. Add onion and garlic when meat is almost cooked. When cooked, add pasta sauce, keep on low or medium low to warm through.
Lay out 3-4 lasagna noodles on clean tabletop or cutting board. Spread small amount of ricotta mixture on each, then meat mixture, then sprinkle with mozzarella. Roll up each noodle carefully, then lay seam side down in a 13x9 pan. Repeat process for all 15 noodles.
Cover with remaining meat sauce and mozzarella. Sprinkle with more parmesean and Italian seasoning, if desired.
Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until heated through.
