Lasagna Roll Ups

I saw this recipe on pinterest, of course. I've made regular lasagna before, but wanted to try this since it was rolled up. It was sort of messy and took longer than a regular layered one would, but it was nice to have them all separated into little squares when it came time to get them out of the pan. Mike said it was the best lasagna he's ever had. I think next time I won't roll them up, but I will still make it with the same ingredients.

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 (15 oz) container Ricotta Cheese
1 large egg
1/3 cup parsley 
2 1/4 cups grated Mozzarella Cheese
3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
12 uncooked lasagna noodles

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together ricotta, egg, salt, pepper, parsley, 1 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese until mixed well. 

Boil noodles in water with olive oil until al dente. Brown ground beef and drain grease. Return to pan. Pour in spaghetti sauce and simmer on low heat until noodles are done. 

Pour 1/3 cup of the meat sauce onto bottom of 9x13 baking dish. 

Lay noodles out flat one at a time. Layer some of the cheese mix and then some meat sauce onto each noodle. Roll them up and place them into dish seam down. 

(I lost one noodle while cooking)

Place remaining meat sauce and cheese mixture on top spreading evenly. Cover with remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese. 

Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.
