Lasagna Roll-Ups

Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying the start of the 3-day weekend! (sorry to those who don't get one) I've been wanting to make these for some time now, and I just got around to it last night. I'am kicking myself for not making them sooner! They were so so SO delicious. I loved them, and so did my hubbie. He said they were one of the best things I've made. I knew he would like them, that's pretty much why I made them, he's a sucker for anything with marinara sauce. They were a little bit time consuming, but SUPER easy! Please don't pay attention to the provolone in the picture, I didn't end up using it. I was going to put some slices under the roll-ups, but decided not to. Make these TONIGHT! I'm so glad I did, I don't think I've ever been so excited for leftovers! Have a great day everyone! :o)

9 Lasagna Noodles
1 Jar Marinara Sauce
1/2 Pound Ground Beef
8 oz Mozzarella Cheese
3/4 Cup Ricotta Cheese
1/3 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Half of a Medium Onion, diced
Salt & Pepper, to taste
(This makes 9 roll-ups, you can use more/less ingredients depending on your desired amount)

Start by filling a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, add about a teaspoon of salt and then drop in your lasagna sheets. Stir them around once they've softened up to completely submerge them under the water. In a skillet, add your diced onion and crumble your ground beef over it. Once that is cooked, drain off all of the excess fat. Transfer beef mixture to a big bowl and let cool for about 10 minutes. Once your pasta is done (cook it to al dante), lay something (like cookie sheets, or wax paper) on the counter top and drain the pasta and carefully lay out the noodles flat so that they can cool off. While your pasta is cooling, add your ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and 1/2 of your mozzarella cheese to the ground beef mixture; mix thoroughly. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees before you start the rolling process. Take a large baking dish and layer the bottom with a little bit of marinara sauce for a base for the roll-ups. Spoon some of the ground beef mixture onto a lasagna noodle and evenly spread it all the way, covering the whole noodle, making sure not to put too much so that it's easy to roll up. Starting at the bottom, roll the noodle all the way up to the top, and then place it in the baking dish. Repeat process until you've finished, then spoon on the rest of the marinara sauce, covering all of the roll-ups. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake for about 20-25 minutes.
