12lasagna noodlescooked according to package directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray.
Cook the noodles according to the package directions, then drain and lay them flat on a baking sheet without overlapping. Set aside.
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef with the chopped onion and garlic. Add the marinara sauce and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a large bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, egg, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
To assemble, spoon about 1/2 cup of sauce into the bottom of the pan and spread it around as evenly as possible. Set aside another 1 cup of the sauce for topping the lasagna roll ups.
Divide the ricotta mixture evenly between the lasagna noodles, using the back of a spoon to spread it down one side of each noodle. Add a spoonful of sauce to each noodle, spreading it on to of the cheese mixture.
Roll up each noodle and transfer to the baking dish, arranging them in rows. Spoon the reserved sauce on top, then sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for 10 minutes more until the cheese is melted and the lasagna roll ups are hot.
Sprinkle with the chopped fresh parsley and serve.
