  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees. Cook noodles according to package; drain. Run under cold water.  Lay noodles onto a  flat, clean kitchen counter, trying not to break any of the noodles.
  2. Meanwhile pour oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onions about 2-3 minutes, then add ground beef and cook until no longer pink.  Drain excess fat, if needed.  Return meat mixture to the saucepan and add spaghetti sauce. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, baby spinach, oregano, basil, and yolk.  Mix until well blended.
  4. Place 1 scoop of cheese mixture on one end of each lasagna noodle and then gently roll-up.
  5. Place 3 cups of sauce into an 8×8 or 9×9 baking pan.  Place roll-ups on top of sauce; seam down. Pour the remaining cup of sauce over the roll-ups.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil.  Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and remove foil.  Let stand about 15 minutes before serving.
