Cheese lasagna rolls (and my cat makes a cameo)

After making awesome chicken Caesar lasagna rolls, I was inspired to make regular lasagna rolls. Although regular lasagna does usually keep well for leftovers, it’s nice to have the option the lasagna rolls give you of only preparing exactly what you need.
