Low Carb Lasagna Roll Ups

1 white onion, diced
1 pound of extra lean ground beef
1 15oz can diced tomatoes
3 tbsp tomato paste
3 tbsp Italian spice blend
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup goat cheese
20z cream cheese
1/4C beef broth
1 egg
Optional - low carb tortillas (I use mission brand whole wheat carb control)
 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large skillet or sauce pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add the diced onions. Sautee on medium-high until softened, about 3-5 minutes.
Add the ground beef, canned tomato and tomato paste, spices, salt, pepper, and crushed garlic. Continue to cook all ingredients until the beef is cooked through.
In a medium bowl, combine goat cheese and cream cheese. Microwave until melted.
Mix well until cooled a bit and then add the egg. (you don't want scrambled eggs)
Lightly grease the bottom of a 13 x 9 Pyrex glass baking dish.
 
Now - you can either alternate layers of the goat cheese mix and the meat mix and bake, or you can put the meat mixture, topped with the cheese mixture into tortillas and roll them up. 
 
Either way, top the entire dish with more shredded cheese, if desired.
Bake for 45 to 60 minutes without the tortillas or 25 minutes with the tortillas.
Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.
