Pound meat as thin as possible (about 1/2 inch thick).

Rub with 1 T. oil.

Combine bread crumbs, parsley, Parmesan, garlic, oregano, 1/4 t. salt and 1/4 t. pepper.

Press onto meat, leaving a 1-inch border.

Roll up, starting with a long side, and tie with kitchen string.

Add onion, and cook until tender.

Stir in tomato sauce, water, Italian seasoning, sugar, and remaining 1/4 t. salt and 1/4 t. pepper.

Remove meat from sauce, discard string, and cut into thin slices.
