What are Lasagna Roll-Ups?

We love new takes on a classic lasagna!

A lasagna roll up is made by rolling all of the traditional lasagna ingredients in pasta instead of layering them in a pan.

In this case, we’ve taken the ingredients in our favorite chicken lasagna and created rolls filled with chicken and veggies.

Ingredients

CHEESE Our recipe lightens it up by using a cottage cheese mixture but ricotta works if you’d prefer.

VEGGIES Chicken and Broccoli is the classic comfort food combination but any steamed veggie from carrots to asparagus will work.

SAUCE This recipe uses a creamy homemade sauce. It’s rich and delicious while still being a bit lighter than a traditional alfredo sauce. While I prefer the flavor of the homemade sauce, to make prep quicker, you can substitute a jar or two of alfredo sauce.

Leftovers

  • Keep creamy chicken roll-ups in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat the entire casserole in the oven or individual portions in the microwave. Add extra cheese and place the roll-ups under the broiler until the cheese is browned and bubbly.
  • Cooked and cooled lasagna roll-ups can be frozen up to 2 months. Thaw and reheat using one of the methods above.

Ingredients

  • 12 lasagna noodles cooked and cooled
  • 4 cups cooked chicken
  • 3 cups broccoli cooked and cooled
  • 2 ½ cups mozzarella shredded

Cheese Mixture

  • 2 cups cottage cheese or ricotta
  • 1 cup mozzarella shredded
  • ¼ cup parmesan shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped

Sauce

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella shredded
  • ¼ cup Parmesan shredded
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon oregano chopped

Instructions

  • Combine cheese mixture ingredients and set aside.

Sauce

  • In a medium saucepan, cook onion and garlic in butter until tender, about 3 minutes. Add flour and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add broth and milk a bit at a time whisking after each addition. It will be thick at first but will thin out. Once all of the liquid has been added, stir in cream cheese until melted. Simmer 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and stir in mozzarella cheese, Parmesan, dried basil, and oregano.

Assembly

  • Place 1 cup of the sauce mixture in the bottom of a 9×13 pan.
  • Lay out noodles. Divide cheese mixture, broccoli, and chicken over noodles. Top each with 2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese.
  • Roll noodles and place seam down in the pan. Top with the remaining sauce.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle with remaining cheese, and bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool 15 minutes before serving.

Notes

Cottage cheese can be substituted with ricotta if you’d prefer.

Any steamed veggie from carrots to asparagus can be added with or instead of broccoli.

We prefer the flavor of the homemade sauce, to make prep quicker, you can substitute a jar or two of alfredo sauce.
