What Are Lasagna Roll Ups?

Lasagna roll ups are a fun and easy way to enjoy lasagna without some of the hassle. Think of it as the ‘lazy way’ of making homemade lasagna! They have all the layers of pasta, cheese, and filling you love, but in a more convenient form. Instead of layering each ingredient on top of each other, we stuff our lasagna noodles with filling and roll them up. Cover them in sauce and bake! Lasagna roll ups are a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen, and serving is a whole lot easier.

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that the portions are already made for you! Instead of having to cut a piece of lasagna, you can just scoop up one of these lasagna roll ups and place them on your plate. Chances are, once you taste how delicious they are, you’ll have more than one!

Ingredients for White Chicken Lasagna Rollups.

Here’s What You’ll Need

This recipe uses some awesome cheeses and seasonings, so be ready for your kitchen to smell better than a restaurant! Scroll down to the recipe card for exact amounts of each ingredient.

  • Lasagna Noodles
  • Spinach: We like using frozen, chopped spinach for ease and cost savings.
  • Cheese: Grab some shredded mozzarella, ricotta, and parmesan cheese.
  • Garlic: Fresh, minced garlic will give you the best flavor.
  • Spices: We love the classic flavors of Italian seasoning, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.
  • Chicken: We shred cooked chicken in this recipe. If you don’t have leftovers, rotisserie chicken is a great option.
  • Alfredo Sauce: You can always buy a store brand, but if you have some extra time, we highly recommend our homemade Alfredo sauce.

How to Make Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups

Cooking chicken lasagna roll ups is easier than you might think. You just need to follow a few simple steps and you’ll have a delicious and satisfying meal in no time. Scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of this post for detailed instructions.

  • Prep: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 casserole dish.
  • Boil Noodles: While the oven preheats, boil the lasagna noodles according to package directions, drain, and set aside. You’ll want them to be completely dry so they’ll be easier to roll.
  • Make the Filling: Combine the spinach, cheeses, garlic, spices, and chicken for the filling. Do your best not to eat the whole bowl then and there!
  • Combine: Pour a cup of Alfredo sauce into the bottom of the casserole dish. Now it’s time to make the chicken lasagna roll ups! Lay cooked noodles down on a piece of parchment paper. Spread the filling evenly over each lasagna noodle and roll them up! Repeat until you’ve filled up your casserole dish. Pour more Alfredo sauce over the top and finish with more cheese.
  • Bake and Serve: Bake covered with aluminum foil for 20 minutes and then an additional 10 minutes without the foil. Serve and enjoy!

Helpful Tips and Variations

When it comes to lasagna recipes, this is a fun and easy variation on the classic. Here are a few tips and tricks to make sure your version comes out perfectly.

  • Spinach: It’s very important to squeeze out all excess water from the spinach, or your filling will become watery. We like to use cheese cloth to do this, but you can also use a mesh strainer and a spatula or wooden spoon to press the excess liquid out.
  • Filling Technique: Make sure to leave the end of the pasta noodles clear of any filling so when you roll it up, it seals. Then place the lasagna roll up seem side down in the casserole dish. This will ensure they stay together while baking and serving.
  • Don’t Overfill: Do not overfill your roll ups or they will ooze a lot while baking. While this doesn’t really affect the taste, it does make them a lot messier to serve and not as attractive as you see in the photos. We recommend between 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of filling per lasagna noodle.
  • Make Ahead: Follow all the recipe directions until it’s time to bake. Stop there and cover the casserole dish tightly with plastic wrap or foil. Refrigerate for 24 hours (48 hours max). When you’re ready to bake, remove the plastic wrap, cover with foil, and bake for 30-35 minutes (it takes longer because everything is cold). Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Make It Vegetarian: You can absolutely skip the chicken in this recipe and instead have some delicious cheesy spinach lasagna roll ups. You can also double the spinach and/or add some sautéed mushrooms for extra veggie goodness.

How to Serve Lasagna Roll ups

These white chicken lasagna roll ups are best served fresh and hot out of the oven! They go perfectly with a side salad of your choice, like an Italian or Caesar salad. We also love to serve these with a good hunk of garlic bread or breadsticks!

If you are feeling up to it, we also love to finish off the meal with a big slice of our favorite chocolate cake!

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

We love to make a double batch of this recipe so we’re sure to have leftovers. Here’s how to store and reheat them.

  • Fridge: Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat: You can reheat the entire casserole in the oven or individual portions in the microwave for a quick and easy lunch.
  • Freezer: Cooked and cooled lasagna roll ups can be frozen for up to 2 months if kept in an airtight container. We recommend thawing in the fridge overnight before reheating.
