Lasagna Rolls


Lasagna is a Christmas tradition in our family.  We usually have it on Christmas Eve (so I can eat it leftover Christmas Day instead of turkey).  I absolutely love it, but it is a long process to make it from scratch.  I decided to test out some lasagna rolls and see how they compared to the "real deal".  They were incredible delicious.  They tasted (almost) as good as my homemade lasagna, without the hassle.  It was even great reheated for lunch the next day.  This dish can be made ahead and frozen uncooked.  This makes 12 lasagna rolls (enough for 6 people).  I divided this into 2 8x8-inch foil pans and froze one for a hassle-free holiday meal later this month.


Lasagna Rolls
(Printable Recipe)

12 lasagna noodles
24 oz cottage cheese
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese, divided
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 Tbsp parsley
1 jar (26oz) spaghetti sauce
1/2 lb hamburger or sausage

Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions.  Drain.

In a large skillet, cook hamburger or sausage until no longer pink.  Drain fat and return to pan.  Stir in spaghetti sauce.  Heat over medium heat for about 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, half of the mozzarella, parmesan, egg and parsley.  Set aside.

Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.  Spread about 1 cup of sauce over bottom of pan.

Lay one lasagna noodle flat, top with approximately 2-3 Tbsp of cheese mixture.  Top cheese mixture with a few teaspoons of sauce and roll up.  Place seam side down in pan.  Repeat with all noodles.  Top with remaining sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Bake uncovered for 25 minutes, or until sauce is bubbly.  Allow to cook 5 minutes before serving.

  2. Oh my gosh I love making lasagna rolls over normal lasagna! They're so much more convenient, especially for leftovers. I always had the problem where my slices turned into just a mess, but not with the rolls!

  5. Any tips for freezing this? That might sound like a silly question, but I know nothing about freezing meals! Thanks! These look so good!

  6. Cardio Queen - I put half of this recipe in a disposable foil pan. I cover it with saran wrap and then foil - just to keep out the freezer burn. I take it out of the freezer the morning I want to make it and put it in the fridge all day. If you don't have time for that, just take it out of the freezer while the oven preheats and add 10-15 minutes to the baking time. Just watch it and when it is bubbly, it is done.
