White Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups


This lasagna comes dressed to the dinner table all frilly and rolled up!  Not to mention portion control. All you will need is one. They are such a different spin on traditionsl lasagna and a snap to make. I thought for sure they would be a little challenging, not at all. You can even make one at a time. Now you wont be left with an entire tray of lasagna.



Ingredients:

1 lb. chicken breasts, roasted and shredded, or you can use rotisserie
1 cups part skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese, plus more for topping

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
2 tbs. fresh chopped Italian parsley
2 cloves minced garlic
8-10 lasagna noodles, cooked as directed and cooled slightly

2 cups Alfredo Sauce, homemade or jarred

Preparation Instructions:

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, mix the chicken, ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, parsley & garlic until combined.
Spread a ladle or two of Alfredo sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.

Lay out one lasagna noodle on cutting board, spread about 1/4 cup of the mixture along the noodle and roll up from one end to the other.  Lay the roll seam side down in the Alfredo sauce.
Repeat with remaining noodles and filling, laying each in the sauce.  
Top with more alfredo sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes until heated through and cheese is browned slightly on top.

  1. Great idea. When I want lasagna and am too lazy to make it, I put a scoop of cottage cheese or ricotta in the bottom of a soup bowl and then add any kind of pasta with tomato sauce. It's not lasagna but it keeps me happy. Your idea makes lasagna 'dinner party worthy'. Thanks

  2. My husband and I love lasagna but don't make it often because we will eat an entire tray in a matter of a day. I think this is so pretty you could even entertain with this dish. Nicely done!

  6. Hi Rina! I'm curious--do you have a good recipe for Alfredo sauce? These roll ups look awesome, but I know the quality of the sauce will be a determining factor in their deliciousness. =)

  7. Hi Jenna! Here is a pretty easy one I use a lot.

    Alfredo Sauce:

    Salt And Pepper
    1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
    2 Tablespoons Butter
    1 clove Garlic, Smashed And Chopped
    2 Tablespoons Flour
    2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
    1 cup Milk
    2-½ cups Shredded Parmesan Cheese
    ½ cups Shredded Romano Cheese
    * Very Important That The Cheese Is Shredded NOT Grated!

    In a Dutch oven, over medium heat, melt the butter. Cook garlic for 1 minute. Add the flour, whisking continuously. Add the cream and milk. Keep whisking as it thickens. Turn heat to medium low and add the Parmesan cheese and Romano cheese. Stir until melted. If it is to think you can thin with more milk :)

  8. PS: I go light on the salt due to the cheeses. Season it at the end to taste along with the pepper.
