Chicken Cheese Lasagna Roll Ups

This is my first attempt to blog about food. I thought pictures would be helpful so I tried to take them throughout making the meal. Let me know what you think :)

So Friday afternoon I saw a friend post this on and just HAD to try it!

Chicken Cheese Lasagna Roll Ups!

3 cups chopped Chicken
1 cup Ricotta Cheese
1/4 cup crumbled Feta
1/4 cup grated Parmesean
1/4 cup milk
1/8 t. ground pepper
Garlic salt to taste8 lasagna noodles (cooked)
2 cups Spaghetti sauce of choice


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spread 1 cup of spaghetti sauce in an oven safe pan (8 x 8 was perfect for me, but I only made 6 for my family.)

In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients EXCEPT the noodles and the sauce. Mix well, but do not over mix as it will cause the ricotta to get gross.

Lay a lasagna noodle flat, and spread 1/8 of mixture across the noodle. Repeat this with each noodle. (Note: most lasagna noodles are sold now "ready for use" but you will need the noodles to be flexible in order to roll them. I cooked my noodles in boiling water for 3 - 4 minutes.)
Place each roll up in the pan on top of the spaghetti sauce. Once you have completed all of your roll ups, using a spoon spread sauce on the top of each roll up. Sprinkle additional parm. cheese on top. (I also sprinkled oregano for additional color and flavor)

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. The sauce will be bubbling from the sides and the cheese will be nicely melted on top of the roll ups.

Serve with salad, bread, and additional vegetable for a complete dinner. Absolutely incredible and easy way for quick lasagna that looks awesome! Bonus, if you have kids they will LOVE helping you make this meal. My daughter Zoe had a blast helping me stir and spread the cheese mixture on the noodles.

    Shelly, this looks great, and the photos do help. I'm thinking of trying it with venison sausage instead of the chicken, but either way, I'm sure it will taste wonderful. I may try it tonight!

  3. Yummy! I'm going to try it out later this week! I may do it without meat. We aren't vegetarians, but I like to do a few meatless recipes a week since I'm not a big fan of meat.
