Classic Lasagna Rolls

 

The second time I cooked OAMC, I used this menu.  On it, there were these fantastic Chicken Lasagna Rollups that my husband and kids loved as much as me.  Ever since then, I have thought I should try the rolls using my classic lasagna recipe; two years later and I finally did.  Now, I won’t lie to you- this is not shortcut lasagna by any stretch of the imagination.  However, the rolls turn out very pretty so it’s a great recipe for entertaining or impressing your friends.  Just try not to cook this on the hottest day of the year like I did; you won’t get it enjoy it nearly as much as you should!

    I’ve made this twice now and my family loves it! I’ve had an issue with the cheese mixture however … There just doesn’t seem to be enough for all the noodles. Maybe I’m just being heavy handed but I think I’ll add more to it next time around. Also, I felt like the cheese need a little spice, so I added 1/2 tbsp of the Italian seasoning.

    I agree with Marisa. I did not have enough cheese filling either. But the sauce is amazing!

    I also add italian seasoning and instead of sprinkling mozzarella cheese to each roll, I just add a cup of mozzarella to the cheese mixture. I have no problems running out of cheese mixture. I like mine pretty saucy so I also added 1/2 a jar of spaghetti sauce to the meat mixture. I love this recipe!
