Lasagna roll ups is one of my favorite, simple, somewhat ‘lazy’ meals to make! You may think that roll ups are harder to make than lasagna. I say “no way” to that and I would argue it’s even less time consuming! For real!
This recipe is really easy to throw together and I’ve made this one slightly healthier—no meat and more spinach than cheese went into the filling. I also used leftover vodka sage sauce from last night’s dinner, but any marinara sauce works. Honestly these roll ups are so good that they don’t need any kind of sauce whatsoever.
There are lots and lots of lasagna roll up versions in the Universe. This one is more like a ‘get inspired’ recipe. Use more cheese, replace spinach with meat, do a Mexican flavor version…whatever inspires you. Either way, I’ve add the rough recipe at the end of this post in case you think these rolls look just perfect as they are!
Now, I baked the rolls side-up rather than laying down on their side. I did this because the best part of this dish—to me at least—is the crispy edges!
It’s also important not to overcook the lasagna sheets. It’s better if you cook them just enough to be pliable—barely al dente! That way the sheets will stay in one piece, it’ll be easy to roll them up and you end up with a perfect texture after baking.
