Lasagna Roll Ups Recipe (VIDEO)

Lasagna Roll Ups combine the best of classic Lasagna but are much easier to serve, bake faster and can be enjoyed right away – no resting time required! They are make-ahead, freezer-friendly, and reheat well.

We love comforting pasta dishes like Chicken Tetrazzini, traditional Spaghetti and Meatballs and Mom’s Chicken Alfredo. These are among the most requested meals in our family. Try this Lasagna Roll-Ups recipe and you will make it over and over.

Lasagna Roll-Ups:

We love lasagna in all forms including Skillet Lasagna, make-ahead Slow Cooker Lasagna, and of course Classic Lasagna. These Lasagna Roll-ups are beefy, saucy, cheesy and definitely satisfy the craving for lasagna, but they are way easier to serve. No more messy lasagna squares sliding apart as you struggle to remove them from the pan.

Ingredients for lasagna with lasagna noodles, marinara sauce, ground beef, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese

The Ultimate Cheese Sauce:

We make a 3-cheese sauce with ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. Once the sauce is baked, it tastes almost like an alfredo sauce – rich, creamy, and cheesy.

Beefy Lasagna Meat Sauce:

The best meat sauce for lasagna is essentially a ragu – a meat sauce with ground beef, onion, seasonings, and marinara. We don’t skimp on the meat and use a full pound of ground beef which makes this lasagna supremely satisfying. You can use homemade marinara or your favorite store-bought marinara.

Can I Substitute the Ground Beef?

You can swap out the ground beef for Italian sausage or use ground turkey or ground chicken if you want a leaner lasagna.

How to Make Lasagna Rolls:

The process here is simple and you have all the elements of a classic lasagna but they are rolled rather than layered. This results in 12 perfectly portioned servings of lasagna. It’s brilliant for parties! The process for lasagna rolls is simple:

  1. Cook the noodles
  2. Make the meat sauce and spread 1/2 cup in a 9×13 casserole
  3. Make the cheese sauce
  4. Spread cheese sauce and meat sauce on each noodle.
  5. Roll up noodles, transfer to the casserole dish, spread with remaining meat sauce and mozzarella, then cover and bake.

Step by step how to make lasagna rolls

Tips for Assembling Lasagna Roll-Ups

  • Cook 2-3 extra noodles as some may break while boiling.
  • Cook noodles according to package instructions in salted water until al-dente (do not over-cook). We use about 3 Tbsp salt for a large soup pot of water.
  • Drain cooked noodles then cover them with cold water until ready to use so they don’t stick together.
  • To contain the mess, arrange the noodles 6 at a time on a rimmed non-stick baking sheet (keeping remaining noodles in cold water until ready to use).

Can I Make Lasagna Roll-Ups Ahead?

There are 2 options to make these lasagna roll-ups ahead of time.

  1. Fully assemble and bake, then cool to room temperature, cover, and chill. To serve, reheat portions in the microwave or oven until roll-ups are heated through and cheese is melted.
  2. Fully assemble roll-ups in a casserole dish (without baking), cover tightly with foil and refrigerate overnight or freeze up to 3 months. Bake refrigerated lasagna roll-ups at 375˚F for about 45 minutes. Bake from frozen at 375˚F for about 1 hour.

Ingredients

  • 12 lasagna noodles cooked to package instructions
  • 16 oz ground beef 85% lean
  • 24 oz marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt or to taste for red sauce
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese shredded, divided
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped, plus more to garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F. Cook noodles in a large pot of salted water according to package instructions then drain and fill pot with cold water to stop the cooking process and keep noodles from sticking together.
  2. In a deep pan or dutch oven, over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until no longer pink, breaking up with a spatula (2 min). Add onion and cook until softened (3 minutes). Add garlic, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and 1/2 tsp oregano and sautee another minute. Add marinara, bring to a simmer and turn off the heat. Spread 1/2 cup meat sauce over the bottom of a casserole dish

  3. In a large bowl, stir together: ricotta, 1 egg, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup parsley.
  4. To contain messiness, arrange noodles over a large baking sheet in a single layer. Spread 1/4 cup (1 scant ice cream scoop) of cheese mixture over the top of each noodle. Add a heaping Tbsp of meat sauce in a strip down the center of the noodle. Roll noodles up and arrange in the prepared casserole dish.

  5. Spread remaining meat sauce over the tops of roll-ups and sprinkle on the remaining 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil, making sure foil isn't touching cheese (if your pan is on the shallow side, you can put toothpicks into rolls to keep the foil away from cheese.
  6. Bake covered at 375˚F for 40 minutes. Remove foil and broil another 2-3 minutes or until cheese is lightly golden. Garnish with parsley to serve.

    Natash, once again a great recipe! My favorite part was how cleaver it is to roll the noodle. No more having to slice through 3 layers of noodles and hoping you cut it so another noodle doesn’t pull out also. It’s like individual servings portioned out. The egg is brilliant! Reply

      January 2, 2020

      Hi Shantrell, we used one of our larger pots, I’m not sure exactly how many quarts it was. I think it may still work in a 6 quart, you may need to get the noddles in sideways as they soften instead of up and down. Reply

    It was truly delicious, but I ran out of meat sauce, and could only do 9 noodles, I had plenty of ricotta filling and of course cheese, I watched the video and and thought I was putting the same amount of meat on noodle, but must have put too much, also I may have simmered just a tad too long and maybe too thick….I will definitely make again…it was super good,..I love your very entertaining comical videos…and love your style. Reply

      Hi Mary, we have a note on that on the recipe. Here’s what it says: “There are 2 options to make these lasagna roll-ups ahead of time.
      Fully assemble and bake, then cool to room temperature, cover, and chill. To serve, reheat portions in the microwave or oven until roll-ups are heated through and cheese is melted.
      Fully assemble roll-ups in a casserole dish (without baking), cover tightly with foil and refrigerate overnight or freeze up to 3 months. Bake refrigerated lasagna roll-ups at 375˚F for about 45 minutes. Bake from frozen at 375˚F for about 1 hour.” Reply

    This Lasagna Rollup recipe was absolutely heavenly! I used Ragu with Sautéed Onions and Garlic for my marinara. However…next time I will layer the pasta flat instead of rolling them up. It was messy and the filling kept using out when I rolled them up. It’s easier and faster to just cut it in squares after baking. Reply

    Very good idea. I love lasagna and this was a neat redo. I also like to add vegetables, so I added chopped zucchini and mushrooms to my meat sauce. This is a great way to add vegetables-kids know no difference. It still does take time, but always worth it. Reply

    Made this yesterday. Super easy to make, and tasted great. Only thing I did differently was add chilli flakes however I wish I added alot more than I did. Small thing, when overall it was a quick easy meal! Reply

    Is there a vegetarian option ? Reply

      Hi Christine, I haven’t tested that but I think it could work. One of our readers made a comment making this vegetarian & loving it. If you experiment, let me know how you liked the recipe Reply

      Christine, maybe you could try salted, part cooked egg plant slices and top with mix of lentils and roasted vegetables (blitz them in the blender if you want a more ‘mince like’ look.) Jen Reply

        You can actually use thin sliced eggplant for the roll ups in lieu of lasagna noodles for a low carb option! Also excellent Reply

    Love this recepie and my child loved it too but he eats everything but still it was very delicious and I served it to my mother in law and sister they loved it as well. One question though how do you heat it up in the oven or microwave? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      November 16, 2019

      Hi Viktoriya, I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe! Thank you for that great review. To reheat it you can do it in the oven covering it with foil again. Or using the microwave in a microwave-safe dish. Time will depend on how much you have. Reply

    Hi Natasha, quick question. For the lasagna roll ups why use maranara sauce. And I have t sneak in with one more ? How much crushed garlic in a jar is equal to one clove. Thank you for all the deliciousness you create  Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      November 15, 2019

      Hi Linda, the jar of garlic we used has the amount listed on the side. I believe half of a teaspoon is approximately one clove. I hope that helps. You are also welcome to use a sauce you choose. We like it with marinara. Reply

    Can I make this earlier in the day and just wait to put in the oven until dinner time? Reply

    • Natasha
      November 12, 2019

      Hi Denis, yes absolutely! If it’s going into the oven from being refrigerated, you might add 5 minutes of bake time. Reply

    Can you use fresh lasagna noodles or no boil (oven ready) for this recipe? Reply

    • Natasha
      November 12, 2019

      Hi Judy, I haven’t tried using the oven-ready ones but I did find a recipe online where they used oven-ready but still boiled them to soften so you could roll them up, which defeats the purpose of buying no boil. Reply

      • Judy
        November 12, 2019

        Maybe I could use the same recipe but with the oven ready noodles and layer like tradational lasagna? Reply

    Wow. Five BIG stars for this recipe. Some representative quotes from my husband:
    -“Everything about this is amazing.”
    -“Way better than Olive Garden.”
    -“I’m speechless.”
    -“Why would you ever buy a store-bought lasagna?”
    -“I will do the dishes every single time you make that.”
    We didn’t have ricotta cheese on hand, so I substituted it with ~6 oz cream cheese + ~9 oz cottage cheese. Reply

    I have not tried this one yet although it looks like another 5 star to me, Natasha. I have a question though. I don’t like using re grated cheeses because they all have de caker’s added and I like to ditch the chemicals. do you have an easy way of grating a ball of mozzarella cheese? Thanks. Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      November 12, 2019

      Hi Martha, I wish I had some tips and tricks for you, we use a simple cheese grated for ours. Reply

    • Janet
      November 14, 2019

      Hi Martha, you may want to try grating it cold, right out of the fridge. I always do this with the harder cheeses, and it will not stick as much to the grater. Reply

    I have been making lasagna this way for many years and find it the best; particularly if you have with varied diet choices. I often make some with spinach for my vegetarian daughter, sausage and/or beef for my husband and just cheese for me and it is all in one casserole dish! The only thing different that I do is after my noodles have cooled in cold water, I lay them out to dry on an old tablecloth. I find it so much easier to spread the cheese over a dry noodle vs a slippery wet one. Reply

    Can you make veg.lasagna no eggs? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      November 9, 2019

      Hi Ashok, yes, egg added to the ricotta binds the ingredients. But, you can substitute the egg and can leave it out altogether and your lasagna will be fine but may not cut into perfect pieces. Reply
