Lasagna Roll Ups

This is a great dish to make ahead and then heat & eat!  You can also freeze the roll ups individually on a cookie sheet and place in freezer bag, defrost and heat when ready to serve.  Feel free to customize the roll ups.  Sometimes I just keep it vegetarian and only mix in veggies such as, sautéed mushrooms, onions, and cooked spinach.  Other times, I add chopped prosciutto or ham.  You can also sauté some ground beef and onions and add it to the cheese mixture once cooled.  Be creative.

  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated - divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  1. In a large bowl mix all the cheeses (1/2 cup Parmesan) with the egg, garlic, and spinach. Add any additional item(s) you want.
  2. In a 13 x 9 pan spread a thin layer of pasta sauce (add 1-2 tablespoons of water to the sauce).
