Lasagna Roll-Ups Recipe

Jump to Recipe

My 3 year old has recently become very independent.  She wants to do everything herself, including all things food.  This makes for some contention in the kitchen.  As much as every mother loves having her very ‘helpful’ children help with dinner, some recipes are definitely easier for little hands to help prepare.  This is that recipe.   You can’t mess it up and it doesn’t matter if it looks pretty in the end, because each person gets their own individual lasagna.

Lasagna Roll-Ups Recipe

Start by boiling your lasagna noodles according to package directions.  Drain and lay them out on a piece of wax paper to dry.

In the meantime, chop your veggies. Spinach and zucchini are what I chose.  I chopped my spinach very fine and the zucchini pieces were pretty small as well. I used:

  • 2 small zucchinis
  • 2-3 cups spinach

Next in a bowl mix:

  • 1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese part-skim
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • Your chopped veggies (spinach and zucchini)

Spread about 2 tablespoons of this mixture on each noodle.

Next spoon about 2-3 tablespoons of Marinara sauce in each Ramekin (or small oven safe glass dish)

Roll up each lasagna noodle and place with the end up inside your ramekin.  (I rolled two noodles in each one)

Top with more sauce and a little cheese.

Place on a baking tray and bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes until cheese is bubbly and melted.

Excellent recipe for young chefs in training. My son substituted chopped brussel sprouts for his meal and used zucchini and spinach for the rest of the family. Great recipe. Thank you!
