Lasagna Rolls

I made a different take on lasagna for dinner one night last week. I didn’t feel like making a regular lasagna so I made it into rolls!

This is what I used.

To start I boiled the noodles according to the package directions and then browned the ground beef and onions in the microwave on high heat until it was fully cooked and the juices ran clear.

I drained the ground beef and then added all but one cup of the pasta sauce.

I poured about 1/2 cup diced tomatoes in the bottom of the prepared baking pan.

Once the lasagna noodles had been cooked and cooled, I laid them on a sheet of parchment paper on the counter to begin the process of filling the rolls.

I mixed the cottage cheese and eggs until smooth and spread that mixture over the lasagna noodles.

I sprinkled the lasagna noodles next with the grated cheese.

And then the ground beef mixture.

I rolled the lasagna noodles up, jelly style, until all of them were rolls and placed them in my aluminum foil lined, greased baking pan.

I took the “leavings” that fell out of the rolls while in the process for rolling them and added it to the remaining pasta sauce and spread this over top of the rolls.

And then sprinkled the tops with the remaining grated cheese and the oregano.

I cooked them at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, until they were heated through and then served!

  1. I love making things ahead and freezing some for a future meal. This is perfect for that. Much easier than freezing a whole pan of lasagna. And I’m sure it thaws and reheats much faster too!
    Thanks! Such good ideas.

    — oh, just read your comment above… tuna casserole rolls?! That is a most excellent idea. Looking forward to that one.

    • I like to make ahead too. When I was still able to go to work I would spend one weekend a month and make dinners to freeze for “the boys.” I wasn’t home at dinner time so it made it easier for them (and on my kitchen!!!)
      It does thaw and reheat faster, not being a solid frozen lasagna!
      I will try to remember to get the stuff for the tuna roll ones soon and post it!!!
