Delicious Dinner Recipe: 4 Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups

These are a crowd favorite!

 

Ingredients

6-8 Lasagna noodles, cooked al-dente

1 ¼ cup spinach, chopped

Salt & pepper (optional)

1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese

For The Meat Sauce*

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb bulk sausage
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 large jar pasta sauce

*Chef’s Note: the meat sauce portion is a double recipe. I do this because ground meat is most often sold in 1 lb. increments. I simply freeze the other half and use at a later date. I will either make additional roll-ups or use the sauce as a savory meat sauce for regular pasta. This is just a little way I save time and effort in the kitchen without sacrificing on quality.

For The Cheese Mixture

  • 10 oz. ricotta cheese
  • 10 oz. cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 egg

 Cooking And Assembly Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Prep 1 (Meat Sauce)

  • In a skillet cook beef, sausage and onion over medium-high heat, then drain.
  • Stir in pasta sauce. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat & allow to cool slightly.

Prep 2 (Noodles)

  • Meanwhile, cook lasagna noodles so they’re al-dente. Set aside.

Prep 3 (Cheese Mixture)

  • In small bowl, mix ricotta, cottage cheese, italian seasoning & and egg.

Assembly Of Roll-Ups

  • Spread about 2 tbsp. cheese mixture over each cooked lasagna noodle (keep 1 inch clean on one end, it will be less messy).
  • Spoon about 1/4 cup meat mixture over ricotta mixture on each.
  • Sprinkle on parmesan cheese & spinach.
  • Roll up firmly toward clean end.

Putting In Dish And Cooking

  • Spray dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place roll-ups, seam side down in dish.
  • Cover with 3/4 cup meat sauce.
  • Generously sprinkle on mozzarella cheese.
  • Cover with foil, bake 30-40 min until hot & bubbly.
  • Remove foil & bake uncovered 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is lightly browned.
