Y'all are in for a treat today! My Chicken and Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups are so good and I know they will quickly become a favorite in your home! Even better, you can choose to use red or white sauce (or both!) for additional options.
These roll-ups are quick to prepare and allow you to have the yummy goodness of a lasagna in any size batch you want. The below recipe will make 6 roll-ups but can so easily be doubled or tripled.
Chicken and Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups
Here's what you need:
2 large chicken breasts (or equivalent), chopped
2c fresh spinach or 1c cooked spinach, drained and chopped
1c ricotta cheese
1c mozzarella cheese, shredded
2c sauce (I used half red and half white)
6 lasagna noodles, cooked
1tsp minced garlic or garlic powder
1tsp dried oregano
1/2tsp Italian seasoning
Salt & pepper
Cook and chop chicken. Steam fresh spinach with a 1/4c water, drain and chop. In bowl, mix together egg, ricotta, half of the mozzarella, half the oregano and all other seasonings. Stir in chopped chicken and spinach. Spread a thin layer of sauce in your baking pan. Lay out noodles and spread a thick layer of your chicken mixture on each noodle. Carefully roll them up and place vertically in your baking dish so you can see the spiral (see pic below). Pour remaining sauce over the roll-up and sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce then sprinkle remaining oregano on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes until edges are golden.
Tips from your Top Goose
Be sure to squeeze out any excess water from your spinach so your roll-ups aren't runny. I recommend using a cheese cloth or patting them dry with paper towels.
You can use any size or style baking dish you like but its important that you fill the dish so your roll-ups don't unravel or fall over. I like to my CorningWare 1.5 qt dish because its deeper and holds 6 roll-ups perfectly. If you don't have CorningWare yet, you'll thank me!
This is a great recipe to use leftover chicken or substitute with rotisserie chicken for a quick and delicious comfort meal!
Homemade sauces are always my favorite but you can use canned sauces here for time savings. I will be posting my garlic parmesan and red sauce recipes here shortly.
