Lasagna Roll-Ups

Here's the Dish

I love lasagna… In fact I like it so much that I’m always trying to think up new way’s to prepare it in a figure friendly way! One of my family’s favorite way that I make lasagna is my No Noodles About it~ Low-Carb Lasagna! However, these Lasagna Roll-Ups are one of my personal favorite ways to have a ‘lightened up’ version of this classically rich dish…

This recipe is a wonderful way to enjoy lasagna, because each ‘roll-up’ is packed with protein (and veggies)! Since each serving only has one noodle, they are only 13 grams of whole grain carbohydrates per roll! If your family enjoys lasagna as much as mine does, these lasagna roll-ups are sure to be a hit with your family as well!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 50-55 Minutes.

1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1 cup of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of the baking dish. Set aside.

2

In a large pot, bring water to a boil, and cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. (I recommend cooking a few more than 6, just in case one breaks or tears).

3

Meanwhile, in a medium size bowl, mix together meat, 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce, cottage cheese, spinach, 1/4 cup parmesan, and spices.

4

When noodles are cooked, drain in a colander, and lay on a kitchen towel to dry. Start assembling lasagna roll ups by spreading 1/6 of the meat mixture over each individual lasagna noodle.

5

Roll noodle, and place seam side down in baking dish.

6

Pour the remaining sauce over the noodles, and sprinkle remaining parmesan cheese, (and mozzarella cheese if desired), over the top.

7

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes covered with foil, remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

8

Remove, let cool, serve and enjoy!

Love these! I like the idea of having individually wrapped little guys instead of the option to have a GIANT slice. Definitely helps with my waistline. haha

Katie, I would like to make these for a friend who just had a baby. Can I construct the noodles the way you describe and then she can refrigerate or freeze until she wants to make them?

How do you get your chicken texture to be so fine??? I chop at it the entire time I am cooking it and I still have “chunks” in there! I also tried this with Italian chicken sausage and it was delicious too!!

What was the name of the noodles you use? I can’t seem to find them in any of my stores not even Safeway. Why did you purée the cottage cheese?

Katie Farrell said:

Hi Karen! You sure can! :) Simply make the recipe and just stop before the baking, or you could bake them, and she could refrigerate or freeze them and simply de-thaw them right before eating them!
