Alfredo Lasagna Roll-Ups

When I saw the idea for rolled up lasagna on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it. Instead of making my regular lasagna recipe for the filling/sauce, I used my favorite alfredo recipe and chicken instead!
I made up my own version, and it turned out surprisingly FANTASTIC!

 

I will tell you how to make these babies in just a few, but first here is the recipe I love for
Alfredo Sauce:
1 pint heavy cream • 2 Tablespoon cream cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder • 1 stick of butter
1/2 - 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

In saucepan, combine butter, cream & cream cheese. Simmer until it's all melted & mixed well.
Add Parmesan & garlic powder. Simmer for 15-20 minutes on low.

Now that you have that ready, let's make some lasagna roll-ups!

To make 6 roll-ups, I used:
8x8" glass pan
6 lasagna noodles
alfredo sauce
2-3 chicken tenderloins
Italian seasoning
Mozzarella, Parmesan or whatever cheese you like

Prep pan by spraying with a little bit of non-stick spray and pour some alfredo sauce in to just cover the bottom of the pan. Start cooking the chicken with a little bit of Italian seasoning, and it helps to start boiling a pan of water for noodles at the same time.

When chicken is done, cut into small (slightly smaller than bite-size) pieces and split into 6 piles. When the water is at a rolling boil, drop in noodles and cook for about 8-10 minutes (or until al dente). Drain and rinse with cold water to prevent them from sticking to each other. (*Very Important!*) Lay out the noodles on some wax paper & blot dry with a paper towel.

Spread a little bit of alfredo sauce over each noodle. (Don't put too much or it will make a bigger mess for you to clean up later.) Sprinkle a little bit of Italian seasoning. Take one of your little groups of chicken and try to spread them out evenly over the noodle. Add a little bit of cheese. To roll up, start at one end and roll the noodle over the toppings. They can be hard to handle if they weren't dried. You won't be able to roll them tight and will have to lift the noodle a little over the chicken, otherwise you will end up pushing all the toppings out the other side.

Place the roll-up in the pan, seam-side down so they don't come undone. Once they are all in the pan, pour some more alfredo sauce overtop & try to get in between the roll-ups so they won't stick together. Sprinkle a little Italian seasoning if you want, then add cheese on top. Then bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted on top.


And that's it! Super easy, and so yummy!!
I love how they are single-sized, so you don't end up with a bunch of leftovers and they are great to pack in a lunch or freeze for later.

  42. Oh I cant wait to make this, But I will be Adding Mushrooms and Broccoli and I might try Shrimp instead of chicken. Yum Yum :)

  43. We made this last night, and LOVED the alfredo sauce. So good. We cheated and just soaked the lasagna, so they weren't as tender as they could've been, but that was totally our fault. Next time, we'll do it correctly. Or just use the chicken and alfredo sauce with some penne pasta. Either way, we are adding this to the rotation! Thanks!
