Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll Ups Recipe

Sometimes you just aren’t in the mood for red meat and red sauce. Am I right? I am going to admit something to you about me as a cook – I am a creature of habit. And baked ziti is on my LIST of things to make. It is a HOUSE STAPLE.

When I recognize that I’ve served it too many times in a row and my children are starting to resent marinara sauce, I switch it up with this chicken alfredo lasagna roll ups recipe, my alfredo sauce spaghetti, or to my stuffed zucchini lasagna recipe.

Again, it’s the same concept, but an entirely different experience which changes the mood and uplifts spirits after a long day of school.

And who doesn’t love CHEESE and lots of it? Ooey gooey goodness rolled up and around spinach and grilled chicken. Yes and yes! You can absolutely have a lot of fun with lasagna roll ups, especially chicken alfredo roll ups.

So, here’s what you need to get this dish off the ground. I would say the only surprise ingredient is cream cheese. Everything else is pretty standard.

Lasagna Roll Ups Ingredients:

  • 9 lasagna noodles, cooked, drained and rinsed with cold water
  • 1 brick, 8 oz, cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package, 10 oz, frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped chicken (cooked)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 jar, 15 oz, 9×9 square baking pan
  • chopped fresh parsley (optional for serving)

Alfredo Lasagna Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 and grease a 9×9 square baking pan. Before we dive into this chicken alfredo lasagna roll ups recipe – here’s a quick note about the lasagna. For this recipe, I made 9 rolls.

To do this, I used a 12 oz box of lasagna noodles that had 18 noodles inside. When you are cooking your pasta, try to make a few extra noodles because some tend to break while cooking or handling.

Better to be prepared. You might not use all the noodles you cook in the end, but I rather have more than not enough. Ok, let’s move on.

Pour 1/2 container of alfredo sauce into the pan and spread with a spoon on the bottom. Set aside.

Add cream cheese, spinach, garlic, chicken, salt and pepper and mix well. Stir in Parmesan cheese and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese. Mix well.

Place one lasagna noodle onto a flat surface and use a 3 tablespoon scoop to scoop 6 tablespoons of the mixture onto the center of the noodle. Press it until about 1/2″ thick and about 2″ from each end of the noodle (this makes it much easier to roll up).

Fold in one flap of the pasta and roll up the lasagna. Place seam side down onto the prepared pan. Repeat until the pan is full and you have 9 roll ups.

Top with remaining sauce and 1 cup of Mozzarella cheese. At this point, you will be able to truly see your chicken alfredo lasagna roll ups coming together.

baked lasagna

Bake your alfredo lasagna for 20 minutes or until heated through. If you want a crispier top, broil your chicken alfredo lasagna roll ups for 1-2 minutes – but only if desired. Once you are done with all of the heat, top your chicken alfredo lasagna with chopped fresh parsley.

This Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups recipe serves 4 (2 rolls per person).

What Should I Serve With The Lasagna Roll Ups?

To be honest with you, this is a very hearty recipe. It has protein, carbs, and a vegetable – all rolled into one (literally). I would just serve a side salad and call it a day. If you are Italian and Grandma is coming over, maybe also have a fresh loaf of bread because that is how we do.

If you are feeling really creative, try making my cranberry brie bread because it is SO GOOD – especially during the colder months.

Can I Use No-Boil Lasagna Noodles?

Oven ready lasagna is a great option, but not for this recipe – sorry. But you know what? I actually use no-boil noodles for my regular lasagna and they taste great! So, if you haven’t tried them already, please do. Just make sure you cover EVERY INCH with sauce – otherwise, they get super crispy and feel like paper.

Can I Reheat Roll Up Recipes?

Girl, yes! Any lasagna roll ups are perfect for reheating and this chicken alfredo lasagna recipe is no different. In fact, my husband thinks reheated chicken lasagna roll ups taste BETTER.

But… good luck having leftovers. LOL! That’s the problem with this recipe. If you are giving each guest 2 lasagna roll ups, you might not have anything left to reheat.

Is Lasagna Considered The Main Dish Or An Appetizer?

Ok, let’s talk. This question depends on your family. When it is a holiday, I serve lasagna as an appetizer. Actually, I serve it as course TWO. First, I put out the finger food – or the first wave of appetizers. Then everyone sits down for their first official plate of food from the kitchen. That is always lasagna.

But here’s the thing – on Thanksgiving, lasagna is actually the third course for my family! We eat it right before the turkey but after a bowl of soup.

I am Maltese and Italian – so very Mediterranean. Not everyone eats this way during the holidays, but lasagna is NEVER the main dish on special occasions.

HOWEVER, on a regular night with my family, I make lasagna as the main dish ALL THE TIME. We don’t overeat like how we do on a holiday during the week. That would be insane. The holidays are one thing and Mondays are… Mondays.

So, the answer to this question is… both. It depends on how you want to serve it and how many people are coming over.

    I think I gained five pounds looking at and reading about these. I love Fettuccine Alfredo, so I can’t wait to (try to) make these. I’m not a very good cook, so this may end up being mixed up in a bowl, but it’ll surely still taste yummy?
