Trio Cheese Lasagna Roll UP

1 lb. lasagna noodles
32 oz. pasta sauce
2 lb. ricotta cheese
1 lb. mozzarella cheese, grated or diced small
1/2 C. Parmesan cheese, divided
1/4 C. chopped parsley
2 eggs, beaten


Preheat over to 350 degrees.Cook lasagna noodles in boiling salted water until almost done. Rinse in cold water, then toss with some olive oil (about 2 Tbs.) to keep from sticking. Cut each noodle into three equal pieces. In a bowl, combine ricotta, 1 C. mozzarella, 1/4 C. Parmesan, eggs and parsley. Spoon some of the ricotta mixture (roughly 2 Tbs.) of the mozzarella on each piece of lasagna noodle and roll up. In a 9x13-inch baking dish , place 1 C. of sauce on the bottom. If there are any leftover noodles, place them over the sauce. Place 1/2 of the roll-ups, seam side down,on the noodles. Then sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella, then 1/2 of the sauce. Then the remaining roll-ups, sauce, mozzarella and the 1/4 C. Parmesan. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes longer. Makes about 32 roll-ups.

Freezing directions: when lasagna is ready to bake,cover tightly with foil and freeze.Do not defrost before baking.It must be baked from frozen state 2 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.


  1. Hi Sue,
    I like those pretzels and that's how I eat my pancakes too. We do buy our garlic bread already frozen. The Trio Cheese Lasagna Roll UP, really sounds good. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us. Have a safe and fun Happy Halloween with your family! :-)

  2. Oh! I haven't made lasagna roll ups in years! I need to make some!

  3. Hello Sue!

    This sounds like a very good recipe. Like you, we always make use of 3 cheeses when we make lasagna. I haven't tried these rolled ones though. I'll definitely give it a try one of these days.

  4. That recipe sounds great! Going to have to give it a try!

  5. I love blueberry pancakes when they are in season here.

  6. That recipe sounds great...and easy! I'm going to have to make it this week. I think I have everything in the cabinet!

  7. Never heard of lasagna rollups. I have to put that on my list of things to try.
