Ingredients

  • 12 lasagna noodles
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 10- ounces frozen spinach thawed, drained, and squeeze to remove water
  • 1 cup chopped canned or jarred artichoke hearts
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 cups Easy Marinara Sauce or your favorite sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the salt and cook the lasagna noodles to al dente, according to package directions. Drain and carefully lay the lasagna noodles out flat on a large piece of parchment paper. Let sit to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, egg, garlic, spinach, artichoke hearts, parmesan cheese, basil, crushed red pepper, and nutmeg. Stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Line the bottom with marinara sauce, about 1/2 cup. Set aside.
  4. Take about 1/4 cup of the ricotta spinach mixture and spread it evenly onto each lasagna noodle. Top each noodle with 2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese and 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce. Carefully roll the noodles up and place them in the prepared pan. Top the lasagna rolls with the remaining marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Spray a large sheet of foil with cooking spray and cover the pan.
  5. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted on top. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
  6. Note: To prepare the lasagna rolls in advance, roll them up, add the sauce and cheese and cover with foil and place in the fridge until ready to bake. I've made them a day before baking and they were still great. To freeze, bake and let cool to room temperature. Place in a freezer container and freeze. Reheat in the microwave. You can place a whole pan in the freezer and heat back up in the oven, but I like to freeze the rolls in individual servings for easy lunches and dinners.

  1. YUM! Spinach and artichoke rock together. I’m actually having a dinner party on Friday and am making traditional italian and mexican lasagnas. Gotta love a make ahead recipe!!

  2. Love the post! Thank you for including more photos! Seeing meals in action is so helpful!

    What are your freezing instructions?

  3. This looks delicious! I love the addition of the artichokes.

    If you make it ahead of time, do you make it completely and then cover it and put it in the refrigerator until your ready to bake it? And I, too, would love the freezing instructions. I’m horrible at knowing how to freeze stuff.

  4. I love rollups even though I hardly ever make them (usually it’s just traditional lasagna). But I have to tell you, everytime I make lasagna I always make one extra noodle, save a little bit of each ingredient, make one for myself once the lasagna is made and then just sit at the island and snack on it – not even baked. It’s the best thing!

  5. I’ve made lasagna roll ups before and yours look super yummy. I love that they look so fancy but they aren’t that hard to make. I love your vegetarian recipes!

  6. Definitely going on my list for this weekend, although portobellas and zucchini are on sale at my local market, so I might switch up the fillings a little, and make some just plain for my two picky eaters. Yum!!

  7. I just made these this weekend! Except I hadn’t thought of artichoke before. I’ll have to do that, because I love artichokes. However, I did put in a single shredded carrot and fresh spinach instead of frozen.

  8. I love lasagna and making it healthier is always a challenge. I never thought of adding artichoke before, but now I guess I have to make it! πŸ™‚

  9. Hey Maria, I’ve never seen lasagna roll ups until this recipe…they look so good. What are your thoughts on using fresh spinach? I have a whole bin sitting in my fridge. Thanks!

  10. Perfect recipe! Glad I found it today. Unexpected guests in town and coming over for dinner tonight… So happy I can prepare this dish in advance. Thank you.

  11. I would like to make this and take to a pot luck dinner. Do you think it would work to cut the lasagna noodles in half in order to make more servings? Recipe rocks!!!

  12. I made these for Christmas dinner and they were wonderful! They make a great presentation and everyone loved them. Oh, and they are also fun to make! I left out the artichokes and used fresh basil leaves instead of dried, but I otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!

  13. This is perfect. This will be my first vegetarian meal for the year (trying to reduce my meat intake ^_^.). I think the family would love this.

  14. This looks delicious! I maybe overlooking something, but it recipe calls for 12 lasagna noodles, but in the photo of the dish, there are only 8 rolls? Do you know if 12 will fit in 9×13 pan? Thanks!

  15. Thanks so much for your quick reply!! I’m planning on making them for tonight’s dinner and am not an experienced cook so I really appreciate your extra feedback!

  16. Just rolled these up and put them in the fridge to bake for tomorrow:) It was hard for me to get 12 of these in though.. I had to fill up the space in the middle too. But this thing tasted great raw too, haha, so it doesn’t matter if the baking doesn’t get all the way through- I hope.

  17. HI..Β 
    Thanks fir the recipe. Have you ever had extras that you wanted to freeze (before cooking) ? If yes what did you freeze them in to prevent freezer burn?Β 
    Thanks again..
    Jules

  18. These look delish! I’m going to make these and freeze in single serving portions for my son in university. Do you have directions for reheating in a microwave?
