Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Roll Ups Recipe

I love traditional lasagna with layers and layers of cheese, sauce, and vegetables. But my new favorite way to enjoy lasagna is in roll up form. You know, like fruit roll ups, but way better because it’s lasagna! Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Roll Ups are fun to make and fun to eat!

I love making a big pan of lasagna roll ups so we can eat it all week-the leftovers are great. I have also put lasagna roll ups in the freezer and they freeze beautifully! Big time bonus! And I have made Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Roll Ups for dinner parties. I can prepare the meal in advance, which is perfect for stress-free entertaining.  It’s always nice to get compliments on what you spent hours slaving over…oh wait, you don’t have to slave over this recipe. We will keep that our little secret:)

How to Make Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Roll Ups

To make the Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Roll Ups, boil the lasagna noodles and make the spinach artichoke ricotta filling. Spread the filling evenly over the lasagna noodles and top with mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce. We always use my Easy Marinara Sauce. It’s the best and I promise it’s super easy!

Next, it’s time to roll! This is the fun part! If you have kids, get them to help with this step. They will love it! Caleb is still too young to help, so I had Josh help instead:)

Spoon some marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 pan and place the fat lasagna rolls in the pan. It is ok if they touch a little. Top the rolls with sauce and more cheese!

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
 

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Line the bottom with marinara sauce, about ½ cup. Set aside.
  • Take about ¼ 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.
  • 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.

Notes

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. Yummy! I have always wanted to make lasagna roll ups! You make it look easy!!!

    1. Thanks! Sometimes it’s hard to take process photos with our little pea running around, but I will try to do more:)

  3. Love the idea of adding the spinach and artichoke flare to lasagna! This looks just to die for. Can’t wait to try!

  4. Yum, love spinach and artichoke! These lasagna roll ups look so pretty and definitely adding this on my must make list! Thanks Maria!

  5. I made a similar version once and it was such a big hit plus it was so much fun to make. I don’t know why I don’t do rolls more often!

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

    What are your freezing instructions?

  7. We are HUGE lasagna roll up fans here… totally loving the spinach artichoke combo! Genius!

  8. 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.

  9. Spinach and artichoke is my favorite filling for lasagna roll-ups! Love that you can freeze these!

  10. 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!

  11. Lasagna roll ups are so fun to make and delicious too! These look good and I love that they have artichoke in them.

  17. Gorgeous! Not a word I would usually use to describe lasagna but it is that- gorgeous. Love that it’s a time saver too Maria.

  18. 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!!

  19. Just about died and went to heaven Maria. πŸ™‚ These are right up my alley! I love lasagna roll ups. And spinach lasagna! Making these ASAP my friend.

  20. Great idea with the addition of artichokes and spinach, so springy! This looks like a much more manageable form of lasagna.

  21. I actually started making lasagna roll-ups last year and I’m never going back! The spinach artichoke combo is perfect for lasagna! Yum!

  22. I make spinach lasagna rolls all the time. I’ll have to add the artichoke in next time. Sounds yummy.

  23. These look fabulous. You can never go wrong with the combination of spinach and artichoke in my book!

  24. 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.

  25. Oh, this is genius…and they look SO, SO good! I love that you can make ahead! My mom always did that with her lasagna….said it was better that way. Cannot wait to make this!

  26. These roll ups look delicious! Takes up a lot less time than building a lasagna. Will be giving this a try. Thank you for the recipe.

  27. I haven’t tried making lasagna roll ups before. This one’s gonna be my first. It does look fun and delicious.

  28. 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™‚

  29. This looks so delicious! I love lasagna, roll-ups, rollatinis, you name it. I was thinking of making stuffed shells but this looks simpler, neater, and even tastier with the addition of artichokes.

  30. I’ve always wanted to make lasagna roll-ups and this was just the push I needed! They look awesome!

  31. 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!

  32. what gorgeous pictures…I love lasagna, and my fussy one does also – roll-ups make it so much easier to do

  33. This looks amazing! I’ve been meaning to make lasagna roll-ups for years, but have not gotten around to it yet πŸ™‚ I love the spinach artichoke twist. Thanks for the great idea!

  34. 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.

  38. these look absolutely delicious! My husband claims to dislike artichoke, but I think I am going to have to try these anyway and convert him. Thanks!

  39. 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!

  40. 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.

  41. 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!

    1. I always do a few extra in case some break or tear. I always use a 9×13 pan. You can squish them in if you want!

  42. 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!

  43. 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.

  44. 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..

    I did not make this recipe but my daughter did. OUTSTANDING!!!!! Thus I am here to get the recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  46. 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?

  47. These are delicious! They were easy to make and the quick marinara sauce is a winner!! So glad I made them.

  48. 5 stars
    I made them yesterday for dinner. I followed the recipe exactly and used my own sauce. I thought it might take less time to put together than the regular lasagna but it really took about the same time. However, serving the lasagna was so much neater and easier. I had one roll up and my husband had several. The flavors were excellent and I will definitely make again. Can’t wait until we can have people over so I can share with friends and family!

  49. I’ve stored this recipe as one of my favorites. Sometimes I make them in advance a freeze them. My husband don’t eat meat so I’ll fix this and have fish for him and chicken for the rest of the family.

    Been using this recipe for years and came back today to check the calories (love it even more now). I love the rollup because it is basically proportioned! So versatile too, can add meat and other veggies into individual rollups so that everyone enjoys it. I usually have too much for one pan and will make a few extra to full my 8×8 pan as well. Thanks for a family fav 3 years running!
