Lasagna Roll Ups

Prep Time: 20 mins | Cook Time: 30 mins | Makes 8 Rolls

  • 8 Lasagna noodles
  • Jar of Marinara Sauce- pick your poison
  • 1 lb. of Ground Turkey Meat
  • 1 (15 oz.) Container Ricotta Cheese (I usually go for the “part-skim” variety)
  • 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
  • 1 Onion, sliced and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced up
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Salt + pepper
The Steps
  1. Brown meat: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add a tbs. of olive oil in a skillet, and start browning the turkey meat with a little salt and pepper over medium heat. You want to cook the meat about 3/4 of the way- it can still be a teeny bit pink. Place the browned meat into a mixing bowl, but keep the leftover juices in the pan.

  2. Saute onions: Toss the diced onions straight into the same pan, and get the onions nice and caramelized. Once they’ve cooked for about 10 or so minutes, you can place those into the same mixing bowl as the turkey.

  3. Make filling: Add the whole container of ricotta cheese in the same bowl, along with the parmesan cheese and minced garlic. Toss some salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (I go for about a teaspoon).

  4. Boil noodles: Put a stock pot full of water on the stove at high heat, and once the water is good and boiling toss in about a palmful of salt. Place no more than two lasagna noodles in the boiling water at a time, as they like to stick together. Once they’ve boiled for about 7 or so minutes (they need to be pretty bendy), place them on a baking sheet that’s been lined in foil, to dry off. In the meantime, make sure you are continuing to boil the rest of the noodles.

  5. Load on filling: After they have dried a bit, you can start to line the filling down the middle of the noodles, leaving about 2 inches at one side of the noodle.

  6. Prep your baking dish: Spray a 13×9″ glass baking dish with cooking spray, and pour enough of the marinara sauce to cover the bottom of the dish. Now that all of your noodles are all filled up, take one end and roll the noodle up and place the seam side down into the dish. Continue with the rest of the rolls, but just make sure none of the rolls touch each other in the dish!

  7. Cover and bake: Pour the remainder of the marinara over top of the noodles, and then follow with the mozzarella cheese and then sprinkle some more parmesan. Cover the beauties up with foil and place them in the oven. Set your timer for 20 minutes, and once that time is up remove the foil and continue baking for about 10 more minutes. The rolls should be nice and bubbly, and the cheese should be all melted and gooey! Cool slightly before serving.
