Easy Lasagna Roll Ups

This easy cheesy lasagna recipe can be made in one pan for a larger family, such as mine, or split in to two pans, eat one and freeze one for later!

Easy Lasagna Roll UpsI have posted a few lasagna recipes in the past.  This one is my kids favorite.  I’ve probably said that about the others as well.  Face it we just like ourselves some lag-zag-nah round here!  But honestly, this one IS our favorite.  The sauce is simple, there’s not too much cheese but just a enough, and well the little roll-ups are just plain cute!

Easy Lasagna Roll-ups are basically a spin on my moms lasagna.  I grew up eating lasagna made with cottage cheese, cripes I never even heard of ricotta cheese until after I was married!  If you are used to using ricotta cheese and for some reason the idea of cottage cheese in lasagna freaks you out, get over yourself and give this a try!  You would know the difference if someone didn’t tell you.  Plus if you are trying to keep grocery costs down or you are on a tight budget cottage cheese is more cost effective and has less fat than ricotta.

Get started by cooking your sauce, and boiling your noodles.

    Looks awesome and I’ll bet even my picky child would love it! Think it freezes well? Making a double batch seems like a good idea.

      Yes it freezes perfectly! If you have a small family 4 or less this recipe will make two small pans. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day, Sheila

    For some reason, I like making the roll ups compared to the traditional method.
