Reviews for Favorite Lasagna Roll-Ups
"Made these a few times. Liked them just as they are."
"Add one package of frozen chopped spinach, cooked in microwave, with a dash of nutmeg."
"This is a starter/ anything goes, great recipe! I have used ground beef, leftover rotisserie chicken, Italian sausage, whatever I have on hand. Change the spaghetti sauce and cheese to your liking."
"My picky 6 year old loved it, it's a keeper for sure!"
"Used ground beef, but still good, simple, "make-ahead" meal. I made it the day before and baked it the next day."
"Very easy to make and taste great"
"I followed the recipe. I think the cream cheese and cheddar cheese made it too rich. Next time, I will try a more traditional recipe."
"I made the recipe just as written and we all loved it. I may try to sneak some spinach into the sausage mixture next time I make it :-)"
"This was great and so easy. I had a mix of regular lasagna noodles and ready to bake. I used both, but the ready to bake allowed more flavor to come through. This is a keeper."
"I have made this a few times, it is delicious. It's nice having the lasagna in individual rolls. This has a simpler flavor than traditional Italian lasagna, but is very good!"
"My daughter did not care for lasagna until I made easy Lasagna rolls. Now she loves it."
"my family was hesitant since it wasn't the traditional, but once they ate it, and realized how quick and easy it was, they asked me to make it again"
"This was delicious! I added a chopped onion to the turkey as it was cooking. The cream cheese combined with the spices in the italian turkey sausage was very tasty. i will definitely make again."
"Turned out awesome. Used a spinach florentine pasta sauce,mozzeralla cheese. Sweet italian turkey sausage. Even the beef eaters went back for seconds!"
"Very good. Served to guests and they went back for seconds and thirds. Modified the filling to make less fattening and made a batch that was beef only vs. combo of beef and Italian ground turkey. Added leftover filling to sauce in the baking dish to serve over the rolls. Again, a big hit!"
"I've always wanted to try making lasagna rolls instead of a big pan of lasagna. I did not stick with the recipe (I rarely do) but these were great. They were huge hit with my family and I will definitely make again."
"I have made this time and again and it never fails to get compliments. I do make some alterations, however. My husband loves his beef, so I do half turkey sausage and half ground beef. The flavors blend very nicely, it stores well (if there are leftovers), and it is very affordable. This is definitely a family favorite. :)"
"The entire family raved about this meal. They said it was one of the best ever and had no idea how simple it was to make. It is elegant enough and tastes good enough to serve to guests."
"I used all reduced fat ingredients and it came put fabulously. Also I layered like a normal lasagna and it came out very well and made it much easier!"
"My family loved this recipe. Very delicious!"
"My son hates ricotta cheese, so this was a great way of making lasagna, minus the ricotta. Yum!"
"This was yummy and pretty quick. I used lean ground Itailian turkey and 1/3 fat cream cheese to lighten it up. Will make again for sure."
"These were excellent! Very tasty. I did add some minced garlic to the turkey sausage towards the end of browning it. There were great. I am sure you could use traditional pork sausage if you prefer. You could also use any cheese of your liking. These are going to be a regular at my house now. Also, I bet they freeze well- I plan to try that as well."
"It was delicious! I used mozzarella cheese to make it taste more like lasagna."
"Doesn't taste much like lasagna next time I will use different cheeses."
"I usually don't use turkey saussage for cooking... but this recipe was easy and very good. I will make this often. My husband loved it."
"This was awesome! Great favor. Definately will make again!!"
