Lasagna Roll Ups

Jacky Friedman


I have been making these roll ups for 26 years. My daughter was 10 years old when I first made them. She loved them so much she asked me for the recipe to take home so her stepmom could make them.

1 lb
ground beef
15 oz jar(s)
spaghetti sauce
12 oz pkg
lasagna noodles, cooked
1 pinch
1 pinch
6-8 oz
ricotta cheese
16 oz
mozarella cheese, shredded


1In 10 inch skillet brown ground beef. Drain.
Add spaghetti sauce, salt and pepper. Turn off heat.
At same time, boil water on stove in large pot. Add lasagna noodles and cook until just flexible but not fully cooked.
2To make roll ups.
lay a lasagna noodle onto a plate or any flat surface longer than the length of the noodle.
With large spoon, lay a line of ground beef mix down center of noodle almost the width but leave a little noodle on the sides.
Next, lay a line of ricotta cheese on top of beef. Then do same with some mozzarella cheese.
3Roll lasagna noodle into a jelly type roll. Place in a microwavable storage bowl outside edge facing down so there is enough room for beef and cheese overflow.
Spoon some beef mix on top of noodle. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top to taste. I like a lot of cheese.
Seal with lid and set aside. You can also put 2 roll ups in the same container if it is long enough.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all lasagna noodles, beef and cheese are gone.
4After all roll ups are done, you now have a choice.
You can either put them in the microwave on high for one minute with lid off one container at a time. You can put them in the fridge for later use or you can freeze them for later. Will last in freezer for several months.
If you freeze them, make sure they are fully thawed before putting in micro to reheat.
Eat and enjoy.
