Want homemade lasagna in a fun new QUICK presentation? Try these lasagna roll-ups!


  • 1 box lasagna noodles
  • Drop or two olive oil
  • 2 jars store bought or homemade spaghetti sauce
  • 8 oz. mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pkg. Italian sausage, pealed out of its casing
  • 1 (16 oz.) container Ricotta cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9x13 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

Boil lasagna noodles in a large sauce pot. Add a drop or two of olive oil to help keep the noodles from sticking. Boil until the firmness you like. Remove from heat and drain water. Add cold water to the pot and let it sit to cool.

Peel Italian sausage out of its casing, brown in a skillet, and drain off the oil. In a separate bowl, mix ricotta cheese, egg, and the cooked sausage, and stir well.

Take one noodle out of the pot and place on a plate. Spray the bottom of the cooking dish. Add several spoonfuls of the cheese/egg/sausage mixture down the center of the lasagna noodle, almost down to the end, and gently roll. Place in the dish seam down, and continue with the rest of the mixture. You will end up with around 10 rolls - I usually run out of mixture before the noodles, so if you want more, mix up more mixture!


Pour the sauce over the noodles and sprinkle the cheese over the finished product. Save some cheese for when you are serving (we call that "bonus cheese" at my house!). Bake covered at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Serve with a salad and bread - delicious!

This looks good, Millie! Am going to try it. But since I'm not one of those a creative, free-wheeling cooks, I'm wishing you could specify the size of sausage pkg. and size of spaghetti sauce jars . . .

Great Idea! With this method I can make my favorite lasagna recipe and freeze them individually, for a quick lunch or dinner.

1 pkg sausage is usually about 5 pieces, around 19 oz. As for the sauce, it really depends on how much sauce/gravy you want.

Hope this helps.
