Spinach Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll Ups

Spinach Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll Ups.  Lasagna noodles are rolled up with a creamy cheese, spinach, and chicken filling and topped with a thick creamy Alfredo sauce for one amazingly delicious pasta dish.

There are pasta dishes… and there are PASTA dishes!

I’m talking about the type of pasta dish that makes you think you’re in Italy sitting on a veranda, violin music softly playing, surround by beautiful Italian accents. One bite and your living your dream vacation. (Okay I’m outta here…see ya later! lol)

Sigh! Wouldn’t it be awesome if it were that easy? That is one of the many things I LOVE about food. It can transport you through taste and smell.

This is one of those dishes! (I’m pretty easy though…one snow cone and I’m on the beaches of Florida!)

Spinach Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll-Up

Spinach Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll Ups are luxuriously rich. (I kinda wanna double dog dare ya to eat two! lol)

They are filled with three types of cheese…Ricotta, Mozzarella, and Parmesan. Then chopped spinach, chicken, garlic, and pesto are added and stuffed inside a lasagna noodle. Topped off with more cheese and my “cheater” Alfredo sauce.

How To Make Spinach Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll-Ups

In a medium size bowl add one 15 oz. container of whole Ricotta Cheese. (You can use skim if you want…but this  is a “come to momma’s thighs” kinda dish!) Add one cup of Mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 heaping Tablespoon Pesto Sauce, and 1/2 tsp coarse black pepper.

Stir well to combine ingredients.

Filling for Spinach Chicken Roll Ups

Next add one egg. (This helps the ingredients to “bind” together) Mix well.

Filling for Chicken Spinach Alfredo Roll Ups

Add two cups of shredded Rotisserie Chicken (I buy mine at Costco), add 1/2 cup of well-drained thawed frozen chopped spinach. (Press all the excess water out of the spinach before adding it to the cheese mixture.)

Mix together well

Adding Chicken and Spinach Alfredo Roll Ups

Cook 10- 12 lasagna noodles and drain.

Lay noodles on a flat surface and spread filling the entire length of the noodle. Filling should be about 1/4 inch thick.

Remember when you were a kid and you would lay on a great big blanket and grab one corner and start rolling…that’s what were going to do with this lasagna noodle!

Begin at the end closest to you, and roll the lasagna noodle to the end. You don’t need to roll them tightly. We don’t want all that yum squishing out the sides. (That would be like a muffin top on a lasagna noodle. Ewe. Let’s not!)

Rolling Up Spinach Chicken Lasagna Roll-Ups

Once you have your noodle all rolled up, so to speak….place in a 9 x 13 baking dish.

I was able to do 3 rows of three, with a spare on the end. A total of 10 lasagna roll ups.

I think I could have gotten 11 if I hadn’t overfilled the first two noodles. I was just thinking they’d be happier all big and puffy! (Okay fine…I was thinking I’d be happier if they were big and puffy!)

Next you have a choice…you can make my cheater Alfredo sauce, or you can crack open a bottle of pre-made
Alfredo. Totally up to you!

I’m not a huge fan of bottled Alfredo sauce. I just think they miss the mark…but those are my taste buds. (They can be a bit uppity!)

To make my cheater sauce… in a large skillet over medium heat, melt one stick, or a half cup, of real butter. Add one diced up package of 8 oz. cream cheese. Stir until blended.

Add 3/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup white cooking wine, and 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of milk.

Butter and cream cheese in a skillet over medium heat for Alfredo Sauce

Stir until cheese is melted and sauce is the consistency you desire.

TIP: If it is too thick add more milk or white cooking wine.

Creamy Alfredo Sauce in pan

Sprinkle more mozzarella cheese over the top of the lasagna rolls.

TIP: You may want to put the cheese on top of the Alfredo sauce. I think it might hold the sauce on the pasta better than the way I did it.

More Mozzarella Cheese sprinkled on top of roll ups

Pour the Alfredo sauce over the top of the noodles, making sure each roll is completely covered in sauce. Garnish with fresh parsley.

(I was ready to dig in! Every delicious component is here for one amazingly delicious meal.)

Alfredo sauce poured over the chicken spinach roll ups.

Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 35 – 40 minutes until cheese is melted, sauce is bubbly, and the edges are turning golden brown.

Serve with a large spoon so you can scoop up the extra Alfredo sauce on the bottom of the pan! You don’t want to miss one drop of that creamy rich goodness!

The flavors blend perfectly in this dish. The luscious ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese’s, with the flavorful spinach and tender chicken, all rolled inside a delicious lasagna noodle and topped with that rich creamy Alfredo sauce.

In a word…YUM! Sometimes that all ya need!

Chicken Spinach Alfredo Roll Ups

I served this delicious mouth-watering dish with a big garden salad and crusty sour dough bread!

It was a great Sunday family dinner. These are rich and filling. Everyone around the table gave this dish two big thumbs up, but admitted that one roll was plenty!

    I made this tonight. Everyone loved it! My 17 yr old wanted to know why I only made one pan. He ate 3! I might have to double the recipe next time. Thanks for the new family favorite!

    • norine@norinesnest.com | 4th Nov 17

      Rebecca you sweetheart! Thank you for commenting and I’m so glad that your 17 year old LOVED it! I’m giggling at the “only one pan” comment. 😉 Hope you are doing okay. Thinking of you daily! <3

    Have you tried freezing these? I would love to make these ahead of time for the holidays.

    • norine@norinesnest.com | 6th Nov 17

      Hi! I have not tried freezing them however, they have very similar ingredients to Lasagna, as far as cheese mixture, etc. So I think they would freeze without any issues. I’d freeze them. I think it’s a great idea to make them ahead of time for the holidays and have them ready to go. Love that idea! I just may steal it from you. 😉 Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
      Happy Nesting!
