I am occasionally on the lookout for ideas for “meatless” meals, since one of our sons is a vegetarian.  It’s fun finding new recipes we can enjoy together when he comes for dinner. Recently I came up with this simple recipe for Veggie Lasagna Rollups, after raiding my pantry and refrigerator for ingredients.

The recipe I came up with has lots of veggies and cheeses inside a rolled up lasagna noodle, then top with an Italian flavored pasta sauce, and bake. Veggie lasagna rollups sounded simple enough, and the recipe I ended up with had lots of flavor and tasted great!

Here’s How To Make Veggie Lasagna Rollups

Melt butter in large skillet. Add chopped veggies (yellow and green bell peppers, onion, spinach, and mushrooms). Saute until crisp-tender, then set the skillet aside.

Chopped vegetables are cooked to add to veggie lasagna rollups.

Cook the lasagna noodles according to package instructions. When done cooking, remove noodles carefully and drain, then lay pasta flat on work surface and blot dry with a paper towel.

Cooked lasagna noodles are drained then laid in strips.

Filling The Veggie Lasagna Rollups

In a bowl, stir together cream cheese, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder until fairly smooth. Reserve and set aside 1/4 of the cheese mixture to add to the top of the lasagna noodles prior to baking.

Spoon a layer of remaining cheese mixture down the middle of each noodle, lengthwise. Try to leave about a half inch on either side of noodle clear. Once the noodles have a cheese layer, evenly divide the cooked veggies down each noodle.  Top with a bit of grated Mozzarella cheese.  Repeat the process for each lasagna noodle.

Filling for veggie lasagna rollups is placed onto each lasagna noodle.

Prepare The Rollups For Baking

Spread Italian pasta sauce on the bottom of a large baking dish (enough to lightly cover bottom of dish).  Roll each one of the lasagna noodles up, beginning at the short end. Place lasagna rollups seam side down in the baking dish. Spoon reserved cheese mixture over tops of lasagna rollups.

Veggie Lasagna Rollups are rolled, then placed on sauce, and topped with more sauce.

Pour pasta sauce over tops and sides of rollups until covered (I used a can of Italian spaghetti sauce for simplicity). Top the sauce with additional grated Mozzarella cheese and grated Parmesan cheese.

Veggie Lasagna Rollups are covered with marinara sauce and grated Parmesan cheese.

Bake The Veggie Lasagna Rollups

Bake the lasagna rollups in a preheated 350 degree oven for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until cheese and sauce are bubbly, and the rollups are fully heated through.

Time To EAT!

Remove the baking pan from the oven. Let it cool for just a minute, then carefully lift each rollup out of dish with a spatula and place onto individual serving plates.  Here’s a sideview of what it looked like once cooked and on the plate.

It’s a simple, meatless yet tasty veggie and cheese filled Italian lasagna treat.  The recipe makes 8 veggie lasagna rollups. Depending on how hungry you are, you can either get 4 servings (2 per person) or 8 servings (1 per person).

Each of the Veggie Lasagna Rollups are served hot, on a plate.

Hope you will consider trying this recipe for veggie lasagna rollups. Make it your own by adding any other veggies of your choice to the mix, as well. If you want to add meat, simply brown some crumbled Italian sausage and add to the veggie mixture. Use whatever works best for you!  Have a great day, friends.
