Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cook and stir ground beef, onion, garlic powder, and oregano in a large skillet over medium heat until onion is tender and beef is browned, about 10 minutes. Add tomato sauce and sugar; simmer until sauce is heated through, about 10 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish.

  • Mix ricotta cheese, egg, parsley, and 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese together in a bowl.

  • Place a lasagna noodle on a work surface. Spoon one layer of ricotta cheese mixture, one layer meat sauce, and one layer mozzarella cheese atop the lasagna noodle; top with another lasagna noodle. Roll up the stuffed lasagna noodles in the jelly-roll style; place in the prepared casserole dish. Repeat with remaining lasagna noodles, ricotta cheese mixture, meat sauce, and mozzarella cheese. Spread a spoonful of meat sauce atop each lasagna roll; top with remaining mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes.

I used ground turkey in this recipe, homemade chunky marinara (I was even able to "hide" zucchini in this roll up recipe in the marinara and none of my family members could tell!) and "trim" cottage cheese instead of ricotta. I did end up using a little more mozzerella than the recipe asked for--my husband requested more cheese. Even with my substitutions, the recipe turned out fabulous and the family loved it! Good recipe. NOTE: For those of you who use a jarred sauce, be sure you taste your sauce before you add in the whole three tablespoons of white sugar. It might be a little too sweet for some.

It was a bit too dry. I eliminated the sugar. I can't imagine that lasagna needs sugar. Read More

I love this recipe when having a small dinner party. I can put it together in the morning and bake it just be fore dinner. I fudged the recipe a bit and put half italian sweet sausage and half ground beef and because of the sausage I left out the sugar. The sugar usually just brightens up the tomatos so I would make the recipe as written if I only used ground beef. My husband loves this and so did my friends. Read More

I really liked the concept of this recipe. It was very tasty but it was also very dry. The next time I make it I am going to try and roll up the cheese and meat and then cover the rolls in sauce to see if that makes a difference. Read More

This was excellent! However, it was pretty fussy getting my noodles to roll and stay that way without the cheese stuffing coming out of them. Will stick to traditional Lasagna as it is less fussy. Read More

I think it was great. I’m a picky eater and I don’t like a lot of foods. My parents just asked me to make dinner one day and I chose this. I didn’t expect it to be that good, especially with my little cooking experience. Read More

Tasty but a little dry. Next time I'll use more sauce and only roll one noodle in each roll-up instead of two. Read More

The taste was fine but keeping the meat mixture in the rollup was pretty messy and difficult. Rolling with just the cheese mixture was easier but they seemed a little dry. If you use only the cheese mixture make sure you have extra sauce to pour around before baking it. Read More
