Ingredients

  • 8 sheets uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter divided
  • 6 oz mushroom sliced
  • 3 tbsp flour all purpose
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 tsp Italian seasonings
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cups parmesan cheese shredded
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley divided
  • 1 ½ cups rotisserie chicken shredded
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • ½ tsp. Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9X13 baking dish and keep it ready.
  • Cook the lasagna noodles according to the package instructions and once done lay the noodles separately on a parchment paper and keep it aside.
  • Heat a medium skillet and add a tablespoon of butter. Once the butter is melted add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 4-5 minutes. Transfer the cooked mushrooms to a plate and keep it aside.
  • Heat a heavy bottom pot and add the remaining butter; once the butter is melted sprinkle the flour and minced garlic. Cook for a minute and add in the heavy cream, cream cheese, Italian seasonings, black pepper and salt.
  • Add the parmesan cheese and allow the sauce to thicken and smooth for 4-5 minutes. Add the chopped parsley and remove the sauce from the flame. Set aside.
  • To a wide bowl combine; rotisserie chicken, ricotta cheese, ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Add ¼ cup of prepared alfredo sauce to it and mix them well.
  • Spread a spoonful of ricotta mixture on a cooked lasagna sheet and roll it up from the short end. Repeat the same with all the lasagna noodles.
  • To the baking dish, layer ½ cup prepared alfredo sauce. Arrange the lasagna roll ups and top them with the remaining alfredo sauce. Add the cooked mushrooms on top and spread a layer of remaining mozzarella cheese generously.
  • Bake the chicken roll ups covered for 20-25 minutes until the cheeses are melted.
  • Once done, garnish the chicken roll ups with parsley. Transfer the chicken roll ups to a plate and serve warm.

Notes

  • Lay the cooked noodles in a single layer on parchment paper or drape them over a pasta drying rack until you are ready to assemble the lasagna roll-ups. This will prevent the noodle from sticking together or tearing. 
  • Cook a few extra noodles just in case!
  • Avoid overcooking the noodles. Cook them to al dente as they finish cooking while the casserole cooks in the oven. 
  • This recipe is freezer-friendly, so double it and freeze the extra casserole for easy meal prep. 
  • Add in more vegetables into the filling to make it more flavorful and fulling. Great additions are peas, corn, tiny diced carrots, and mushrooms.
  • Use freshly grated cheese as pre-packaged shredded or grated cheeses don’t melt properly.
  • You can swap chicken for turkey, if you have leftover turkey or make it vegetarian by doubling up on the spinach, cheese and other veggies for the stuffing.
