Lasagna noodles are the basis for delicious and easy Chicken Alfredo Rollups. Homemade Alfredo sauce can be used in place of prepared sauce, and this dish is a great way to use leftover chicken.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz oven ready lasagna noodles
  • 30 oz Alfredo sauce
  • 2 lbs. chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (or chopped)
  • oregano, to taste
  • garlic powder, to taste
  • 4 cups shredded Mozzarella
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions

  • Spray an 9x13 inch baking dish with nonstick spray and pour 1 cup Alfredo sauce into the baking dish and spread out evenly.
  • Soak lasagna noodles in hot water until they are pliable enough to roll.
  • Drain and rinse each noodle with cold water and blot dry (rinsing is optional; I like to leave the noodles in the water until I am ready to roll them and just dry before rolling).
  • Spread about 1 Tbsp of the Alfredo sauce over each noodle and sprinkle with oregano and garlic powder to taste.
  • Evenly divide the chicken into portions equal to the number of noodles and place a portion on top of each noodle.
  • Sprinkle with about 3 Tbsp of mozzarella.
  • To roll up, start at one end and roll the noodles over the toppings.
  • Place the roll ups in the pan, one by one, seam side down.
  • Pour the remaining Alfredo sauce evenly over the top of the roll ups.
  • Top with remaining mozzarella.
  • Bake at 350°F for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.

Notes

  1. This is a flexible recipe that you can adapt to use what you have on hand. Switch to a marinara or meat sauce for more of a lasagna taste, or give it a complete makeover and use salsa or enchilada sauce with Mexican blend cheese for a Tex-Mex flavor.
  2. If you have cooked chicken in the freezer, you can use that.
  3. For a vegetarian option, use sautéed onions and peppers or steamed, chopped broccoli in place of chicken.

Cook Time: 5 hrs
Slow cooking marinara in the crockpot yields a rich, intense tomato flavor. For quicker cooking, this can be prepared on the stovetop but will result in a less flavorful sauce.

Ingredients

  • 25 oz jar spaghetti sauce
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 14 oz can stewed tomatoes
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. basil

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients except pasta and simmer in a slow cooker for 4-5 hours on low or until done.
  • Serve over hot pasta.

Notes

This can also be prepared on the stovetop. Although cooking over low heat for a longer period of time intensifies the flavor, sauce can be served at any time after 30 minutes on the stovetop.
