Lasagna Roll Ups are your favorite comfort food made easy, with lasagna noodles filled with sausage meat sauce and ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses!


  • 12 lasagna noodles (not oven ready)
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 24 ounce jar marinara sauce
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 15 ounce ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 12 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cook lasagna noodles according to package instructions. Drain and soak in cold water until ready to use.
  3. In a large, deep pan or Dutch oven, brown sausage over medium high heat, breaking apart as you cook it. Drain if necessary and return to the pan.
  4. Add onion and cook 3 minutes. Add garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano and cook an additional minute.
  5. Add marinara and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.
  6. In a large bowl combine ricotta, egg, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, and half of mozzarella cheese. Stir to combine.
  7. Spoon 1/2 cup of the marinara mixture onto the bottom of a 9 by 9 inch casserole dish.Spread to coat the bottom.
  8. Prepare an assembly area. Lay out a lasagna noodle and spread 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture over the top. Top with a generous spoonful of the meat sauce. Roll carefully and place seam side down in the casserole dish.
  9. After assembling all roll ups, pour the remaining meat sauce over the top and top with remaining parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
  10. Cover with foil, ensuring the foil isn’t touching the cheese-if dish is shallow either prop up foil with toothpicks or spray the underside with nonstick spray to prevent sticking.
  11. Bake for 40 minutes. remove foil and broil for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Garnish with parsley for serving if desired.


  • If you only have oven-ready noodles boil for only 3-4 minutes before rinsing and soaking in cold water.
  • Rinse and then soak the pasta in cold water after draining to prevent sticking.
  • Assemble the rolls on a rimmed baking sheet or large cutting board to contain any mess.
  • Prop foil up with toothpicks or spray the underside with nonstick spray to prevent the cheese sticking to it.
