"This is a wonderful casserole dish; and, it freezes great. Make, and enjoy for dinner - make ahead and freeze before cooking to enjoy another night - or, make, bake, and freeze individually, for an easy and quick lunch. Now, I prefer to make my own Alfredo Sauce ... but this is supposed to be an easy dish. So, I made this using a store bought sauce - just make sure to use a quality brand."

Step 1

Lasagna ... I prefer to use the no boil noodles, but it isn't necessary. If using the no boil noodles, simply soak the noodles in very hot water for 5-7 minutes until they are pliable. If using traditional noodles, cook according to package directions. Make sure to let them both cool, and dry before trying to fill them. I lay them flat on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Note: I like to use the flat lasagna noodles, vs the curled edge noodles. But again, either one is fine.

Step 2

Filling ... Add the chicken, spinach (well drained), shallot, garlic, red pepper flakes, nutmeg, ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, parsley, and a pinch of both salt and pepper,to a bowl and mix well to combine.

Step 3

Roll-Ups ... Spread the filling over each noodle and loosely roll up. You want to add enough filling, but don't go overboard where all the cheese will ooze out.

Step 4

Casserole ... Add a little of the sauce (1/3 of the jar) just to cover the bottom of a 13x9 pan sprayed lightly with a non-stick spray. Then add the roll-ups seam side down. Pour the remaining sauce over the stuffed roll-ups, and finish with the remaining mozzarella cheese. I actually added a bit more (personal taste).

Step 5

Bake ... In a 375 degree oven on the middle shelf, uncovered, for 25-35 minutes; until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Remember, the filling is already cooked. Remove from the oven once it is done and cover with foil to rest.

Step 6

Serve ... Make sure to let the lasagna rest at least 5-10 minutes before serving. Add a salad and crusty bread for a fantastic dish.

Step 7

Note: You can make the casserole ahead of time; it freezes great. Just double wrap in foil and freeze. Make sure to let it thaw before baking. My favorite is to bake the casserole, and then freeze small individual portions for lunch, bake, and then freeze in individual containers; or, make it up to the point prior to baking, double wrap in foil and freeze.

We love anything with alfredo sauce. My wife surprised us when she made this with a garden salad and garlic bread for a super dinner!

I used two smaller glass baking dishes so I could freeze one. The directions were clear and easy to follow which I appreciate. The rollups were awesomely tasty and we enjoyed them with some oven baked rolls and salad. Very delicious and we will have it again!
