Favorite Recipes: Cream Cheese and Chicken Lasagna Rolls

When I first began using Pinterest I came across a lasagna roll recipe and although it was good made adjustments to it to make it appeal more to my family as well as to the simplicity of ingredients. I've also chosen ingredients that are affordable at the store. As I have said in previous blog posts we are all about saving money at the store right now to accommodate our grocery budget so these won't break the bank! ;)

This is one of our favorite recipes and we eat them every two-three weeks. They also make awesome leftovers. I am not one to eat leftovers but these ones taste just as good warmed up as when they come out of the oven the first time.

For those of you who are counting your calories I took the time to figure out how many are in each roll the way that I make them. There are approximately 400 calories in each lasagna roll. So if you are watching your calorie intake you could eat one of these with a good size salad and have a really yummy meal on a decent calorie amount. The awesome thing about lasagna rolls is the nutrition you can get from them as well. They are full of fiber, vitamin A, iron, calcium and protein due to the cheese, chicken, sauce and the noodle. Yes, even carbs can be good for you in moderation. :)

You can make anywhere between 6-8 lasagna rolls with this recipe. We make 6 and it's perfect for our little family and we usually have one or two left over for lunches. :)

My Ingredients:

  • Kroger Brand Lasagna Noodles
  • Kroger Brand Pasta Sauce 1/2 jar (any flavor you prefer is great!)
  • 1/3 Less Fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese 8 oz. softened
  • Kroger Brand Mozzarella Cheese 8 oz. block chopped up
  • 1 cup of shredded chicken 

To do:

  1. Boil water and cook your lasagna noodles.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Mix the softened cream cheese, cubed mozzarella cheese and shredded chicken. If you would like you can add a little bit of milk if the consistency seems to thick for your liking. I don't like when it's too runny so I usually don't add any milk. 
  4. When lasagna noodles are cooked; drain and rinse in cold water. 
  5. Put half of your sauce down in a 9x9 if making 6 rolls or a 9x13 if making 8 rolls. 
  6. Take a noodle, lay it out and spread some of the filling out on it. Roll it up and place in the pan on top of the spread out sauce. 
  7. Repeat with all noodles until they are all rolled and in the pan.
  8. Spread the rest of the sauce on top of the rolls. 
  9. Cover your pan with tin foil.
  10. Put in the oven for 30-40 minutes. You truly have to watch how long they cook. 30 minutes is a good starting point but check them from there out. When the sauce is boiling and there is melted cheese boiling pouring out of the noodles you'll know it's done. I have taken them out too early before and they were still a little chilly in the middle of the roll. So be patient. :)
  11. Enjoy!

I love how simple this recipe is as well as how tasty it is! I guesstimate that with sales and coupon shopping I spend around $1 a roll which is pretty good if you ask me. We usually have a vegetable such as green beans on the side and once in awhile I'll whip up some garlic bread. I would love to have a salad with it but never have all the ingredients for salads on hand (I'm the only one who likes salads. Still working on my picky husband on that one.)
