Instructions

  1. Step 1: Prepare the Filling
  2. In a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, and parsley. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Step 2: Make the Alfredo Sauce
  4. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  5. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  6. Pour in the heavy cream and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  7. Gradually add the grated Parmesan cheese, stirring until the sauce is smooth and thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
  8. Step 3: Assemble the Lasagna Rolls
  9. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  10. Lay the cooked lasagna noodles flat on a clean surface.
  11. Spread a generous amount of the chicken and cheese filling evenly over each noodle.
  12. Carefully roll up each noodle and place them seam-side down in a greased baking dish.
  13. Pour the Alfredo sauce evenly over the lasagna rolls.
  14. Sprinkle the additional ½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
  15. Step 4: Bake
  16. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  17. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese on top is melted and bubbly.
  18. Step 5: Serve
  19. Remove the lasagna rolls from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
  20. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
  21. Cook Notes and Variations
  22. Vegetable Variation: Add sautéed spinach, mushrooms, or bell peppers to the filling for extra flavor and nutrients.
  23. Seafood Twist: Substitute the chicken with shrimp or crab meat for a seafood version.
  24. Spicy Kick: Add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the Alfredo sauce for a hint of heat.
  25. Herb Delight: Mix in fresh basil or oregano with the filling for an added burst of herbal flavor.
  26. Keto Version
  27. To make this recipe keto-friendly, use zucchini slices instead of lasagna noodles. Thinly slice the zucchini lengthwise, lightly salt them, and let them sit for about 10 minutes to draw out excess moisture. Pat them dry before using as noodles.
  28. Low Carb Version
  29. For a lower-carb option, use whole wheat lasagna noodles or cabbage leaves as a pasta substitute. Blanch the cabbage leaves in boiling water until pliable, then use them as you would lasagna noodles.
