Cajun Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups

Cajun Chicken Lasagna Roll-ups are a cozy weeknight meal and so fun to eat. Tender cajun-seasoned chicken, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and cheeses are rolled in lasagna noodles and smothered in a homemade cajun alfredo cream sauce, then baked to golden brown perfection.

A lasagna roll up is similar to lasagna, but instead of layering the sheets of noodles and fillings, we are rolling all the ingredients into single sheet and nestling them side by side. It makes for super easy serving!

What are Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups

They are kind of a lazy take on lasagna. Lasagna roll ups are made by spreading each lasagna noodle with our filling mixture, then rolling them taut, and nestling them side by side in a casserole dish.

Then you pour over the sauce (cajun alfredo sauce in this case), top it with cheese and bake. 

You can use this method to make different versions. Like buffalo chicken lasagna rolls, a recipe we have made and loved!

How to Make Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups

These lasagna rolls are easy and fun to make. With just a few quick steps you can have these for an easy weeknight or weekend meal! 

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together all the filling ingredients starting with the cheeses. Add in the sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, cajun seasoning, chicken and cheese. Boil noodles to al dente according to the package instructions.

Step 2: While noodles are cooking, make a quick alfredo sauce by combining butter and garlic over medium-low in a saucepan. Saute until garlic is fragrant, then add heavy cream. Whisk in cajun seasoning and parmesan and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until it thickens slightly.

Step 3: Add a few spoonfuls of sauce into a greased 9×13 casserole pan. To assemble, scoop 2/3 cup filling onto the end of each cooked lasagna sheet. Roll them up taut and place them seam-side down, side by side into the baking dish. Repeat with remaining lasagna rolls until pan is filled (about 8-10 rolls).

Step 4: Pour the warm alfredo sauce evenly over the rolls, spooning any sauce that falls into the crevices back on top of the lasagna rolls. Spread 1.5 cups of shredded cheese on top the rolls and bake uncovered for 35 minutes, or until edges are crisp and bubbling and top is turning golden brown.
