Have you converted to lasagna roll ups? I almost have entirely, it’s now rare that I make than traditional layered lasagna. I just love with the roll ups how you can bake as many as you want, then freeze the remainder to bake later. I also like that they aren’t as messy, you don’t end up with a slice of lasagna that once had layers but ends up flattened in a mound of just pasta, cheese and sauce.

This time around it’s spinach four cheese and it’s a lasagna you are going to love! It may take a while to assemble these but doesn’t all lasagna require some effort? In the end, when you get to bite into that cheesy goodness, you’ll realize it was definitely worth it.

Be sure to check out the other lasagna roll ups I have posted so you can keep things interesting and rotate the recipes. There is the Traditional Lasagna Roll Ups (one of my earliest posts, don’t be alarmed by the terrible photos :), the Creamy White Chicken Lasagna Roll Ups (perfect for those of you who don’t like red sauce), Caprese Lasagna Roll Ups (a summer favorite. I mean how can you go wrong with a generous amount of mozzarella, fresh tomatoes and fresh basil?), and of course one of my favorites, these Roasted Vegetable Lasagna Roll Ups. I wonder what will be next??

Spinach Four Cheese Lasagna Roll Ups

A flavorful fun way to make lasagna! Made with lots of cheese paired with fresh spinach and a delicious marinara sauce.
Servings: 12 roll ups
Prep30 minutes
Cook20 minutes
Ready in: 50 minutes



  • For the marinara sauce:
  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add onion and saute until tender about 3 minutes. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds longer. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and basil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then remove from burner, cover with lid and set aside.
  • For the pasta:
  • Prepare pasta according to directions listed on package, then drain and once noodles are cool enough to handle, align on parchment or wax paper, side by side. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • For the cheese filling:
  • While pasta is boiling, drain steamed or frozen spinach in paper towels, pressing out some of the excess moisture (I wouldn't drain all of it, I think a little will keep the noodles moist), then chop spinach. In a mixing bowl stir together, spinach, ricotta, egg, parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix in 1 1/2 cups of the mozzarella, the asiago and Romano cheese.
  • To assemble lasagna roll ups:
  • Spread 1/4 cup (barely heaping) of the cheese mixture evenly along length of the noodles. Roll noodles up jelly roll style to opposite end. Pour about 1 cup of the marinara sauce into the bottom of a 13 by 9-inch baking dish. Place lasagna roll ups in baking dish then cover tops with remaining marinara sauce and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Bake in preheated oven 20 - 28 minutes, until cooked through.

    I fell in love with this recipe at first site! I actually sauted fresh spinach in garlic n butter prior to adding to the ricotta. Other than that, I followed the complete recipe and it turned out AMAZING!! Thanks for such a awesome idea:-)

  • Nicole

    I made these last night for dinner. WOW! My boyfriend loved them and even said it was the best lasagna he’s ever had. Great recipe!

  • Pat

    I made these and they are delicious. I am now going to make again to serve in two weeks for a large crowd. I am going to freeze them but should I bake them first and then freeze or just roll them and then freeze. And should I defrost them? Thanks Sorry for all the questions!

      Jaclyn Bell

      I don’t mind your questions at all :). I would bake after freezing and thaw before baking. I’m glad you enjoyed them Pat!

  • Shanice

    Hi Jaclyn! I was wondering if I could add chicken to this? I make a somewhat similar lasagna with chicken and now my parents refuse to eat lasagna without it lol.

    • Jaclyn

      Jaclyn Bell

      Yes that should be just fine. I’d just recommend cutting the chicken up into really small pieces so they’ll still roll well.

  • Kathryn Powell

    Do you think you could freeze them? I love recipes that I can cook twice and freeze one.
    Absolutely love your recipes and your blog.

    • Jaclyn

      Jaclyn Bell

      Yes these should be great for freezing! Thanks for letting me know you love my recipes and blog, I’m so happy to hear that Kathryn!

  • Courtney

    I just wondering, I have fresh spinach. Would I steam them in a sauté pan or would i have to use an actual steamer? Please let me know as soon as possible, I DEFINANTLY
    have to make this for my family dinner tomorrow . p.s i LOVE all your recipes . :)

    • Jaclyn

      Jaclyn Bell

      Anything you want to use to steam it is fine. I’m so glad you like my recipes, thanks for letting me know :)!

  • Sarah

    I love this idea. I added a little sauce and some ground turkey into my roll ups and they are perfect. I put 2 roll ups into those disposable tin-foil mini loaf pans to freeze as single servings to take to college with me!

  • Caroline

    OFFICIALLY obsessed! You can even include add ons as you roll up the lasagna! What I love is that the cheese is still there after its baked, which is hard to taste in the traditional lasagnas because its lost in all the messiness. Definitely my new obsession! :)
