Lasagna Roll ups are even easier than my Classic lasagna recipe, with this EASY no fuss recipe! No pre-cooking lasagna noodles or skillet required! It freezes, re-heats and makes the perfect make ahead dinner idea!  

These roll ups are as simple as it gets! A simple cheese filling is plenty delicious without missing out on the meat. Plus it makes for a huge short cut since there’s no frying or cooking involved before baking! Since a box of lasagna makes 18 roll-ups it easily makes a future freezer friendly meal, unless you’d be feeding a crowd. I love this recipe and so do my children!
