Easy Lasagna Roll Ups With Meat – Make Ahead | Freezer Friendly

(upbeat music) – Hey everyone, it’s Natasha
of natashaskitchen.com, and, today, I’m gonna teach you how to make lasagna roll-ups. These have all of the same great flavors that you love in lasagna. They’re beefy, cheesy,
saucy, so delicious, and they’re way easier to
serve, so let’s get started. (hands tapping) Start by cooking 12 lasagna noodles according to the package instructions. Fill a large pot with water and add about three tablespoons of salt. Once the water is at a rolling boil, add the noodles one at a time to keep them from sticking together. And I like to add a few extra noodles, because some of them
will break while cooking. Stir the pasta occasionally, and, while it’s cooking, we’re
gonna start the meat sauce. Place a deep pan or a Dutch oven over medium high heat with
a tablespoon of olive oil. Add a pound of lean ground beef and cook for about two minutes, breaking it up with your spatula until it’s no longer pink. Then, add 1/2 cup of diced onions and continue cooking
for about three minutes, or until the onions are softened. Next, add three minced garlic cloves, a teaspoon of salt, 1/2
teaspoon of black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of oregano. Saute that another minute, or until the garlic is fragrant. Add 24 ounces, or three cups, of classic marinara sauce. Bring that to a simmer,
then turn off the heat. Once the noodles are al
dente, or firm to the bite, drain off the hot water and fill the pot with cold water to stop the cooking process and to keep the noodles
from sticking together. Now onto the easy and
scrumptious cheese sauce. In a mixing bowl, combine
15 ounces of ricotta cheese, 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, one large egg, and 1/4 cup of freshly chopped parsley. Stir that together until
it’s really well combined and set it aside. To keep my work station clean, I like assembling these lasagna roll-ups on a nonstick baking sheet. Arrange the first batch of noodles in strips in a single layer. Spread 1/4 cup of the cheese sauce, or about an ice cream scoop
worth, over each noodle. Spread those out evenly. And, remember, there’s
no need for perfection because these will get rolled up. Next, add a heaping
tablespoon of meat sauce and place that in a strip down the center of each noodle. Roughly spread that meat sauce and now you’re ready to roll. Roll the noodles one
at a time semi-tightly. And don’t worry about any of the sauce coming out on the ends, because the messier these are, the tastier they will be. Repeat that same process with the remaining six lasagna noodles, then take a 9×13 casserole dish and spread about 1/2 cup of meat sauce over the bottom of the dish. That little bit of meat sauce is important because it prevents the roll-ups
from sticking to the dish. Transfer the roll-ups
into the casserole dish, keeping them in a single layer. Spread the remaining meat sauce evenly over the roll-ups. Make sure you use every
bit of that meat sauce for a really juicy lasagna. Sprinkle on the remaining 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese. The cheese creates a crust
over the top as it melts, keeping the lasagna
roll-ups from getting dry. Cover the top with foil, then bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit in the center of your
oven for about 40 minutes. Then, remove the foil
and set the oven to broil for two to three minutes, or until the cheese is lightly golden. And when it’s done, you’ll see the meat sauce
bubbling at the edges. (chuckles) I’m so excited. Ah, because I get lasagna for linner, lunch and dinner; we skipped lunch. Oh my goodness, and it looks so good. Melty, bubbly cheese. And you know what I love the most about this kind of lasagna? You don’t really have to wait. With traditional lasagna, you do have to let it set a little bit, otherwise it can kind
of slide apart on you and be really hard to cut. But this one, you can just
dig right in and enjoy it, so that’s exactly what we’re gonna do. But, first, a little bit of parsley. Add that fresh pop of color and flavor. And look, now it looks
like a salad (chuckles). Okay, all right, no more
messing around; I’m hungry. Here we go. And it is so easy to serve this. Oh, the cheese pull, irresistible. Okay, you see those layers? (chuckles) Okay, here we go. And it turns out so moist and saucy every time; it’s never dry. Scrumptious. Ooh, hot (chuckles). Mm, mm, mm. It’s a tasty lasagna (chuckles). That’s a horrible accent, but it’s a delicious lasagna (chuckles). Oh my goodness, yum. It is so beefy; it’s loaded. Wow, perfect balance of
cheese sauce to meat sauce, and the cheese, don’t forget the cheese. Sometimes I add extra cheese (chuckles). I hope you guys are so,

  1. It’s funny & also ironic that you made this lasagna recipe because my gf just finished making your old lasagna recipe for my birthday which was november 5th… it was delicious 😋 keep it up chef natasha!

  2. This lasanga dish, looks totally appetizing😋 The way you make your food dishes, are a bit different than the traditional methods i've seen for years. Keep up the good work!
    P.S. i made your homemade apple pie, and it's in a category with my grandparents southern-style of apple pie. A delicious delight n' every bite!!! IRRESISTIBLE!!!!😋🤗🤪 Thanks Natasha!

  3. OK, a couple reasons why I like these. First reason, it's lasagna! hello! who doesn't love lasagna, am I right? Next reason, it's easier to make than a regular lasagna, because when you go to dig in, you don't have to let it sit and firm up like Natasha said, and you also don't have to worry about the first piece being wonky, because these are already portioned!

    Guys, please help Natasha out and give this video a HUGE thumbs up like I did (yes, I'm a youtuber too, I know the lingo haha!) and show this awesome gal some love, she most definitely deserves it! Natasha, you did it again, another HUGE home run! 🙂
