Make-Ahead Lasagna Roll-Ups Recipe

Make-ahead_lasagna_roll-ups_

Make a big batch of these easy, cheesy lasagna rolls, and freeze the other half for a future quick dinner. These are like individual lasagnas and just one box of lasagna makes plenty of rolls, which is why it makes a great make-ahead meal.

This recipe is very yummy and pretty basic. You can certainly alter the ingredients to what you may have on hand and no cooking is involved during the prepping, which makes this make-ahead meal easy and freezer friendly. Since a (16oz) box of lasagna makes about 18 rolls, you can bake some right after prepping and freeze the remaining for a quick future dinner or just freeze them all for future meals. Not only does this make two easy and very tasty dinners, but how awesome is it when you can pull out a homemade freezer meal…
