Chicken & Bacon Lasagna Roll Ups

Chicken and Bacon Lasagna Roll Ups - SimplyGloria.com

 Lasagna Roll Ups are everything you’d find in a traditional lasagna dish.  Except the filling and sauce is all rolled up with each individual lasagna pasta.  Everything stays tucked in!

These are not your usual lasagna roll ups, though.  Each pasta is filled with an abundance of cheeses;  tender, shredded chicken;  crispy bacon sauteed with onion and garlic;  and finally, topped with Parmesan Cream Sauce!

It just seems as though chicken and bacon were very much made for each other!

So, let me show you how to make these pillow-y delights!  Super easy!

Start by frying 1 pound of chopped bacon.  Then add the diced onions and garlic.

Saute for about 2-3 minutes more.  Just to soften the onions and garlic.  The aroma is amazing!  Then, drain onto a plate with paper towels.

Shred 2 cups of already cooked chicken breasts.  (About 2 medium sized chicken breasts.)  Set aside with the bacon.

 Add 8 lasagna pasta pieces to a large pot of boiling water.  Cook 2 minutes less than what the instructions on the box say.  Because, it will finish cooking in the oven.

After you drain them, lay them on paper towels to get all the excess water off.

While the pasta is “draining”… start putting together the filling.

In a medium size bowl, stir together the ricotta cheese, cream cheese, sour cream and parmesan.  Stir in salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder.

Now it is time to start assembling the roll ups.

Divide the cheese filling evenly onto each pasta.

Lay the shredded chicken across.  Then sprinkle on the bacon, onion and garlic.

Sprinkle some grated Parmesan and start rolling up!

Have a medium size baking dish ready beside your pasta.

Spread some Parmesan Cream Sauce on the bottom of the baking dish.  By doing this, it gives the pasta enough to just “sit” on and absorb from the bottom (and not just from the top).  Also, prevents the pasta from sticking or burning on the bottom.

Put the lasagna roll ups with the seam side facing down towards the pan.

Add the rest of the cream sauce onto the top of the roll ups.

Sprinkle with some mozzarella and Parmesan and a few more pieces of bacon.

Bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 25 to 35 minutes, uncovered.  Allow this dish to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

While the pasta is “resting” and your oven is still hot…pop some Garlic Cheesy Bread into the already hot oven.  Then you’ll have everything ready to serve at the same time!

  7. Saw these roll ups @ Memories by the Mile’s Tuesday Trivia.
    First, I like lasagna roll ups more than lasagna.
    Second, cream sauce is my weakness.
    Third, BACON!

  15. Found your site at midnight and have drooled over it for the past half hour. These look delicious and it’s killing me to not head into the kitchen and make them right now. Love your site!

  16. Just wondering how far in advance these can be made and if they freeze well?

    • Shannon, to be very honest, I have never frozen these before. (I just don’t have the room in my freezer.) But, if you’re wanting to make these ahead of time for dinner…you may assemble it all together at the most 3 days ahead of baking them. Just store them in the refrigerator before putting them in the oven.
      Or you could go ahead and put them into the freezer for up to 6-8 weeks, wrapped very tightly (I use freezer wrap, it cuts out a lot of freezer burn from the air that gets in). Let them thaw before putting into the oven. Reason for that is so it warms up evenly.
      Thank you for stopping by, Shannon! I hope I answered your question…anything else, feel free to ask. Have a great weekend!

    Gloria,

    Made this dish substituted bacon with fresh spinach and the family loved it. Thanks

  21. Made this for my daughter and son-in-law who just got back from the hospital with my new granddaughter! Doubled the recipe, one pan for them and one for my husband and myself! The are assembled, wrapped and sitting in the fridge for me to take to them. A cinch to assemble and do they look delish! I will let you know the results but I can tell you my husband (and dogs) were drooling as the aroma of the bacon mixture was wafting through the kitchen =)

    • Jodi, congratulations on your brand new baby granddaughter! I’m so happy for you and your family! (I simply can not even wait to become a gramma, myself.)
      They are going to love this meal when they come home with it all ready for them. You are just so thoughtful to do that for them.
      You know, it’s really hard to stay away from that bacon! I know exactly how your husband feels. I’m actually ready to go wake up my household with some bacon for breakfast right now! Have a great rest of your weekend…and again, congrads on the new teeny tiny new little member of your family!
      xo

  22. Jamie Bishop says:

    Amazing! We made these tonight for dinner and I love them! :) Thank you so much!

  23. I just made this and it was delicious! I added spinach for color and additional nutrients.

  24. If I made this the night before and kept in the fridge do you think it would keep or get too mushy? Thanks!

  25. Made this for dinner tonight…….family loved it! Success!, Thank you for the recipe!

  26. Very good article. I am facing a few of these issues as well..
