Lasagna Rolls Ups with Butter Sauce

March 26, 2017

I mentioned this on my @clairecraves Instagram account, but I was in a car accident about 3 weeks ago. Definitely nothing major, but I did get some bad whiplash that I'm still recovering from. I just went back to the doctor and looks like I'll have to go to physical therapy for a few weeks to recover. In other words, it's been an eventful few weeks, but things like this always make you so grateful for what you have. Anyways, because of the whiplash I didn't go out much today and just took it easy, but one good thing that came out of that is this new recipe! I got hungry and rummaged around for things in the house which resulted in this buttery goodness. Let me know what you think! Right now my comments aren't working on the blog, but reach out on Twitter (@clairecraves) or Instagram (@clairecraves)!


Lasagna Rolls Ups with Butter Sauce

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 4


  • 12 Lasagna Noodles uncooked
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 15oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 3 tbsp Fresh Basil chopped
  • 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese grated/shredded
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese grated
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Optional Additions: Balsamic Glaze and/or Mike's Hot Honey


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. Boil salted water for the lasagna noodles; once you have a rapid boil cook the lasagna noodles according to package instructions

  3. While the water is boiling combine ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, basil and lemon zest in a bowl; season with salt & pepper to taste and set the bowl aside

  4. To make the sauce add the garlic and butter to a pan on low-med high heat - while the butter is still melting add a lot of freshly ground black pepper (roughly 2 tablespoons) on top of the butter

  5. Once the butter is melted add the juice of 1 lemon

  6. The sauce will look pretty watery so slowly add Parmesan cheese until it thickens slightly (about 1/2 cup, but this will depend)

  7. Leave the sauce on low heat while the lasagna noodles cool off

  8. Once lasagna noodles are cool add the ricotta cheese mixture

  9. In a baking dish add some of the sauce so it coats the bottom and place the lasagna roll ups on the pan and then pour the rest of the sauce on top

  10. Place in the oven for 7-10 minutes

  11. When plating pour some of the sauce mixture from the baking dish on top of your lasagna rolls and sprinkle with fresh basil

  12. OPTIONAL: I put on some balsamic glaze on one and Mike's Hot Honey on another - I think the balsamic glaze was my favorite
