These Skinny Lasagna Roll Ups have all the flavors of traditional lasagna but without all of the mozzarella cheese. I know it sounds crazy making lasagna without mozzarella, but these Skinny Lasagna Roll-ups are sure to become one of your favorite weeknight meals! And you can make them with regular or gluten free lasagna noodles! 

I remember the first time I made them for my extended family, and they couldn’t believe I didn’t put meat in them. They loved them even without meat, but I started adding ground beef, and now everyone loves them even more! To make these Skinny Lasagna Roll-ups lighter, you’ll want to use a lean meat. 96% lean ground beef, lean ground turkey, or even ground chicken work great in this recipe. 

If you want to make the lasagna roll ups dairy free, you can use a dairy free ricotta cheese or even a dairy free cream cheese and omit the parmesan altogether. The consistency will be a little different, but the flavors will still be delicious!

As for the noodles, I started making these roll ups long before I was forced to cut gluten from my diet. And I have to say that regular noodles work a lot better than gluten free noodles for this recipe. Gluten free noodles tend to break a lot more when they’re boiled, so I always make sure to have extras. That’s my biggest tip for this recipe whether you use regular or gluten free noodles: make extra noodles because some will inevitably break. These are some of my favorite gluten free lasagna noodles for roll-ups: Jovial and Tinkyada. Whatever noodles you use, make sure you boil them according to package directions and then let them cool for a few minutes before trying to handle them.
