How to Make an Olive Garden Lasagna Rollata

I know we’ve all seen the Olive Garden advertisements on TV about their new Lasagne Mia’s and how yummy they look, but have you ever wondered how they make the lasagne rollatas? It takes less than and hour and if you have children that like to help in the kitchen, I bet they’d love to make these. Serves 8.

What does this recipe have to do with chicken, well my favorite topping is a chicken and Alfredo sauce. Salt and pepper chicken breasts in a skillet with some olive oil (2 tablespoons) and cook until browned, about 5-6 minutes on each side. When cooled enough to handle, cut the breasts into bite size strips then add them in a saucepan with your Alfredo sauce. I’d get 3-4 breasts for 8 servings. 


2 Cups Marinara sauce 
2 cups Alfredo sauce 
1/2 Cup Ricotta cheese 
1 Cup Italian blend shredded cheese 
1/4 Cup Red wine 

1 Egg 
15 Ounces Whole milk ricotta cheese 
8 ounces Parmesan ; Grated 
1/2 cup asiago ; Grated 
1/2 Cup Romano ; Grated 
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning 
Salt and pepper to taste 
1/2 cup Mozzarella ; Grated 

1/2 Cup Italian bread crumb 
1 pound Lasagna noodles

Meatballs with Marinara Sauce 
Chicken with Alfredo 
Shrimp with Alfredo

Blend first two marinara sauce ingredients together in a large saucepan. Add remaining ingredients and heat on medium, stirring frequently. The cheese will melt and the sauce will become creamy. Keep warm. Set aside 1/4 of mozzarella cheese. Beat egg into a large mixing bowl and add all remaining ingredients, blending well. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to use. 

Cook lasagna exactly according to package directions. Drain and rinse immediately with cold water so they are cool enough to handle. When ready to make, spread about 1/4 cup of marinara sauce in a large 9x13 baking dish. Lay one lasagna noodle in baking dish and spread with filling along noodle. Loosely roll the noodle up, jelly-roll style. Continue with each lasagna noodle until all noodles are rolled and arranged in baking dish. Cover each roll with remaining sauce, the remaining mozzarella cheese and top with Italian breadcrumbs. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degree for about 35 minutes. Serve as is or with with your favorite topping. Easy Peasy!
