These Whole Wheat Vegetable Lasagna Roll Ups are a fun spin on traditional lasagna but with the same great taste and tons of veggies!
Pasta nights are favorites for many families, since it’s typically easy to make and kids love it! Well I like to branch out a bit when it comes to pasta dishes and add some variety besides the typical spaghetti noodles and sauce. And thanksfully, my kids enjoy the variety too (at least when it comes to pasta dishes).
With a little extra prep time (which can be done in stages), you can enjoy these healthy lasagna roll ups any day. They also freeze well too!
If you look closely you’ll notice that my cooked noodles are a little disheveled, well that’s what happens when you try to boil your noodles in too small of a pot! But this is real life, not a cooking show and when you’re cooking daily with 2 or 3 kids playing around you, it’s okay if some of your noodles don’t look perfect, right?!
You may notice that I love to add a ton of vegetables to my main dishes, and yes they typically consist of onions and any kind of bell pepper I have on hand. And this dish was no exception which includes onions, red pepper, zucchini and spinach. But of course, swap out any vegetables you may not prefer or add any extras that you have in your fridge.
These lasagna roll ups are packed full of three different cheeses and for good reason – not only is cheese a must-have ingredient in lasagna, but it’s also a good source of protein and calcium. Cheese is a great protein source for vegetarians as well as anyone who doesn’t consume enough meat products.
Here are few other recipes of my family’s favorite pasta dishes:
