Yields12 lasagna rolls
- 12 lasagna noodles (see Note)
- 2 (15-ounce) jars prepared Alfredo sauce (or about 6 cups homemade sauce)
- 3 tablespoons canned pimento, drained
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
- 1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
- 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- NOTE: Because the noodles often split in the cooking process, you may wish to cook one or two extra.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 9-inch or 2.5-quart oval baking dish with cooking spray.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil with 1 teaspoon salt. Cook lasagna noodles per package directions, stirring once or twice to keep them separated. Drain and rinse with cool water, then drain well on a paper-towel lined baking sheet.
In a medium bowl, combine Alfredo sauce with pimento, parsley, and dry oregano.
On a work surface lay noodles flat and spread each with 2 tablespoons of the sauce mixture. Add shreds of chicken and then top with a tablespoon of the mozzarella cheese. Roll noodles and place into the prepared bake dish, seam side down. Continue with all remaining noodles.
Spread remaining Alfredo sauce mixture over the rolls, especially over the edges. Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes until the rolls are heated through and the top is beginning to turn golden brown. Garnish with parsley leaves and serve 2 rolls per person.
