Once you’ve made these delicious Chicken and Spinach Lasagna Rolls, it’s time to think about how you will serve them up! I suggest pairing this dish with a simple side salad of fresh greens. The tangy, crisp flavors of the salad will provide a nice contrast to the richness of the lasagna rolls.

If you’re serving this dish for dinner, consider pairing it with a glass of your favorite red wine. I love a bold Cabernet Sauvignon or a smooth Merlot with these lasagna rolls, as they both pair excellently with savory tomato-based pasta dishes.

If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic drink option, try serving up some sparkling water with a wedge of lemon or lime. The bubbly texture will refresh your palate between bites, and the citrusy twist will complement the subtle herbaceous flavors in the lasagna rolls.

These Chicken and Spinach Lasagna Rolls are also great for entertaining! If you’re hosting a party or potluck, consider serving them up as an appetizer. Cut each roll into bite-sized pieces and arrange them on a platter next to some marinara or Alfredo dipping sauce. Your guests will love indulging in these creamy, savory bites!

No matter how you choose to serve them, these Chicken and Spinach Lasagna Rolls are sure to be a hit. Enjoy!

When it comes to hosting a party, preparation is key. So, if you’re looking to save time on the day of your gathering, make these chicken and spinach lasagna rolls ahead of time. Not only can you assemble the rolls and refrigerate them for up to 24 hours, but you can also freeze them for up to three months!

To make this recipe ahead of time, follow all the instructions until the baking step. Instead of cooking them immediately, cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for later use. Just before your party, take the lasagna rolls out of the refrigerator to allow them to warm up to room temperature before popping them into a preheated oven.

If you plan on freezing the rolls, make sure they have cooled down completely before wrapping them tightly in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil. When you’re ready to bake them, remove from the freezer and let thaw in the fridge overnight before proceeding with baking.

As for storing leftover lasagna rolls, wrap them tightly in foil or plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator for two or three days. To reheat individual portions, cut a roll in half and place it on a microwave-safe plate. Cover with a damp paper towel and heat in 30-second intervals until warmed through.

These make-ahead tips not only help cut down on prep time but also ensure that your guests will always have something tempting to snack on throughout your party. Enjoy!

As a home chef, I have learned some tips and tricks over the years to ensure that my recipes turn out perfectly every time. Here are some tips for making the best chicken and spinach lasagna rolls.

1. Use freshly grated parmesan cheese.

When it comes to cheese, using fresh-grated parmesan is always better than pre-shredded. Freshly grated cheese melts better and creates a creamier texture, which is important in this recipe.

2. Cook the lasagna noodles al dente.

Be sure to cook your lasagna noodles al dente or just until they’re tender but still firm. Cooking them too much can make them become mushy and harder to handle when filling and rolling.

3. Don’t overcrowd the baking dish.

When you’re ready to bake, make sure not to overcrowd the baking dish with too many rolls. This will help them cook more evenly, ensuring that each roll gets enough heat to be cooked through.

4. Use fresh spinach instead of frozen, when possible.

While frozen spinach can be used in this recipe, using fresh spinach will give a brighter color and fresher taste. If you do use frozen spinach, make sure it’s thawed and drained thoroughly before adding it into the mix.

5. Make-Ahead Preparation

You can prepare these rolls ahead of time with ease just assemble them up to one day ahead then cover with plastic wrap so they won’t dry out then continue baking the next day.

By following these tips, you’ll have perfect chicken and spinach lasagna rolls every time!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, the Chicken and Spinach Lasagna Rolls recipe is a delicious and hearty dish that will be an absolute crowd-pleaser at your next party or family gathering. Not only is it easy to make, but it’s also adaptable to your preferences and tastes.

Whether you’re a meat-lover or vegetarian, you can easily substitute or add ingredients to make it your own. And with its creamy alfredo sauce, savory shredded chicken, and nutritious spinach, this recipe hits all the right spots.

So if you’re looking to impress your guests or simply craving a comforting meal, give this recipe a try. I promise you won’t regret it!
