Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Onions: Opt for two large sweet onions like Vidalia onions, or Walla Walla onions for an added layer of flavor. While yellow onions are a viable alternative, the sweetness of the chosen onions intensifies during caramelization.
  • Sauce: The creamy, cheesy garlic parmesan sauce adds the finishing touch. A subtle kick is introduced with red pepper flakes, enhancing the flavor profile. Feel free to omit them without compromising the overall taste.
  • Noodles: With the recipe yielding nine roll-ups, prepare nine lasagna noodles al dente according to the package instructions.
  • Chicken: Utilize cooked chicken, such as rotisserie chicken or leftover shredded chicken, to elevate the cheesy mixture.
  • Cheese: A triumvirate of ricotta cheese, Gruyere cheese, and parmesan imparts a rich, cheesy flavor. Explore substitutions for variety:

Ricotta cheese: Cottage cheese, goat cheese, queso fresco, or cream cheese serve as worthy alternatives.

Gruyere cheese: In the absence of Gruyere, opt for French Comte or Fontina cheese. Swiss cheese can also be used, albeit with a different texture.

  • Spinach: While fresh spinach is preferable, thawed frozen spinach with minimal moisture can be a suitable substitute.
