These Chicken Spinach Lasagna Rolls are one of those fabulous meals that make people think you spent hours in the kitchen. No one has to know the truth!
My husband couldn’t stop raving, and the kids devoured them. Best of all, they’ll happily eat spinach this way! I assure you, my kids happily eating spinach is not the norm.

I was afraid rolling up the lasagna noodles with the filling inside would turn out to be a big mess, but it really wasn’t. This elegant rolled pasta was honestly quite easy to put together.
And I love that this makes enough for two meals. I divide the rolls between two pans and put one in the freezer for later.
I do really love the spinach in this recipe, but if you prefer, you can also use finely chopped broccoli. Either way, these tasty chicken and pasta rolls are sure to be a hit!
