This weekend marks the unofficial end to Summer, because it really doesn’t end for several more weeks but clearly the change over in months and weather is what people really care about. Weird. But heeeey that means several more weeks of Fall to enjoy so I shouldn’t complain because I adore Fall. You probably already knew that but if you didn’t, you’re in for a big surprise. Like HUGE. I know a lot of you will be busy getting one last beach day in or hanging out at a BBQ with friends and family, but be sure to stop back in here on Monday for some big news. I’m talking big recipe news. Delicious and incredible. You want to know this if you love Fall.

Something big is happening.

But what I want to know right now is… have you been watching MasterChef? I had a serious omg moment the other night. It was a two hour special and they totally well… I guess I shouldn’t say just in case you haven’t watched but if you’ve watched, then I bet you know that moment I’m talking about…half way through the two hour special. I won’t give any spoilers but jeez. That wouldn’t have been cool. I might’ve stopped watching after that. Then again maybe not. I’m glad it all worked out in the end. Now we wait. I’d say two out of the four don’t truly belong there. I have a personal favorite, do you?

So it’s been a while since I’ve shared a buffalo recipe. Somewhere around 4 months and that feels like a long time. I guess Summer got in the way and buffalo wasn’t on my mind at all. But now comfort food is back in action. Seasoned shredded buffalo chicken combined with blue cheese and ricotta to create the ultimate lasagna filling. These are wrapped up into a perfect bundle, topped off with shredded cheese and baked until bubbly. It’s a buffalo and pasta lovers dream. Not only will you love the flavor, but you’ll love the ease of making and serving this dish. No major layering or slicing. Roll, bake and plate. 

Yield: 8 lasagna rolls

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Rolls

Buffalo chicken lasagna rolls are a fun twist on a classic dish. All of the buffalo flavor you're looking for, wrapped up inside of a single sheet of pasta for a perfectly portioned meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2lb shredded chicken
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2C onion, chopped
  • 1/2C celery, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2C buffalo wing sauce
  • 8oz ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2Tbsp blue cheese dressing
  • 1/4C blue cheese crumbles, plus more for topping
  • 1C mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 8 lasagna noodles

Directions:

  1. Cook chicken using desired method, shred and set aside. This may be done ahead.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil. When oil is warm add onion and celery. Cook, tossing occasionally, until celery is tender and onions are nearly translucent. Add shredded chicken, salt, pepper, basil and celery seed. Toss to combine. Add buffalo wing sauce. Toss to coat all ingredients well. Continue cooking until chicken is heated through. Transfer chicken mixture to a clean bowl. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F and cook at least 8 lasagna noodles (more if desired, just in case) in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain.
  4. Prepare ricotta filling. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, egg, blue cheese dressing and blue cheese crumbles.
  5. Set aside a large rectangular baking dish.
  6. Lay one lasagna noodle flat on a work surface. Spread a layer of ricotta mixture down, leaving 1-inch of space at the far end. Top off with chicken mixture and slowly roll. Place in baking dish. Repeat with remaining noodles and ingredients.
  7. Lightly drizzle additional buffalo sauce over the top of each lasagna roll. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and additional blue cheese crumbles.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Serve immediately.

    Hi Rachel! How do you think these would keep if made ahead? Thanks!

    • Rachel — April 16th, 2014 @ 7:20 am

      If making for yourself, it probably wouldn’t be a huge issue. If making for company, I’d recommend making them as fresh as possible.

    Hi there! I’m drooling over this recipe and want to try it, but I have a kiddo who is a little sensitive to spice. Kiddo can do some spice, but not too much. On a scale of 1-5, how would you rate the spice level here? With 1 being just a hint of spice and 5 being holy smokes my eyes won’t stop watering this was really freakin’ spicey! Thanks! :)

    • Rachel — November 17th, 2014 @ 4:24 pm

      The only spice or heat is from the buffalo sauce. It’s hard to really say what level it’s on since everyone has their own heat ratings. However, my 5 year old has enjoyed buffalo chicken recipes before without issue. You can always cut back on the sauce or increase the cheese (which always helps with spiciness and heat).

    These are delicious. I did a mixture of ricotta and cream cheese and added garlic powder. This is my husbands new favorite meal!

    • Rachel — December 2nd, 2014 @ 7:28 am

      So glad you enjoyed them! :)

    Will the noodles not dry out in the oven without sitting in a sauce or being covered in a sauce more than a “drizzle”?

    • Rachel — February 24th, 2015 @ 7:55 am

      The moisture from the ingredients will keep them plenty moist, but you can add as much or as little buffalo sauce as you want. Enjoy!

    Every recipe I have tried from your site has been lovely. Making this recipe for my son and his very pregnant wife. Need to sub out blue cheese. Would goat cheese work?

    • Rachel — April 6th, 2016 @ 7:50 am

      That’s so sweet of you to say! I’m glad you’ve enjoyed everything. As for subbing out the blue cheese… if you like goat cheese, you could certainly give that a try. There is also blue cheese dressing in the ingredients, I’m not sure if that is an issue for your family or not, but a lot of people will use ranch in place of blue cheese. Definitely swap out cheese and dressing per your liking.
