  • 1
    In 5-quart Dutch oven, cook lasagna noodles as directed on package. Drain; rinse with hot water. Drain well.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese, 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese and the Cajun seasoning with electric mixer on medium speed until blended. On low speed, add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in chicken and finely chopped green onions. Spread slightly less than 1/3 cup chicken mixture along center of each cooked lasagna noodle to within 1 inch of one short end. Roll up firmly toward unfilled end. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Place roll-ups seam side down in pan; cover loosely with foil. Freeze about 30 minutes or until firm.
  • 3
    Place frozen rolls in two labeled 1-gallon freezer bags. Freeze up to 3 months.
  • 4
    To bake 16 lasagna roll-ups, spray two 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dishes with cooking spray. Remove roll-ups from freezer bag; place 8 in each baking dish. Cover with foil; thaw in refrigerator at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 5
    Heat oven to 350°F. Pour 1 cup barbecue sauce over and around roll-ups in each baking dish. Cover tightly with foil; bake 40 to 50 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Remove foil; sprinkle each dish with 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese. Bake uncovered 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with green onion greens. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Drizzle with ranch dressing.

Expert Tips

Want to spice it up? Top the roll-ups with pepper Jack instead of sharp Cheddar.

While chicken is delicious in this dish, leftover turkey makes a fine substitute as well.
