Dairy Free Lasagna Roll-Ups (With Ground Turkey + White Sauce)

by Emily Meyer

These Dairy Free Lasagna Roll-Ups are made with an incredible white cream sauce. They’re filled with a delicious ground turkey filling and can be made with regular or gluten free lasagna.


I don’t know why but lasagna roll-ups are just so much more fun than regular lasagna. Am I the only one that thinks that? I actually love the texture they get too. Typical lasagna gets kind of mushy (which is delicious) but can end up being pretty dense and heavy. When you roll them up the pasta can actually maintain a slightly al dente texture, which I love!

The Easiest Way to Make Dairy Free Lasagna Roll-Ups

Obviously, make sure to read the recipe card for all the details. But let me just quickly break down the process here as well.

It may seem like a complicated recipe but a lot of the steps can be done ahead of time or done while you’re doing other things. Here I’ll try to indicate the easiest way to get each of the steps done.

Make the ground turkey filling on the stove-top. This can easily be done ahead of time and refrigerated until you’re ready to roll up your dairy free lasagna.

Create the dairy free white sauce on the stove-top. This can also be done ahead of time or can be created while your ground turkey is cooking. I’m a huge multi-tasker so this is usually when I make the dairy free sauce.

Cook the lasagna pasta. This is something you probably shouldn’t do too early. The lasagna will get kind of hard to work with if it sits too long.

Carefully Roll Up the Dairy Free Lasagna Rolls. Rolling the lasagna rolls isn’t too hard. Just don’t overfill them and use your fingers to make sure the ground turkey doesn’t fall out as you roll.

Place them in the baking dish with sauce on the bottom and on top. Any type of baking dish would work. I chose to use a round baking dish because it fits them well without much wiggle room.

Once they’re in the baking dish you can either refrigerate until you’re ready to bake or bake right away.

You Can Use Gluten Free Lasagna

As many of you know I’m also gluten free so I used gluten free lasagna for this recipe. You can easily use any type of lasagna you prefer. I did make this recipe with regular lasagna for my husband and it worked just fine.

The gluten free lasagna I used for this dairy free recipe is Tinkyada. But I’m sure any brand would work well.

Ingredients

  • 1 10 oz box lasagna – gluten free or regular

Ground Turkey Filling

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 onion
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt – to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper – or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder – or to taste

White Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons flour – if gluten free rice flour or all purpose is a good option
  • salt – to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper – or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric – this does turn the sauce yellow so if you have really picky eaters this can be left out, but I do like the savory flavor it adds
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plain almond milk

Instructions

Cooking the Ground Turkey Filling

  • Chop your onion and celery into small chunks and saute with oil over medium heat (turning down to medium-low if they brown too fast) until translucent.
  • Add in your ground turkey and seasonings and break up while stirring. Cook while stirring occassionally until meat is cooked through. Careful not to overcook since you will be cooking it a bit more in the oven as well.

Preparing the Sauce

  • Heat a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Add oil, garlic, and flour. Mix until flour and oil combine then add in your seasonings and nutritional yeast and mix again.
  • Add in your coconut milk and almond milk and mix until combined, making sure to break up the flour chunks as you mix. Turn the heat up to medium-high until thick and bubbly then turn off heat.

Rolling the Lasagna – see pictures in blog post

  • Cook your lasagna according to package instructions. If they seem starchy (or are sticking together) after cooking you can rinse with cold water.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F
  • Layer the bottom of a baking dish with a few spoonfuls of the white sauce (I used a 9-inch cake pan, but any similarly sized dish should work).
  • To roll the lasagna lay one strip out on a plate at a time and spoon in 1-2 tablespoons of your filling at the very end. Every type of lasagna pasta will be slightly different so you might have to adjust how much you fill it based on your pasta. Roll them up tight using your fingers to make sure no filling falls out. When placing them in the baking dish tuck them tight next to each other so they don't come apart.
  • Spoon the rest of your sauce on top then bake for 20-30 minutes or until sauce is starting to bubble, everything melds together, and meat is warm through.

Notes

Have extra lasagna? Depending on what type of lasagna you use you may have a couple of extra pieces that didn’t get filled. You can just roll these up empty and stick them between other rolls in your pan.
 
Have extra meat? Similarly, if you use a smaller lasagna you may have a little bit of extra meat. You can just sprinkle it on top before covering with sauce.
