How to Make Air Fryer Lasagna Rolls

Making these lasagna rolls is so simple. Just follow the instructions below and you will have a delicious family-friendly meal in no time at all.

Step 3: Add sauce to your baking sheet

Coat the bottom of your baking sheet with a light layer of marinara sauce.

Step 4: Fill the noodles with meat mixture and then roll

Lay noodles flat and add 2 tablespoons of meat. Roll the noodle until closed. Place rolled cannelloni on the baking sheet. Whisk the egg and brush the cannelloni with the egg wash.

Add the baking sheet to the air fryer and cook at 350°F for 5 minutes. Remove and add some sauce and mozzarella cheese to the top of the cannelloni. Return to air fryer and cook at 350°F for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Pro Tips

Here are a few tips to make sure that your lasagna rolls turn out perfectly every time you make them. 

  • Cooking times may vary depending on the air fryer you have. I would start with the lower end of the cooking time and then add more time as needed. 
  • Do not overcook or the lasagna rolls will be dry. 
  • If you want to make these ahead of time, you can assemble them and then store them in the fridge for up to 24 hours before cooking. 
  • Garnish with fresh parsley, basil, and parmesan cheese. 
  • For additional flavor, you can add garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and onion powder to your cottage cheese or ricotta cheese. 
  • I used a loaf pan to make this, but you can use any oven-safe pan that fits in your air fryer basket. 
  • Make sure that you soak and then drain your lasagna noodles before you use them. If you are using regular noodles you will need to boil them first.
