It’s borderline ridiculous how amazing these Shrimp Pesto Lasagna Roll Ups are!

Cheesy, creamy rolls of lasagna noodles with succulent shrimp swimming in a homemade pesto cream sauce.

I’m pretty sure that’s the exact definition of comfort food, right?!

This one is definitely a splurge meal, but WELLLLL worth it, my friends 🙂

For sure not a quick and easy weeknight meal.

Leave a little extra time for this dish so you can roll each one up with love and care.

How to Make Shrimp Pesto Lasagna Roll Ups

The first step is boiling 8 lasagna noodles according to the package directions.

Once they are cooked, rinse them with cold water and set aside.

boiling lasagna noodles

While the lasagna noodles were boiling, I cooked a pound of jumbo shrimp that were peeled and deveined.

Set a skillet over medium heat and once hot, add a Tablespoon butter, the shrimp, and four minced garlic cloves.

Season with kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.

Shrimp cook rather quickly, really just a minute or two per side.

Remove the shrimp and place them on a cutting board.

And once cooled, roughly chop them into smaller pieces.

Now for the cream sauce!

Set the same skillet that you cooked the shrimp in over medium heat.

Add a Tablespoon of butter and a pint of heavy cream.

Once that comes to bubble, cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring a few times.

Then stir in some pesto and a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Remove from heat once the cheese is melted.

I could probably eat this just with a spoon!

We have all of our components ready, so now we make the roll ups.

Lay the lasagna noodles flat and use a spoon to gently spread ricotta cheese over each.

Next place the shrimp over top.

Then roll them up 🙂

Put a little cream sauce in a greased 9×13 casserole dish and place the lasagna rolls seam side down.
