Aldi sells several types of frozen lasagna. They have a small Regular Buy lasagna that is available year round. They also sell a family-sized lasagna and a vegetable lasagna as rotating, limited-time ALDI Finds (Special Buys). They even sell oven-ready no-boil lasagna noodles for several months each year as a seasonal item if you want to make your own lasagna from scratch. In addition, if you want something different, Aldi sells lasagna rolls.
Bremer Cheese Lasagna Rolls were $5.99 for a 32-oz. package at the time of publication. One box contains 12 rolls, with 12 servings per container, which comes out to about 50 cents per serving. They have “a rich blend of ricotta, Parmesan, and Romano cheeses,” and they’re found year round in the Regular Buy freezer section.
A one-roll serving nets you 160 calories, 3.5 grams of total fat (6% DV), 2 grams of saturated fat (9% DV), 160 mg of sodium (7% DV), 25 grams of total carbohydrates (8% DV), 1 gram of dietary fiber (4% DV), 1 gram of sugars, and 6 grams of protein.
It’s a processed product, so it has some less-desirable ingredients such as carrageenan and xanthan gum, but the ingredients list is not as lengthy of a laundry list as one might expect for a frozen entree. People with allergies should be aware these contain wheat, milk, and eggs.
IMPORTANT: these do not come with sauce! You must add your own.
When I picked these up in the store, I assumed they included everything I’d need for a complete entree, including the sauce. I was wrong. The instructions call for adding “your favorite sauce.” The instructions also don’t say how much sauce to use, but I would guess you need one full jar. Thankfully, I had some marinara sauce on hand, but if you don’t already have a jar of sauce, this could quickly throw your dinner plans into chaos.
The lasagna rolls can be prepared in a conventional oven or in the microwave.
To bake in the oven, preheated to 375 degrees. Place your favorite sauce in an oven-safe dish. Place frozen rolls on top of the sauce and add more sauce on top of the rolls. Cover with a lid or foil and bake in the center of the oven for 25-30 minutes or until hot (160 degrees). Remove from the oven and let stand 2 minutes before serving. Remove cover carefully as steam will be hot. Optional: add grated cheese and or Mozzarella cheese and return to the oven, baking until cheese is hot and bubbly.
To microwave, place your favorite sauce in a microwave-safe dish. Place the frozen rolls on top of the sauce and add more sauce on top of the rolls. Cover the dish and microwave on high power (100%) for 2 1/2 minutes. Microwave on medium power (50%) for an additional 6-8 minutes or until hot (160 degrees). Remove from microwave and let stand 2 minutes before serving. Remove cover carefully as steam will be hot.
The box also includes variations you can use while preparing the lasagna rolls to add different flavors or vibes to your meal:
- Classic: add marinara sauce and top with shredded cheeses.
- Mexican: add chipotle or enchilada sauce and top with jalapeno peppers, corn, and black olives.
- Vegetarian: add vodka cream sauce and top with sauteed eggplant, zucchini, and squash.
The one positive that comes from these not including sauce is that the cheese-filled noodles become a base with a lot of flexibility, with room for several variations. I tend to think of lasagna rolls as only being served with classic red sauce, but serving them with an alfredo sauce or jazzed up with a Mexican-themed sauce also sound good.
I prepared our lasagna rolls in the oven and used Simply Nature Organic Marinara Pasta Sauce. I forgot to put a foil cover over the baking dish, but the lasagna rolls didn’t dry out. It took about 40 minutes to get them up to 160 degrees, but that might have been because I didn’t cover the dish. At around the 30-minute mark, I took the baking dish out of the oven and sprinkled on some shredded mozzarella cheese before placing it all back in the oven.
The house smelled delicious while these were baking, and my family approved of the lasagna rolls. They didn’t taste all that different from the homemade lasagna rolls I make, and they come together with a lot less work than homemade lasagna rolls because I don’t have to cook the noodles, mix the cheese filling, spread it on the noodles, and roll them up. It’s easy to simply dump the pre-made rolls in a baking dish with some sauce and pop them in the oven.
The box says one 160-calorie roll is one serving, but that felt small to us, so most of us ate two rolls, which brings the calorie count (before adding sauce and shredded cheese topping) to 320 calories per serving. It was a good meal served alongside some garlic biscuits and salad with a tasty Italian dressing made from a packet I purchased from Aldi.
While I give these lasagna rolls a slight knock because it’s too easy to mistakenly assume these come with sauce, now that I know what I’m getting in the box, I appreciate their convenience. A benefit that comes with adding my own sauce is that I have control over the sauce ingredients, and I can use no-sugar added sauce or even use homemade sauce. I’m also looking forward to making these in the future with alfredo sauce or possibly as the Mexican variation with enchilada sauce.
Aldi’s Bremer Cheese Lasagna Rolls can save you time if you aren’t up to making lasagna or lasagna rolls from scratch. But be aware these are just cooked lasagna noodles rolled up with cheese filling. You must add your own sauce. That said, these are delicious, like what you might get at an Italian restaurant. I recommend them.
I love these!! I ran across them on my first trip to Aldi… not my very first, but the one most recently that made me a Nerd with a capital N. 😋 Ever since that visit, at which time I also purchased dill pickle hummus (OMGGGGGG), I’ve been a Nerd! On my last trip to the one closest to me, they didn’t have these and I’m freaking out!! Can’t be going away. 🥲
I purchased these with bit of a skeptical mind. I was genuinely thrilled with the quality and taste of this dish I presented my family. The box of 12 for less than $6 is a great value. The 12 made dinner for 3 adults.. and someone will get a lunch out of the leftovers. I generously added sauce and then cheese to top off the final few minutes of baking. I will always have a box of these in my freezer for a quick, easy, & delicious meal.
I buy Bremer cheese lasagna rolls at our local Aldi’s in Erie, PA. but they don’t always have them in stock. Is there any way I can purchase these from the maker? Or, is there any way they can be ordered online? Or is there a way to buy them somewhere besides Aldi’s?
Aldi doesn’t sell online in the U.S. Your best best if you can’t find the rolls at Aldi is to look for a different brand at another grocery store. https://www.aldireviewer.com/does-aldi-ship-its-products-online/
I have purchased these cheese roll ups several times, We ( my family) absolutely love them. I am just curious when they will be back on the shelf’s for sale once again???
That would be a question to ask Aldi.
Thank you for responding. I just wish customers knew when this product would be in stock or I wish customers knew where Aldi’s get their orders from for Bremer Cheese Lasagna Rolls so we could just order them from there as well.
They were delicious and would buy them again………
I hesitated buying these i usually make from scratch…But they surprised me and will buy again..They were delicious….
These are better than what I make. So fast and easy.
the quality was as good as home made, and i am a pretty good cook! I went back and bought more.
Oh my GOSH these are amazing! Just purchased them yesterday and tried them today and I LOVE Them! I am not able to eat anything with garlic in it so I was thrilled to find a product with NO sauce that I could add my own non garlic sauce too, although I honestly would eat these with no sauce since they are so good. BUY THEM! They are really good!!
I was utterly shocked when I tried Bremer’s Lasagna Rolls for the first time because some frozen foods at Aldi are hit or miss. I recommend just try them once. I went back and bought two more boxes. The rolls taste so good with Sam’s choice tomato and mascarpone sauce (from Wal-Mart) and don’t forget the cheese!
Another good Aldi product to try is the Lobster Mac n’ Cheese. If you like rich mac n’ cheese and the taste of lobster, you’ll love this one!
They used to be in the store all the time. Haven’t seen them in 6 months. Seems like they replaced them with bremer lasagna which is no where near as good.
Aldi Shoppers! Be Aldi-Aware and grateful! These delightful Aldi products are cycled like this on purpose! Markets are tested and new items tested…sometimes before they are available in other stores. Try to make it a part of the Aldi-adventure to buy your favorites while they are in stock and try new things when they are not. I might never have tried the wonderful green lentil lasagna “noodles” otherwise! (Delicious, easy, healthy!)
Thanks! I needed the instructions and tossed the box.
I thought these were ok for a somewhat quick dinner. I used Aldi’s marinara sauce. Sprinkled with garlic powder, added shredded mozzarella, sprinkled the top with Italian seasoning. When I pulled it out, I generously topped with parmesan cheese.
I’m not a huge fan of the taste of the noodles, but the filling wasn’t that bad. I’m 50/50 if I’ll buy them again. We’ll see what my stepson says.
I shop at the Lockport New York Aldi store and cannot find the lasagna roll ups. I first had these from the Ocala Florida store and liked them. Unfortunately I cannot find them in the Lockport store. Is there a reason they don’t offer them?
I have checked three all the stores for the cheese lasagna rolls and have not found them at any of the stores. They have no idea when they will be back in stock. Kind of disheartening…
I made these for dinner tonight. Yum! I was surprised by the quality.
I am glad they did not come with sauce, because that sauce tastes like tv dinner sauce, lol.
I cannot find the bremer lasagna rolls at aldi’s. Why have they stopped carrying them. Loves these and want to buy but can’t.
why doesen’t aldi have the cheese lasagna roolups anymore,? that was the best thing ever. in the aldi that I shop in in Williamsburg Va. has not had them for a year now, every time I shop in aldi I look for them. I am very disappointed that I cannot fine my Bremer cheesy lasagna rollups. when will aldi get them back again?
