Chicken Alfredo Lasagna
So the other night I wanted to try a recipe I had pinned for chicken Alfredo roll ups. I mean, it had Alfredo sauce, cheese, and pasta. How could I go wrong?
Except like I said, it was a bit of a hectic day.
And I started thinking, "Why do I have to roll up anything? That is more time than I have..." So I decided to go for more of a lasagna instead. And thought it wasn't beautiful (as noted above), it was well-received. And almost all of it was gone before the night ended.
Best of all, it really was easy (especially since I didn't roll anything).
9-12 lasagna noodles (I did 12)
2 1/2 cups Alfredo sauce (I make a homemade version...YUM)
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
2-3 cups shredded Mozzarella
Boil lasagna noodles according to directions on package.
Spray a 9 x 12 inch pan with cooking spray or olive oil.
Heat oven to 350.
Spread a small amount of the Alfredo sauce on the bottom of the pan.
Lay 4 lasagna noodles down on top of the sauce.
Mix the chicken and the Alfredo sauce together.
Spread 1/2 of the chicken/Alfredo sauce over the noodles.
Lay down 4 more lasagna noodles.
Again, spread 1/2 the chicken/Alfredo sauce on top of the noodles.
Place the remaining four noodles on top.
Sprinkle the shredded Mozzarella on top.
Sprinkle the oregano and garlic salt over the top.
Bake for 30 minutes.
We ate ours with breadsticks. I would have thrown in some corn or a salad but once again, it was a bit of a crazy night. So we just ate a simple meal. And loved every bite!
