Chicken Alfredo Lasagna


Every once in a while you make a meal that is good.  I mean so good that you think maybe you should start a food blog so that you could blog it.  You know, post pictures and post the recipe?  And then you realize that Hey!  You already have a food blog to do all that on but the last month was too crazy and you didn't get a chance to photograph or post any of the great meals you made...

Last nights dinner was enough to make anyone start a food blog.  I had been texting a friend (Love you!) on Sunday to try and give her some dinner inspiration when I found some myself.  Took til Tuesday night to follow through but it was worth the wait.

I was inspired by a pinterest post for Chicken Alfredo Roll-ups but seeing as it was a busy weeknight I knew this was gong to be too much time invested for me so I had to change it around and this is how it went...


Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

Ingredients:
  • 6 no boil lasagna noodles 
  • 2 1/2 Cups alfredo sauce (you can make your own but I was tight for time so used some Bertoli garlic alfredo sauce)
  • 2 Cups cooked chicken, cut or shredded into bite sized pieces (I had roasted a chicken the night before but rotisserie chicken would work well for this)
  • 1 Cup thawed frozen spinach, drained and squeezed dry
  • salt 
  • pepper
  • 3 Cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • parsley for sprinkling on top to make it look pretty
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350º
  • Grease a 8X8 casserole dish and spread a small amount of alfredo sauce on the bottom of the dish
  • Place 3 lasagna noodles on the bottom (you'll have to break them to fit) and spread alfredo sauce on the noodles.
  • Evenly spread the chicken and spinach, salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with about half of the mozzarella cheese
  • Cover with the remaining 3 lasagna noodles, top with the remaining sauce and cheese.  Sprinkle with some parsley to make it look pretty
  • Cover and bake for about 45 minutes, uncover and bake for about 15 more.
  • Allow to rest for about 15 minutes and serve with a salad for a delicious week night meal.
I used the baking time to help out with homework and finish the laundry so it was time well spent!
