This recipe is a tasty spin on your classic Italian lasagna. We are using chicken meat instead if ground beef and Alfredo sauce instead of tomato sauce. The combination of chicken and Alfredo sauce is unbeatable, so why not put it in a lasagna.
Everyone loves creamy, cheesy, melty, buttery Alfredo sauce, it is pure heaven. This sauce is used in place of the traditional bolognese sauce in this dish. You can make it yourself or use a store bought. I absolutely recommend spending some extra time and making it from scratch. It just tastes so much better homemade. And it is better for you as well, no added preservatives and sodium.
We are also gonna have a spinach layer in this lasagna. Fragrant onions and garlic sautéed with fresh spinach. It is a perfect compliment to the savory chicken, carb comforting noodles and creamy rich Alfredo sauce. And let’s be honest we need to eat more vegetables.
This recipe also includes your basic ricotta and mozzarella cheese layer. I prefer using full fat mozzarella cheese just to have even more flavor and cheesy goodness. I am using organic raw chicken breast chopped up into cubes, but cooked chicken, turkey, rotisserie chicken and even ground chicken all work great in this lasagna.
This is a great make-ahead dish, assemble ahead of time and bake when you are ready to serve or freeze for later. It can be frozen for up to three months.
And it tastes even better the next day, noodles soaking in all the delicious flavors. This lasagna is a treat for your whole family, very tasty, hearty and satisfying. Everyone loves it, kids and adults, it is a great dish to bring to a work event or a family gathering. Pretty simple to make, this lasagna sure to be a hit. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
