My family and I LOVE chicken alfredo. It is probably my husbands favorite dish, especially when we go to Olive Garden. I thought, why not change up our normal lasagna and make it with alfredo sauce instead. It was a hit with the whole family and made TONS. I think we were having leftovers for about three days haha. If you love chicken alfredo, definitely try this lasagna!!
2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
Lasagna Noodles, cooked
8 oz package Italian Cheese Blend, pre-shredded
1 cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
4 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 tablespoon flour
4 cups milk
1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup grated Gruyere
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 tablespoon Garlic powder
Salt/Pepper to taste
In a large skillet, melt the butter and add in the flour. Cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes. Add the milk in and allow to simmer for 10 minutes, stirring with a whisk frequently. Add the cheese and cook for 2 minutes until well blended. Once sauce is thickened, add in nutmeg, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Preheat oven to 350. In a 9×13 pan, place a spoonful of sauce on the bottom and spread around to lightly coat. Place a layer of cooked noodles on bottom of pan. Add 1/3 of sauce. Spread to coat. Add 1/3 chicken, followed by 1/3 of Italian Cheese blend. Repeat layers two more times ending with cheese on top. Cover pan with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and cook an additional 15 minutes. Serve!
