Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

Everyone knows I am a fan of lasagna, and it is actually one of my favorite things to cook.  Traditionally, I make a red sauce lasagna with a combination of beef and sausage, but this particular day, I was craving a lighter, creamier version.  Hence, this Chicken Alfredo Lasagna recipe was born!  This recipe is super easy.  The process is simplified by using a cooked rotisserie chicken from your supermarket’s deli.  Don’t be intimidated by the de-boning process.  Just take a fork and shred all the juicy meat off of the bone, being careful to leave the bones behind (not in your lasagna!).  Then all you do is sauté mushrooms and spinach, layer it all up with creamy Alfredo sauce and lasagna noodles, then bake!  Simple and extremely tasty.  Try it out, and let us know how it turns out in the comments below!
