Lasagna has to be one of the best and easiest meals to cook up when you need food to stretch for the entire week. It’s also one of those unlimited possibilities dishes that you can literally throw everything but the kitchen sink into. I know we are all familiar with the original Lasagna recipe with the red sauce, ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, & beef, but have you ever tried it with a homemade Alfredo sauce? Since the weather is getting colder, check out this perfect dish to keep you feeling warm inside.

Alfredo Sauce Ingredients: 

  • Heavy Whipping Cream (2) (16oz)
  • Loads of cheese (Feta, Pepper Jack, Havarti, Smoked Gouda, etc.)
  • Paprika Seasoning
  • Garlic Sriracha Seasoning
  • Minced Garlic
  • Jalapeno Slices

Cooking Instructions: 

1.     On low heat, drizzle olive oil & pour two 16oz cartons of Heavy Whipping Cream into a deep pot;

2.     Begin adding your choice of cheeses. For this I used Feta Cheese, Pepper Jack, Havarti, & Smoked Gouda;

3.     Add seasoning, minced garlic, & jalapeno slices;

4.     Stir continuously to avoid burning & be sure to taste test to make sure the flavors are balanced;

5.     Once sauce has thickened to your liking & you are satisfied with the taste, remove from heat & let sit to the side.

Optional: If you are like me and love a little spice, go ahead & add some of the juice from the jalapeno slices into your sauce. The extra kick is AMAZING!!

Now that your “Alfredo” sauce is complete, it’s time to put together the lasagna.

Cooking Instructions:

4.     Check noodles to make sure they are not sticking. Stir & remove from heat when noodles are limp;

5.     While noodles are cooling, begin to prepare chicken tenders;

6.     Season chicken tenders with your choice of seasoning, drizzle pan with olive oil, & pan sear on medium heat;

7.     Once chicken is complete, remove from heat & slice into cubes;

8.     IT’S LAYERING TIME!!
