Chicken Alfredo Lasagna
This delicious twist to a classic lasagna recipe will have your family and friends asking for more! It’s made with white alfredo sauce, chicken, and Barilla lasagna noodles. Layer it all together and bake for a creamy, cheesy and delicious dinner.
The Pasta: You can either use the uncooked lasagna noodles or the “oven-ready” kind. Just make sure to add more water if you use this type. I prefer the uncooked kind.
The Alfredo Sauce: I use heavy cream, parmesan, ricotta cheese, and a simple seasoning of salt and pepper.
The Filling: This is made up of shredded chicken, spinach, garlic, onion, and shredded mozzarella.
How to make Chicken Alfredo Lasagna
- Make the sauce – In this Chicken Lasagna, the sauce is one with the filling. There’s no need to layer them between each other, so it’s easier and faster! Once you’ve got the garlic, onion, and spinach sauteed, add in the parmesan, heavy cream, ricotta, and seasoning. When it’s at a simmer, set it aside.
- Cook the noodles – Next, you want to cook the pasta. Start by boiling it in a stockpot filled with water and add salt. Cook until the pasta is al dente. I also like to drizzle some olive oil into the pasta so it helps prevent them from sticking to each other.
- Assemble the lasagna- Usually, a lasagna has at least 3 layers and goes in the following order: Sauce, lasagna noodles, sauce, filling, and then cheese, you want to continue this pattern starting from the lasagna noodles again. For our chicken lasagna, you’ll layer a little of the sauce/filling on the bottom, then noodles, sauce/filling, cheese, noodles, sauce/filling, cheese, until you’ve used up all the noodles. End with the cheese. You can bake at this point, or cover tightly and refrigerate or freeze for later.
- Lasagna bake time- Depending on if your lasagna is fresh or frozen, your bake time differs. Make sure to cover with aluminum foil until the last few minutes of baking to prevent the cheese from burning. For fresh lasagna– Bake in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-35 minutes. For frozen– Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 50 minutes.
What to do with leftovers
You can freeze chicken lasagna both baked and unbaked. Make sure to assemble the lasagna in a disposable aluminum baking dish prior to freezing. Ceramic dishes that are cold then rapidly heated may crack. Cover the pan tightly with foil and freeze for up to 4 months.
For unbaked lasagnas, thaw in the fridge, then bake according to the recipe instructions. You may need to add time covered since you are starting at a lower temperature. For already baked then frozen lasagna, thaw in the fridge then reheat in the oven until warmed through.
