Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

My family was growing tired of traditional red sauce lasagna, so I created this fun twist using a creamy homemade Alfredo sauce. Store-bought rotisserie chicken keeps prep simple and fast. —Caitlin MacNeilly, Uncasville, Connecticut

    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces thinly sliced pancetta, cut into strips
  • 3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto or deli ham, cut into strips
  • 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups shredded Asiago cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • 9 no-cook lasagna noodles
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook pancetta and prosciutto over medium heat until browned. Drain on paper towels. Transfer to a large bowl; add chicken and toss to combine.
  • For sauce, in a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup Asiago cheese, 1 tablespoon parsley, pepper and nutmeg.
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Spread 1/2 cup sauce into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Layer with a third of each of the following: noodles, sauce, meat mixture, Asiago, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Repeat layers twice.
  • Bake, covered, 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 15 minutes longer or until bubbly. Sprinkle with remaining parsley. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Swap bacon for the pancetta if you want a little smoky action in your lasagna. Mmmmmm.
  • Rotisserie chicken keeps this dish ultra simple, but really, any leftover pulled or cubed chicken will do.
  • Make it vegetarian by subbing 3 cups of sauteed vegetables for the meat. We like a combo of mushrooms and squash. Zucchini and butternut work well, too.

      This is good but very rich because of the cheeses and prosciutto.

      Made for Church potluck and it was a hit! Cheesy and moist! Will make again!

      Is it possible to make an extra batch and freeze for later?

      Fabulous recipe! I used ham in place of the pancetta and prosciutto. My family loved this.

      Like the other review I also added extra spices. I added garlic and onion salt. It was pretty good. I couldn't really taste the nutmeg. I added a lot more pepper. I love peppery Alfredo. This is an easy recipe to make.

      I had to add a lot more seasoning (salt and pepper) to the sauce and it did take awhile to thicken, but it turned out wonderful! Will definitely make this again in the future.
