"Easy" Spasagna


I was first introduced to Spasagna from this post on The Country Cook.  I googled Spasagna and found the version that I posted last week.  We both loved the first version of Baked Spasagna a lot, so I decided to give this version a try.  

This version uses jarred Alfredo sauce in place of a lot of the cheese in the first version.  This was very simple to make and tasted fantastic!  This version is easier to lighten up than the original.  I used light Alfredo sauce and 2% mozzarella cheese - every little bit helps.  This makes a ton and would be perfect for a potluck. I made half of the recipe below and it was easily enough for 5-6 people. We really enjoyed this Spasagna.  I'm not sure which version is better!

  1. Easy way to make my usual spaghetti seem like a fancier dish. And besides, spasagna is much more fun to say :)

  5. I've followed your posts for less than a week and already I'm going to have to stop LOL... I'm kidding I promise!

    Oh my goodness. The Smokehouse Chicken was great and the Spasagna was even better. I love to try new recipes and these were both well written and extreamly tasty!!! Even my husband said they were keepers.

  8. I waited a while to make this and made it last night. It was far more economical to make than the other one... and very delicious. In fact, I just had leftovers for lunch today!
