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!
