How to Make Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

This baked pasta recipe is very easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook lasagna noodles according to package instructions for al dente. Drain the pasta and set aside.

Melt butter in a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic cloves and cook for 30 seconds. Whisk in heavy cream. Cook until the sauce has thickened. Remove the skillet from the heat. Season with salt and black pepper. Add parmesan cheese to the cream mixture and stir until the cheese melts.

In a bowl, combine cottage cheese, egg, and parsley. Stir well. Set aside.

To assemble the lasagna, spread half of a cup of alfredo sauce on the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. Layer six lasagna noodles over the sauce. Top the noodles with half of the cottage cheese mixture. Top with shredded chicken and mozzarella cheese. Spread half of the Alfredo sauce over the cheese. Repeat the layers and top the casserole with mozzarella cheese. 

Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil. Bake in a preheated oven. Remove the foil and bake until the bubbly and the cheese is melted and golden brown. Garnish with parsley. Cool for 15 to 20 minutes before cutting into slices.
