How about Lasagna with a twist!

What’s for dinner?” How about Lasagna? Everyone, especially kids love lasagna, but how about making it different and fun. Instead of making one big lasagna you can make individual lasagna rolls. You will need 10-12 Lasagna noodles cooked and drained, 4 chicken breasts cooked and shredded, alfredo sauce homemade or from a jar, 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese, 1 8 oz container of ricotta cheese, half a cup of chopped basil, veggies like cooked spinach and chopped mushrooms (can be optional), and salt and pepper to taste. Mix a half cup of alfredo sauce with shredded chicken, basil, 1 cup of mozzarella, ricotta, salt and pepper and veggies. Take 1 tbsp (or a little more) of mixture and spread on a lasagna noodle and then roll. Continue until all noodles are filled with mixture. Spray a lasagna pan with cooking spray and place rolls. Top with the rest of Alfredo sauce and mozzarella cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Add some garlic bread and you will have a delicious meal that is different from your regular lasagna and fun to make!!! Enjoy!

If you need a simple, fast and yummy homemade recipe for alfredo sauce here it is: A 16oz container of heavy whipping cream, 8oz cream cheese softened, 2 sticks of butter softened, 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1 cup of parmesan cheese (add more as you like). In a saucepan on low heat melt butter and cream cheese. Add heavy whipping cream and garlic powder. Mix with a whisk until cream cheese and butter are mixed in well. Add parmesan cheese and let simmer for 10 minutes on low heat. Enjoy!
