Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll Ups

I wanted to share this yummy recipe with everyone. It is truly scrumptious! (Is anyone else out there thinking of Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang?) I got it off of pinterest, but to keep you from going from link to link here ya go:

Chicken Alfredo Roll-ups
Printable Version

9 lasagna noodles
2 ½ cups alfredo sauce (optional homemade recipe below)
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
garlic salt
3 cups shredded Mozzarella, or cheese of your choice

Spray an 8x8 pan with non-stick spray and pour ½ cup alfredo sauce, or just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Boil 8-10 cups water in a large pan, cook lasagne noodles until al dente. (I usually cook 1 or 2 extra just because lasagna noodles always seem to break on me when I am stirring them.)
Now this is the important part! Drain and rinse the noodles with cold water to prevent them from sticking to each other. Then, lay out each noodle individually and blot dry with a paper towel.

Spread about 2 Tbs. alfredo sauce over each noodle. (if there is too much sauce you will have a big mess on your hands!) Sprinkle oregano and garlic salt on top of sauce. Take 1/9 of the shredded chicken and spread it out evenly over each noodle. Add approx. 3 Tbs. cheese. To roll up, start at one end and roll the noodle over the toppings. You will need to lift the noodle a little to prevent squishing out the inside ingredients while rolling.

Place the roll-ups in the pan, one by one, seam-side down so they don't come undone. Once they are all in the pan, pour the remaining alfredo sauce over the top. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted on top.

Serves 3, 3 roll-ups each

Super Easy and Delicious!!

As far as with my chicken.. I put a little bit of oil in a pan. I heavily sprinkle my chicken tenders with Salt, Pepper, Paprika and Oregano.. Maybe some garlic salt too? I flip them several times while cooking and just when I think they are done, I grab my #1 Kitchen tool, My scissors, and cut them in to bite size pieces and let them cook a little bit longer. I don't shred my chicken, but you can if you want that extra step. Anyway.. This is a wonderful meal, but plan to make a mess and it takes about an hour and a half to prepare.
