This recipe still upholds the integrity of the original mission lasagna set out to do: be meaty, be cheesy and be tasty. Using your standard lasagna noodles, we’re creating “roll-ups” that boast the freshness of asparagus, heartiness of chicken and the beautiful and rich creaminess of Alfredo sauce with an added boost of Reserve Series™ Aged Italian Blend. Yum!
- 8 lasagna noodles
- 1 cup diagonally sliced asparagus spears (1/2-inch pieces)
- 1 jar (15 oz.) Alfredo Sauce, divided
- 2 cups (8 oz.) Reserve Series™ Aged Italian Blend, divided
- 1-1/2 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken
- Basil sprigs or chopped fresh basil (optional)
- Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain; rinse under cold water to stop the cooking. Arrange cooked noodles on work surface or on sheets of waxed paper.
- Meanwhile, spread 3/4 cup alfredo sauce in bottom of 13 x 9-inch baking dish or pan. In medium bowl, combine 1-1/4 cups cheese, 1/2 cup alfredo sauce, asparagus and chicken; mix well. Spoon heaping 1/3 cup mixture down center of each lasagna noodle. Roll up; place seam-side down in dish. Spoon remaining sauce over rolls.
