Broccoli Chicken Alfredo Lasagna is a rich and delicious twist on your classic tomato based lasagna. Alfredo Lovers behold!
I am all about casserole type dishes. You put them together, throw them in the oven and you’ve got dinner made. These are especially handy for our super busy nights when we are running from rink to rink (like tonight). I love it because we can just reheat the meal and it tastes just as good as when you first took it out of the oven (sometimes even better).
Now, my kids are all about Alfredo sauce. Whenever we go to the Olive Garden all pasta dishes must have Alfredo sauce on them. So I came up with this recipe for Broccoli Chicken Alfredo Lasagna. I had originally planned on making just Chicken Alfredo Lasagna but I wanted to sneak some veggies in there. It worked out great. The kids devoured it and we still have some left over for lunch today. Bonus!
I made this around lunch time and then just set it aside until after we got home from hockey. It was awesome to come home to a delicious home cooked meal.
So, if you’re looking for a yummy recipe to make ahead, this one is perfect.
(I took a lot of pictures this time…just skip to the bottom for the recipe)
Bake the chicken with a dash of olive oil in a 425 degree F oven for 20 minutes and let sit for 10 minutes for tender and juicy chicken. Flip after 10 minutes.
I love the smell of fresh garlic and butter cooking
Pour your Alfredo sauce allover the chicken and shred away.
Finely chop up your broccoli so the layers fit together nicely.
Lots of cheese = extra cheesy
Shepherd’s Pie is a classic comfort food. It’s perfect for any day and it is awesome served as leftovers too, so make plenty to cut out some meal prepping time.
As many of you know I have four boys. And three of them play hockey, with the fourth one starting in September. We spend a heck of a lot of time at the ice rinks. I mean it’s actually a crazy amount of time. I should really keep track of it this year so I know just how many hours were spent there. Needless to say, during hockey season we are always on the go. Sometimes to multiple rinks in a single day. But that’s ok, because that’s what we do as a family. The kids have so much fun heading to hockey and seeing their buddies there. And, I love seeing my fellow hockey moms there. It’s like going out for coffee with a bunch of friends but you just bring your coffee to the rink.
As a family on the go it’s important that I have dinner figured out ahead of time. I’ll be honest, that doesn’t always happen. But I’m going to try and do better at it this year so we don’t eat so much pizza.
This Shepherd’s Pie Recipe is a delicious hearty meal that I can prepare ahead of time. I’ll be making this about a hundred times this season (ok maybe not a hundred but you get the picture).
p.s It will make your house smell so cozy and yummy….I love that.
Look at those yummy veggies mixed in with the gravy….so good.
