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
Sweet Potato Noodles with Bacon & Sage is a perfect Fall time meal. This dish is full of flavour and is the perfect lunch or dinner.
There’s something about fall time that makes me want to cook and bake like crazy. It must be the coziness that fills the house when something is in the oven or on the stove, and the scents that fill the house when it’s cooking.
I’ve got a huge list of recipes that I want to make and I pretty much want to just put them on hold so I can do my Fall baking before Fall is over. Because you know what it’s like. Time just disappears and before you know it, it’s Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas I feel like I’m on the ball. I have a few gifts purchased….woot woot!!! So if you’re a procrastinator (I usually am), jump on the band wagon and start buying things here and there. You won’t be sorry.
For now though, back to Fall. Here’s a cozy and yummy dish using sweet potatoes…or yams…whatever the heck you call them. I never can tell the difference…ha.
This sauce is jam packed with flavour….so tasty.
Who doesn’t love bacon and sage?!?!
Sweet potatos or yams? anyone know?
Yippee, here’s my handy dandy spiralizer again. LOVE this gadget! The sweet potato noodles are so vibrant.
Bruschetta Brie Pasta has the perfect blend of tomatoes, garlic, and brie. A perfect summertime pasta dish.
The summer has been busy for us so far. Not busy is a bad way, but busy in a good way. We are either having playdates, or heading out to do something, visiting friends, going for BBQ’s etc, etc. This past weekend we visited a friends’ cottage about an hour ad a half from our town. The boys had so much fun. They went out on the lake on a paddle boat, went tubing, ran around the outdoors, chased snakes around (yuk!), and just had an all around great time.
While we were having snacks something scary happened though. I was sitting outside on the patio with the other adults, the kids came around to grab a bite to eat. Suddenly my little guy Emmett who is 5 starts tugging on my arm and he has tears in his eyes, but couldn’t speak. I wasn’t sure what was happening at first so I asked him if he was choking and he nodded…He was Choking!! I jumped out of my seat and quickly gave him the Heimlich maneuver. He coughed and cleared out the watermelon and nachos that he was choking on.
Luckily a nurse friend was there too, because I almost blanked out on what to do.
We were over an hour away from any kind of medical help. This sure was a reminder to everyone to brush up on their cpr/first aid training.
If you haven’t had any training or have a foggy memory of it, you should really brush up on it. You never know when something can happen. It was so scary, but luckily all turned out well.
Anyhow, I have got a great summery recipe for you guys today.
Cooking dinner in the summer can sometimes be such a pain. Especially when it’s nice out and you’re enjoying the day outdoors.
That’s why I think you guys are going to love this recipe. It’s actually super quick and easy, but it presents so well. It looks like a gourmet meal, but it doesn’t take much longer than a box of mac and cheese to make.
I personally like white wine, so I think that a chilled summery white wine would be perfect with this meal. I’m kind of regretting not thinking of that last night. Bummer. Oh well, next time.
Try out the recipe below. I promise you’ll love it.
I love fresh heirloom tomatoes. They are so colourful and bright.
The brie cheese starting to melt on the pasta looks so good. Actually, it was so good. This pasta is a must try.
