Creamy chicken & bacon alfredo lasagna

January 22, 2017

I wanted to make a lasagna but switch it up a bit, so say hello to this delicious chicken & bacon alfredo lasagna. I made the sauce from scratch and it is so good. I think this one will be a new favorite in my house, and my husband took the left overs to work for the guys to enjoy, it got two thumbs up! Makes 9 servings at 8 smart points each.

    Made this last night and it turned out really good!!! I added some more seasoning and also used whole wheat lasagna. I also thickened the sauce some. It was 9p when I put the recipe in the WW builder but worth it!!!

    Have you ever just calculated the Alfredo sauce part? Looks amazing to serve with pasta or zucchini

      No I haven’t but I bet it would be simple enough to figure out on the WW app maybe?
