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 7 freestyle smart points each.

  1. 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!!!

    This may be a dumb questions but what is light fresh cream?

  3. 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?

      • I’ll try! Going to make with zoodles tonight. Will keep you posted so for calculated 27 for sauce will dive into it! Thanks!

          • How do you reframe from going back for more?!?!??
