My Lasagna Dilemma
In my Crazy Week post last week, I mentioned the fact that I had made 2 kinds of Lasagna for a dinner for 15. I got several comments about the lasagna.
Comment #1 My dear son, living in the Middle East, asked me to please stop talking about Lasagna, as that is the one American dish that he is unable to make for himself in Jordan. (He can't find the ingredients, or anything similar.)
Comments #2 & #3 A couple of ladies asked for my recipe.
So, I am having to not honor my son's request (and make him very sad), in order to honor the requests of two of my faithful readers. Sorry Jeremiah! I'll make you some when you get home ... in 97 days.
Laurel's Chicken Lasagna
This makes an 11 x 15 glass casserole dish ... so you'll have to cut back the quantities a bit if you are only making a 9 x 13. Sorry!
2 lb. Cottage Cheese
1 cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese
6 cups Chicken pieces - diced and boiled
2 jars Alfredo Sauce (15 oz. each) - set aside 1/3 cup
1/2 Onion - chopped
1 can Mushroom Pieces (6.5 oz)
1/4 cup Milk - use to clean out jars and add to mix
6 pieces Bacon - cooked and crumbled
Using an 11 x 15 glass casserole dish ...
Put 1/3 cup Alfredo Sauce and 1/3 cup Water in dish. Mix and spread.
Layer (5 times) ...
Bowl #1 Mix
Bowl #2 Mix
Drizzle 1/8 cup Water over top layer.
Cover with foil. Bake at 375 for 50 minutes. Remove foil. Top with 1-2 cups Grated Mozzarella Cheese. Bake an additional 5-10 minutes.
I created this dish a few years ago, and it gets rave reviews every time I serve it to company (which is often). Let me know if your families enjoy it!
