Chicken Alfredo Rolls (or Lasagna) #RecipeOfTheDay #recipes #cooking #mom #homemade #mommy #food #foodie

untitledidsouifWith the coming of October and colder temperatures, what better way than to curl up by a nice fire with a glass of wine and a yummy Chicken Alfredo roll.

A yummy what? Chicken Alfredo in a roll? Yep.

untitlediufosiuNow the great thing about this recipe, is you can make it as a roll, as a lasagna casserole, or you can even make it into a ziti bake with penne pasta, which I have done, too.

Really, the options are completely up to you, but I have to say for a mom perspective, having fun roll-ups is a rather inventive way to entice kids to eat something different.

Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 1/4 Cup of Flour
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Onion Powder to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 Teaspoons chopped Parsley (optional)
  • 2 Teaspoons chopped Basil (optional)
  • 3 Cups of Milk
  • 1 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 Cup of Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 3 Cups of Shredded Chicken
  • 8 Cooked Lasagna Noodles

You can either use pre-cooked chicken or canned chicken; however, I take raw chicken breasts and grill them up in a pan, seasoning them with salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper.

After the chicken is done, I shred it with a fork. It’s up to you on what type of chicken you want to use.

Boil desired noodles, whether lasagna noodles or penne. Lay out the lasagna noodles when done on a non-stick pan or some wax paper. *Caution, prepare the sauce mixture first or else the pasta clumps up or becomes dry.

FOR THE SAUCE

In a skillet, melt the 5 tablespoons of butter. Add in the garlic and onion, and let it sauté for a minute. Add in the flour and whisk until you have a nice rue. Add in milk and heavy cream and stir until combined.

Once you have your finished roll-ups, spread some of the mixture you set aside in a casserole dish, and lay the rolls on the mixture.

Cover the rolls with the rest of the set aside mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
