This easy Healthy Chicken Alfredo Lasagna recipe is lightened up with a healthier version of Alfredo sauce. It’s just as delicious, creamy and flavorful, and a little bacon just makes everything better.
I am not even a tiny bit Italian, so I won’t try and tell you that know what makes a lasagna authentic or not, but I will tell you that I love lasagna in almost any way shape or form. I think what makes lasagna amazing is when you put together good, simple ingredients, you get beautiful results.
This Healthy Chicken Alfredo Lasagna is made with a simple lighter Alfredo sauce, fresh vegetables and is still so rich and flavorful that you wont miss the full fat version at all. Add some bacon to complete the classic taste, you can also substitute the mushroom and peppers for spinach or broccoli and it will still be wonderful. or for an even healthier version you can use this Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce in this recipe as well.
