CHICKEN SPINACH SHRIMP ALFREDO LASAGNA

.Do you have got a family member that doesn’t care for shrimp and any other that loves it? Or one that doesn’t take care of chicken and some other that loves chicken? Well, that is a suitable dinner to satisfy the love for each! Chicken Spinach Shrimp Alfredo Lasagna will fulfill the complete family.

Half of this lasagna is made with chicken and the other half of made with shrimp. Two brilliant flavors in one scrumptious meal will really have the family loving’ this lasagna.

When I was at work on Friday, I went to talk to my boss approximately the admits that I’d be doing that day and we began speaking food. Corrie (my boss) informed me approximately whilst she had made an Alfredo lasagna with both chicken and shrimp. As she explained how she made it, my mind turned into heaven considering making this! It sounded excellent! All-day, and believe me it becomes ONE LONG day, I turned into first-rate excited about making this lasagna over the weekend. Just to will let you understand how long of a day it was, I worked until 1:38 am. I had 3 admits, which is a lot for one day and then worked the next day to finish them up. But, it was Friday and this is simply what takes place on Fridays! Being a Hospice Admission RN is lots of work however I adore it.

Corrie advised me that she used the larger shrimp but I determined to make it simpler and simply had my guy grasp the small, frozen, fully cooked shrimp while he went to the store which worked out fine.

So as I made this excellent Alfredo sauce, I become exquisite excited and could only imagine how delicious this became going to be. It smelt so accurate.

Let me let you know how desirable this sauce is! It is AMAZING!!! I don’t have a cross-to Alfredo sauce however as I searched some fellow blogger’s recipes, I ran across The Recipe Critic’s, The Best Homemade Alfredo Sauce Ever. So I determined I might adapt my recipe from hers. Have you checked out her blog? I’m certain you have but in case you haven’t, you NEED to get over to her website and take a look at out all of her delicious recipes. They all sound SO delicious! So what I did differently became basically double the recipe and introduced some extra substances. I introduced onions, extra garlic, oregano, basil and I also delivered clean spinach to the sauce. Did I say great? Oh my, so true! So glad I observed her recipe. Make positive to go on over to her weblog, you’ll be so satisfied you did.

N the interim, my fowl breasts were boiling on the range, I was slicing the tomatoes in half lengthwise and grating the cheese. Oooh, and the great component, besides ingesting this scrumptious meal, become setting all of it collectively. I had been making lasagna forever and my Classic Lasagna has been a success with all people that have attempted it and has been my pass-to lasagna recipe for 30+ years. But… and I have to say but, this recipe is incredibly exact and now I even have some other go-to recipe for lasagna. I in my view preferred the chicken better and Corrie stated she appreciated the shrimp better. What a brilliant concept of having each hen and shrimp in a single lasagna! Thanks, Corrie for the scrumptious recipe! We LOVED it!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup onions
  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 cups fresh spinach, I chopped into large pieces
  • 2 chicken breast
  • 1 lb bag small cooked shrimp, frozen
  • 15-18 lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 16 oz ricotta cheese
  • 24-32 oz mozzarella, if you love cheese, use 32 oz

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
For The Sauce
  1. In a large saucepan over low heat, add butter, cream cheese, and chopped onions.
  2. Stir and when almost melted, add heavy whipping cream, stir.
  3. Next add garlic, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
  4. Whisk and cook on low until melted.
  5. Sprinkle in Parmesan cheese and cook until it thickens up a bit, stirring often (approximately 15 minutes).
  6. Add spinach leaves and stir.
For the Chicken and Shrimp
  1. Put chicken breasts into a pan, cover with water and boil until done, then drain, shred and set aside.
  2. Defrost frozen shrimp under cold water for 5 minutes in a strainer.
  3. Cook lasagna noodles to al dente.
  4. While sauce is cooking, cut grape tomatoes in half set aside.
To Assemble
  1. In a large baking/casserole dish (seriously a roasting pan is more the size you’ll need), lightly spray with a nonstick spray and add a few large spoonfuls of sauce to the bottom of the dish.
  2. Put 5-6 lasagna noodles over sauce.
  3. Spoon 1/3 of the ricotta cheese on top of noodles and spread evenly.
  4. Place half the shrimp on one half of the noodles and half of the chicken on the other side (so one side is shrimp, the other side is chicken).
  5. Add sliced tomatoes on top of both the shrimp and chicken.
  6. Pour 1/3 of the sauce over shrimp and chicken.
  7. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese.
  8. Add another 5-6 lasagna noodles, ricotta cheese, remaining shrimp and chicken.
  9. Pour another 1/3 sauce, add 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese.
  10. Add the remaining noodles and on top of the third layer of noodles, add remaining ricotta cheese, sauce, and top with remaining mozzarella cheese.
  11. Spray a large piece of foil with a nonstick spray and cover lasagna (a tip I learned of The Recipe Critic’s post, which I NEVER thought about doing before. What a great idea to keep the cheese from sticking).
  12. Place baking dish on a large cookie sheet to catch any liquid spills.
  13. Cook for 60-70 minutes, then remove foil and cook for an additional 10 minutes or so to brown the cheese a bit.
  14. Remove from oven, let rest for a few before serving.
  15. Enjoy!
