I have been saving Tasty (Buzzfeed Food) videos on Facebook like crazy. They always look so good! So this week, I declared that I must make one thing from a saved link; and I chose these decadent Chicken Bacon Alfredo Lasagna Roll-ups.
Start by cooking lasagna noodles and filling them with a mixture of cooked chicken, bacon, and Alfredo sauce (made with butter, garlic, cream, cream cheese, and Parmesan). I made some changes to the original, using 12 noodles instead of 8 and more filling per noodle to use up all the filling. I didn't like how, in the video, there was chicken and bacon on the top instead of all contained.
Place some sauce in the bottom of a baking dish, then the roll-ups, then more sauce over the top. I reserved 1/2 of the Alfredo sauce for this purpose, not mixing all of it with the chicken.
Next, top with Mozzarella. I happened to have 8 oz of sliced mozzarella that I had no plans for, so I chose to use that instead of shredded.
Bake until golden and bubbling, and enjoy!

Spread 1/2 cup of the Alfredo sauce into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish, reserve another 1/2 cup for later.
Combine the remaining cup of sauce with the bacon and chicken to form the filling.
Spread about 1/4 cup of the filling mixture over each noodle, rolling and placing seam down in the pan.
Pour the reserved 1/2 cup of sauce over the top and sprinkle evenly with mozzarella cheese.
Cook for about 30 minutes, until it is heated through and cheese bubbles and browns.
