Who said lasagna has to be red? Not me, that is for sure! My absolute favorite alfredo sauce makes a perfect lasagna that is layered with chicken, broccoli, cheese and maybe even some bacon. Get a salad and garlic bread ready, and be prepared to collect lots of compliments!

In high school, my birthday dinner request was almost always fettuccine alfredo. My mom had the perfect recipe for alfredo sauce that was super rich and creamy.

That stuff puts all other alfredo to shame to the point where I almost never order alfredo out any more. Luckily I shared the recipe on the blog, so you can make it too!

Just be warned that the jarred stuff will never do again after you’ve had it. Luckily it only takes a handful of ingredients and it will be ready by the time the pasta is boiled.

So when we threw down a lasagna cook-off challenge to our family and friends, I knew an alfredo lasagna at least needed to be considered. We love hosting the cook-offs and it is so much fun to see what everyone makes.

We had 13 lasagnas to judge and about 35 people judging.  As the date grew near, my wheels really started churning.

I knew from past experience with this crazy set of judges and from some murmurs that some people would only vote for the traditional lasagna. To them a lasagna is layers of tomato sauce and cheese.

But I figured there would at least be a few judges with an open mind and plenty of traditional lasagnas to go around. So I thought standing out with a white lasagna was a gamble worth taking.

Besides, my mother-in-law is the self professed queen of lasagna and I wasn’t sure I wanted to go toe to toe with her! She had me shaking in my apron! 😂

I made a test run lasagna ahead of time and it was every bit as good as I had envisioned. It was everything I love about fettuccine alfredo with the added goodness of some golden melted mozzarella on top!

My husband, Little Dude and the neighbor kid were all fans to. So it was decided that alfredo lasagna would be my entry.

The night before the competition I decided to cook up some bacon to crumble in. I knew I needed to pull out all of the stops and bacon is almost always better!

As the votes were cast I was hearing murmurs about my lasagna. For a minute I thought I had a chance.

But in the end, I placed second. My mother-in-law is no longer the self professed queen of lasagna, she is winner’s plaque certified!

So if you are up for trying a second place lasagna, you should definitely give this one a go. It is sure to be a hit with kids and grown-ups alike!

This looks amazing! I love the idea of Alfredo in lasagna, but I would have never thought of adding broccoli! Great twist!

We really loved it and my husband went crazy over the practice run! I should have a hidden camera on the voting containers to see who voted for what in the end ;-)

This looks like the perfect lasagna to me. I can't believe that I have never thought of this. I always think of lasagna being made from beef, but I do like chicken better! I definitely need to try this recipe.

It is funny how you get one thing in your head, but lasagna is a great vehicle for trying different combinations of meats, cheeses and sauce!
