Chicken Alfredo and Pesto Vegetable Lasagna Recipe

Updated on April 29, 2017
4.8 stars from 12 ratings of Chicken Alfredo and Pesto Vegetable Lasagna

I created and completely fell in love with this lasagna recipe. It's warm and comforting, with amazing flavors that blend wonderfully. It has chicken, veggies, cheese, and pasta making it truly a perfect meal in one pan!

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour 20 min
Cook time: 50 min
Ready in: 2 hours 10 min
Yields: 13x9inch lasagna serves 8-12 people

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs raw chicken breast
  • 3 cups mixed vegetables
  • 2 15 oz jars alfredo sauce
  • 8 oz jar pesto sauce
  • 1 box lasagna noodles, no boil/oven ready variety
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 12 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 28 oz ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup milk

A Little Info About the Ingredients:

  • Use no-boil noodles. This lasagna recipe is already quite a bit of work. I ask that you use "no boil" lasagna noodles to save you time. If you wish to boil your noodles first, follow the box directions and reduce bake time by 15 minutes.
  • Use whole milk. Whole milk varieties of mozzarella and ricotta should be used.
  • Use veggies that soften well. For the mixed vegetables, try to use varieties that soften once cooked. To save time, I recommend using a bag of frozen veggies that are already mostly chopped for you. As an example I used a mixed bag of broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, and yellow squash and carrots. I then added a good portion of frozen spinach. I thawed them slightly before measuring out the 3 cups.
  • Make your own pesto. Pesto sauce can sometimes be found jarred with the other pasta sauce. If your store doesn't carry it in the past isle look around the gourmet cheese section. If you cant find it in either section you'll have to make your own. A favorite author of mine, Vespawoolf has a wonderful hub on making pesto.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. In a medium bowl combine the Alfredo sauce with 1 cup of milk.
  2. Add the 1/3 cup olive oil and 1/2 cup of the alfredo sauce to a 9x13 pan.
  3. Chop the chicken breasts into roughly 1/2 inch cubes. Cook in a large skillet with the 2 tablespoons of butter just until cooked. Remove from heat.
  4. Measure out your chopped veggies (see note on ingredients about this), and cook them in the microwave covered until they are just tender. Keep in mind they will continue to cook later. Once cooked, combine the veggies with the pesto sauce.
  5. In a medium to large bowl, combine the mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, and egg.
  6. Now you're ready to layer. Take your uncooked "oven-ready/no-boil" lasagna noodles and lay on the bottom of your 13x9 inch pan. leave about a half inch space between noodles... give or take. It doesn't have to be perfect.
  7. Spread half of the cheese mixture over the noodles.
  8. Now spread out half of the veggie mixture and sprinkle with half of the cooked chicken.
  9. Reserve 2/3 cup of the alfredo sauce and ladle half of whats left over the chicken.
  10. Repeat steps 6-9. Add your last layer of noodles and completely cover with the reserved 2/3 cup sauce.
  11. Cover lasagna with aluminum foil and bake in a 375'F oven for 50 minutes. To avoid a mess place pan on a cookie sheet in the oven.
  12. Cool on a wire rack 15 minutes before serving.

Wonderful idea for cutting the carbs ^_^ I'm so happy you like the recipe and found the entire hub useful, including my favorite pesto recipe ^_^ Enjoy!! Thank you for your wonderful comment!

      Hello Mama Kim. I like this recipe. It is perfect for me. I am learning how to a modified vegetarian so the chicken works great. I'm diabetic too. I never thought about lasagna as a meal because of the carb count of the noodles. But, I realized reading your article I build the lasagna to size by layers for my carb requirements. Awesome - thank you. And, I learned something awesome. I did not know there were no boil noodles. I'm a single OG = old guy and proud of it and that is perfect for me. Thank You. Oh yeah, thanks for the BONUS!

      Tim This is surely an 8 course meal in my book

So far I've kept my personal facebook out of hubpages but I have a Mama Kim page. What I really want is Mama Kim for a full facebook profile but it denies the use of Mama as a first name... If I open a less private facebook account I will also friend you.. and many others here on hubpages. (which I hope to do sometime this month) Thank you again for your comment and share, it's greatly appreciated ^_^

      Thanks for stopping by Vespa. I'm in the same boat, my husband isn't a veggie eater either. Next time I make it I'm going to try using the only veggies he eats... potatoes, carrots, peas and corn. I think it will be better the way I originally made it but we'll see. I'm Italian and the pesto recipe has been passed down in the family. I hope you enjoy!!

      This sounds fabulous. I'm sure my husband would love it. He's not a big veggie eater, but with the chicken and sauce he wouldn't even notice. I love the bonus pesto recipe, too. : ) Thanks so much!
