  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

  • 2 cups creamy caesar salad dressing
  • 1 jar roasted red bell peppers, drained and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan or Italian-blend cheese

  • Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease a 9×13 inch casserole dish. In a medium bowl stir together alfredo sauce and caesar dressing. Set aside.
  • Cook the lasagna noodles al dente according to package instructions. (Do not over-cook, they will continue cooking slightly later in the oven) Drain and set aside.
  • While the noodles are boiling, prepare the chicken. Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Cook chicken in a pan or skillet over medium heat 3-5 minutes on each side until cooked through, transfer to a cutting board and chop into 1/2-inch chunks.
  • Lay three lasagna noodles side-by-side in the bottom of your prepared baking dish. Spread 1/3 of the sauce mixture on top, sprinkle with 1/3 of the chicken pieces, 1/2 of the red peppers, and sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese.
  • Repeat layers. (3 noodles, 1/3 of sauce, 1/3 of chicken, remaining red peppers, 1/3 of cheese).¬†Finish layering your final 3 noodles, remaining sauce, remaining chicken, and remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese is melty and sauce is heated through all layers. Top with fresh basil and tomatoes if desired and serve.
