Tammy's Review: 

This is a delicious, flavorful, creamy white lasagna! If you love chicken alfredo, or white sauces in general, you should try this lasagna. :) It's a nice change from regular lasagna -- I love it! My rating: 10/10

Yum!

This definitely gets a 10 from us...the spices and creaminess blend really well, making this a hit Italian meal anytime. I've done both the 9" and a doubled batch in a 13x9; I've also made large batches and frozen this- it freezes beautifully. It's been a huge hit when we've taken it places, too.

Even Better the Second Day!

We loved the creaminess of this; I daresay it was even better the second day! We doubled it and made the 9 x 13 panful.

A few changes

Didn't have ricotta/cottage cheese, lasagne noodles, or mozzarella cheese... So made an alfredo type sauce for linguine with grilled chicken. It was awesome... and gone. Will make both in the future.

Alfredo lovers, you are going to love this lasagna

This was a hit in my family because they love white sauces. I was so excited to try it and it was so creamy and yummy. I will be making this again & again.

Go To Casserole

I found this recipe about a year after my sister-in-law made a white chicken lasagna after I had my second child. Her's wasn't homemade, so I had to search a little while and lucky for me, I found this site! This casserole has become my "Go To" whenever I plan to bring a meal to a family with a new baby. My dilemma is finding an equally terrific dessert to pair with it, since this is so rich and yummy! The best part is I double the recipe and we get to have some at home as well! Thanks for sharing all your recipes!

YUM!!

Made this today for lunch and it was wonderful. I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese and doubled the sauce and noodles to have a full pan for my big family. We will definately make this again.

Yummy mistake

I was quickly making this dish for my husband to pop in the oven for the next night's dinner and I forgot to add the cottage cheese! Actually I was planning to use ricotta. So what happened was a layer of no boil noodles, sauce, chicken and mozz, repeat... But it turned out very well! I may not add the extra cheese since it was plenty flavorful and filling! Dh would like me to add some veggies next time to make it a balanced one-dish meal.

Excellent

I made this for supper tonight and it was so tasty! I only made an 8x8 pan (as the recipe calls for) and thought it looked a bit small as with the 'normal' lasagna I make a 9x13. I did have some sides with it but it was so rich and cheesy that it did our family (of 5) with 2 pieces left over. I was a wonderful change from the usual lasagna. I will be making it again, although not too often as it is rich and cream cheese up here in Canada is rather pricy. But a very nice classy dish for a special treat!

Oh my cheesy goodness!!

We had a casserole shower for a lady who is expecting and I thought I would try this recipe. I quadroupled it and made one for us (8 in our family) for Sunday dinner. It was so yummy!!! Not diet friendly but so, so yummy!!

Dynamite!

Terrific flavor and such a hit with my family of chicken lovers. Seriously, such a great recipe- it will become a regular in my rotation. It looked good (which is why I tried it:), but the flavor was even better than I anticipated. Thanks Tammy!

Yummy and Cheesy

This recipe was a big success with my family. I especially enjoyed how cheesy it is. I had some problems with it being runny when cut in small servings, but I also have that problem when using cottage cheese in regular lasagna. I think I will substitute ricotta next time, as it works with the other.

So Good!

Everyone in the family just loved this. I used ricotta cheese in place of the cottage cheese because I had some left over from the traditional lasagne I made last weekend. The flavor of this is wonderful. My children put dibs on the leftover pieces, which were all gone by the next afternoon.

Another big hit at my house

I actually had people fighting over who would get the last piece. This is so very good and not at all difficult to prepare. I usually prepare my meals while my kids are at school and this holds very well until it's time to heat it up.

very good

It was such a different kind of lasagna! I doubled the recipe and put it in a bigger pan. I added extra garlic and used my house seasoning liberally on the onions while they were cooking. I added some left over sausage (left over from Tammy's Easy Pizza) and a little sharp cheddar. I also sprinkled the top with some crushed red pepper to give it a little zing and it just turned out so good. I would make it again for sure. My whole family really liked it, even my mother in law!hehe Thanks Tammy
