  1. Confused, do i buy Alfredo sauce or are the first ingredients what you are calling the Alfredo sauce??

    1. The first ingredients are part of the filling. You need 3 cups of prepared alfredo sauce for this recipe as stated in the ingredient list.

  2. We made this on Friday and it was amazing!! When my husband tried it he said if the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach that he has never loved me more! He said this lasagna was on another level! My daughter loved it too! She ate every last bit on her plate. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe! We are having the leftovers for dinner tonight ????

    1. That makes me so happy. Some of our favorite meals have been happy accidents in the kitchen and I’m thrilled your family loves this, too!

    1. Oh sure, it will be even more decadent. I specified because it’s not necessary to use full fat but, it will be delicious!

      1. Thank you so much!! My husband and daughter are very excited to have this for dinner tonight!!
