Recipe of the Week (Chicken Alfredo Lasagna)

This was from a packet of recipe cards that I was given for my birthday. It turned out very nice! Everyone loved it...even David would have loved it if he would have just tried it...he's not much of an alfreo person...lol

1 jar of alfredo sauce (I made my own sauce...it will cut back on the sodium and preservatives AND it just tastes better!)
1 3/4 milk
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
12 oz. small curd cottage cheese
1/4 c grated parm cheese
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 package no boil lasagna noodles (again you can make your own for a fresher and healthier recipe using wheat flour)
4 cups shredded mozzerella cheese, divided
desired seasonings
(I also added green peppers...add whatever veggies you want!)

Preheat oven to 375. Combine alfredo sauce and milk in a large bowl. Mix well. Stir in the chicken. Set aside. Combine the cottage cheese, parm, tomatoes, onion, other veggies, and seasonings. Mix well. Set aside.
Spread 1 cup chicken mixture in the bottom of the baking dish (13x9). Cover with 3 noodles. Spoon 1 cup cottage cheese mixture over the noodles. Spread 3/4 cup chicken mixture over the cheese mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup of shredded cheese. Repeat the layers twice. Top with the remaining noodles. Top noodles with remaining chicken and cheese.
Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes. Uncover and bake until bubbly and cheese is lightly browned, 10-15 minutes longer. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! It has been awhile. I have gotten away from my blog for a bit and am really having a hard time getting back into it. I have a few recipes to post. I got a bunch of nice recipe books for Christmas and my birthday and cant wait to try them out.
I have not been weighed yet for the month of January. I have had so many health problems in the last month or so I feel like I have really gotten away from the gym. I am back now and going strong. The biggest loser has the theme this season as "NO EXCUSES"! I have to definitely adopt that this year. So now, I examine what I have accomplished in 2011. I lost 65 pounds, over 30 inches, and I went down from a 6x to a 4x!!! I have a lot of people who say, I wish I could say that, but you can! It takes time. We didn't get this way overnight. It took me 28 years to get to this size. I cant wait to see what 2012 holds in store for not just me, but all of my weight loss friends and family.
