Buffalo Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

Last week I reached 3,000 followers on Instagram (yay!)  To thank all of my awesome fans and followers I gave them the opportunity to choose from three of the most popular recipes from my cookbook, Buffalo Style, one of which would be released on the blog this week!

And this, my friends, was the winner! Creamy, cheesy, spicy comfort food at it’s finest, Buffalo Chicken Alfredo Lasagna!

I served this dish at one of my San Diego Supper Club Dinners before the release of the cookbook and it was a huge hit!

Since the release of the cookbook last fall I’ve had several friends, family members and fans reach out, telling me that they made this recipe and how much they loved it!

Not only is this a fan favorite, but it’s also a personal favorite. Lasagna was one of my favorite dishes growing up and something my Dad would always make for us on “special occasions”!

The nostalgia of the dish combined with my buffalo alfredo twist, made this a cookbook favorite for me!
