Cooking every night means I have tried so many great recipes I want to share! However, it is ridiculously difficult to find those couple of minutes it takes to get them on here. I am forever wishing I could be one of those put together people that has a nice, weekly “post a recipe day”. Nope. It’s been three months and today I’m overloading you with four new recipes (three main dishes and a side). What can I say? This is
not always hardly ever my first priority these days. haha
In spite of my terrible recipe posting habits, you HAVE to try this one, guys!!! It’s sooooooooooo gooooooood. Well, if you like cheese and sausage and white sauce lasagna. It’s not one of those two second assembly meals that I love so much, but it’s worth it when you have slightly more prep time on a weekend or something. Also, lasagna (usually) means some solid leftovers, so it’ll save you time in the long run! 😀 Just some minor edits (like adding in chicken) from one of my favs, Taste of Home.
Three Cheese Sausage Lasagna
- 1 pound pork sausage
- 4 – 5 boneless chicken thighs cooked/shredded*
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 3 cups milk
- 10 lasagna noodles, cooked/drained
- 6 + slices mozzarella cheese**
- 6 + slices provolone cheese**
- 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
*I throw it in the crock-pot with a liberal amount of poultry seasoning and cook on low 7 – 8 hours or high 4 – 5 hours or done.
**I wrote 6 + for the slices of cheese because the packages usually come with a couple more than that and I tend to use them up on this lasagna vs. finding a random use later.
Cook sausage until browned/cooked through. Meanwhile, cook butter and garlic in a saucepan until butter is melted. Whisk in flour and seasonings. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened. Set aside. In a greased baking dish (9″ x 13″), pour a fourth of the sauce. Cover with one layer of noodles, half of the sausage, and shredded chicken. Place a layer of halved cheese slices over top.
Repeat layers once. Then, just kind of keep layering with what you have left until it’s gone. Just make sure to have a layer of cheese slices on top. Then sprinkle over it all with parmesan cheese and bake 30 – 35 minutes or heated completely. Yum!
