Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll Ups

MMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!! This was Olive Garden worthy!!! (in my opinion!!)
I sort of mixed things up on a Lasagna Roll Up recipe... I had the Idea from the Chicken Lasagna... but it really is nothing like it! Try it and you will see!! I found the recipe for the Alfredo sauce here on foodnetwork.com and the way to cook the chicken also... from there it just became what it is.

The Chicken:
2 large *thaw* chicken breasts sliced (fajita style)
2 *fresh* cloves garlic, minced
1 T Olive Oil
1 1/2 C. FRESH Spinach leaves
Heat oil in pan with garlic until the aroma builds... Do not burn or over brown. Cook until chicken is fully cooked then add the Spinach and stir until the leaves are wilted into it.

The Sauce
:
4T Butter
1 clove fresh garlic, minced
2T flour
2 C Cream
1/2 C. milk
1C Fresh grated parmesan

In a medium sauce pan heat butter and garlic and add flour once butter is melted and aroma of garlic is building. Add the Cream and milk and stir then add the parmesan and bring to a boil and continue to stir frequently over a medium low heat as it boils and thickens. (I added a dash of pepper to it as well)

The Pasta/Filling:
24 oz (1LB 8oz) cottage cheese
1 egg
1/4 C Parmesan cheese
Mozzarella cheese
Parsley
salt and pepper
9 lasagna noodles cooked al dente

Mix the cottage cheese, egg, parmesan, mozzarella, and a dash of salt and pepper and Parsley til it looks good. Spoon on the cooked noodles and roll up and place in 9X13 pan with a little sauce spread on the bottom. **You will have left over filling but only 9 rollups fit in the pan**

Mix some sauce into the chicken... just enough to spoon on top of each roll up (you will have left over sauce I still had about a 1/2 cup or just a little more left over) and then top with a little more parmesan and mozzarella cheese and diced tomatoes for color (I added the tomatoes after the picture was taken)

Cook in oven at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Until Cheese is starting to golden and sauce is bubbling.

Let sit for 10 minutes after removal from the oven. Serve and Enjoy!

That looks so good I can't wait to try it.
By the way is there a way I can print just the recipe?

Thank you

Unfortunately at this time, we don't have that option. It's something we're working on though. Hope you enjoy the roll ups, they're really good!

Made these tonight! They were great! We all loved them! I think I might have rolled them wrong, or not quite sure how you rolled them, because I got 12 to fit in a 9x13 pan easy- the stuffing kept coming out if I tried to put too much in. Thanks for the great recipe!
