Haven't tried this yet but it looks interesting! A little something different for those who are tired of the traditional Lasagna. I would be tempted to add additional layers of cheese, because I love cheese!

I made the Better Homes and Gardens version of this (http://www.bhg.com/recipe/andouille-chicken-lasanga/), and it was time consuming, but good. I made my own Alfredo sauce because I prefer it to the jarred, and I thought there was one layer too many - next time I would just use 12 lasagna noodles and do two layers of the chicken/alfredo. My third layer ended up being about 1/2c of filling, which was really bare. I found a package of andouille sausage at Wegmans, it was only 12 ounces, but I figured that was enough. I may add more vegetables next time too - maybe some carrot and mushroom, just to make the filling very veg and meat friendly.
I made this for dinner today for my parents. My dad did not like it (but he's not an alfredo fan) but my mom & I definitely did. I would decrease the cajun seasoning next time but other than that, very tasty. Thanks for sharing. Took most home for my family:)
This was awesome! The sausage I bought was raw, so instead of slicing it I just removed the casing and crumbled it. I cooked the meat and veggies together to save time. I had to drain it before adding the Alfredo b/c my sausage was raw. I made my recipe#417462 recipe (doubled) for the Alfredo sauce. I took it to work and everyone loved it!!!
