Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

I have something a bit shocking to admit. I don’t really like lasagna.

I know I’m crazy. My siblings would always ask for it for their birthday dinner growing up and I was going “Ech.”

It’s the tomato sauce and all the cheese, particularly the ricotta or cottage cheese. You see, I have issues with texture.

I have since my childhood found lasagna recipes that I can tolerate and even some that were pretty darn good.

But I don’t make it very often. Like, ever. Because my husband doesn’t really like the tomato aspect either.

So I wanted to make a version that I knew we would both really like. And surprise, surprise: my husband gave this a 10 out of 10! That’s a first in a very long time!

It has all the noodles, sauce, and cheesy goodness of a lasagna but with chicken, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing and lots of cheese!

Give it a try because it is super good. It had enough of the buffalo kick that I had to have a big salad with lots of ranch dressing to cool it down a little.
