I’ve had nothing interesting to blog about lately, but I then I remembered this recipe, so I’m taking the easy road and just throwing ingredients at you. So there – take that internet!!!
I made this lasagna on Superbowl Sunday and it was a big hit. My only advice would be to add a bit more bleu cheese throughout the lasagna, instead of just on top. And please, don’t get all Emeril on your bad self and “BAM! Kick it up a notch”. It doesn’t need any more wing sauce, and your stomach will thank you for leaving well enough alone.
You can bake this in either the crockpot (as the recipe reads) or in the oven in a large pan.
Uncooked lasagna noodles – small box
4 cooked, chopped chicken breast halves
1 jar of prepared pasta sauce
1 cup buffalo wing sauce
3 red, yellow, or orange bell peppers
1 tub of ricotta cheese (15 oz)
2 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella and cheddar blend)
1/2 cup bleu cheese crumbles (Per my note above, I’d go with a full cup)
1/4 cup of water (add at very end)
In a large glass bowl, combine cooked and chopped chicken breast, the pasta sauce, and 1 cup of buffalo wing sauce.
Ladle a big spoonful of the sauce into the bottom of your crock pot. Cover with a layer of uncooked lasagna noodles. You’ll have to break them to get a proper fit. Smear a layer of ricotta cheese on top of the noodles. Add a layer of chopped bell pepper. Sprinkle on a handful of shredded cheese.
Repeat layers until you run out of ingredients.
Add the bleu cheese crumbles, if desired. Put the 1/4 cup of water into your empty pasta sauce jar and shake. Pour the liquid over the top of the entire lasagna.
Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for 4-5. When cooking time is complete, unplug and take off the lid of the crock. Let it sit for 20 minutes before cutting into. Or it will fall apart. Ask me how I know this…
Alternatively, you could prepare this in an 11 x 13 pan and bake it in your over for 30 to 45 minutes at around 350 degrees.
I recommend drinking a tall glass of milk with this as it will cut the heat from the wing sauce and save you from gastrointestinal distress later.
