Chicken Cordon Bleu Baked Ziti

Printable Recipe

Pasta is one of our family's favorite dishes. Maybe you get sick of seeing all the pasta recipes. I'm telling you, I can't help it. I seriously am feeling this desire to pack my family up and move to Italy. Don't be surprised when it happens. 

I once ate dinner with a friend and she made what she called "Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna". It was yummy. So I thought I would try to give this idea a try. It was a hit with the whole family! 














Ingredients: 

  • 2 eggs
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup cubed cooked ham 
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken 
  • 2 cups garlic Alfredo sauce 
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 12 oz ziti pasta
Directions:

Bake pasta according to package directions. In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Blend in ricotta, Parmesan, cottage cheese and parsley.  Add in chicken, ham, and Alfredo sauce. Pour pasta into greased 9 X 13 dish.  Mix in cheese mixture. Place slices of Swiss cheese over top. Bake for 30 mins at 350F until cheese bubbles and begins to turn brown.
