Happy Mardi Gras!

In honor of Mardi Gras today, I thought I'd share a recipe with you. I made this for the first time during the Superbowl and wouldn't ya know those Saints won?!?!?

Anyway, here is Cajun Chicken Lasagna:

1 package lasagna noodles (I always use the kind you don't have to cook beforehand)
1 lb. andouille sausage (I couldn't find this, so I used hot sausage)
1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into chunks
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
2 (10 oz.) containers Alfredo sauce, divided
1 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large skillet over med-high heat, combine sausage, chicken, Cajun seasoning and sage.  Cook until chicken and sausage is no longer pink. Remove meat from skillet using slotted spoon and set aside.  Saute onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic until tender. Remove from heat and sstir in cooked meat and one container Alfredo sauce.
Lightly grease 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover bottom of dish with lasagna noodles, then spread 1/2 meat mixture over top of noodles. Repeat layers, and cover with a layer of noodles. Spread remaining Alfredo sauce and top with cheeses. *I found that it tasted a bit heavy on the alfredo sauce, so perhaps try cutting the called for sauce to 1 1/2 containers*
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

I must say this is delicious, but quite fattening! But it is Fat Tuesday, so enjoy!!
