Ingredients

4 skinned and boned chicken breasts
8 ounces ground mild Italian pork sausage
1 (1.25-ounce) envelope Alfredo sauce mix
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Parmesan cheese
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
2 plum tomatoes, diced

Preparation

Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Set aside.

Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain and set aside.

Prepare Alfredo sauce according to package directions; set aside.

Combine shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.

Stir together sausage, spinach, ricotta cheese, and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese mixture. Spoon mixture evenly down center of each chicken breast, and roll up, jellyroll fashion. Arrange chicken rolls, seam side down, in a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish. Pour Alfredo sauce over chicken, and sprinkle evenly with remaining 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese mixture.

Bake at 350° for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until chicken is done. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut chicken rolls into slices. Serve with sauce; sprinkle evenly with diced tomatoes just before serving.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used McCormick Creamy Garlic Alfredo Pasta Sauce Blend.
