Mblah's white lasagna with chicken and spinach





Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs of chicken cooked and cubed
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (I used an Italian white cheese blend)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese for the top after baking
1 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Romano cheese plus another 1/2 cup for later
32 ounces ricotta cheese
1 tbs fresh minced garlic
1 1/2 tbs dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 10 ounce jars of Alfredo sauce
2 cups diced mushrooms
1/2 cup water
12 lasagna noodles (i made my own but u can use the box kind)
jar of basil pesto
1 10 ounce package of frozen spinach drained

Directions

In a medium bowl mix ricotta, 3 cups mozzarella, parmesan, garlic, oregano and Italian seasoning and set aside.
In a small bowl mix Alfredo, mushrooms, spinach and 1/2 cup of water.
Cook lasagna according to package.

When the noodles are done lightly brush them with the basil pesto

Next lightly grease a non stick lasagna pan and put three lasagna noodles at the bottom. Then spread ricotta mixture over noodles, add some of the cubed chicken, then the Alfredo mixture. Repeat the layers til you have three lasagna noodles on top. Cover and bake at 350 for 40 mins. Uncover and take the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan and sprinkle on top and bake til cheese melts.

Picture coming in a minute. I'm making this from my Droid and iPhone! Where there's a will there's a way and I'll post my cooking threads!!!

This is your own original recipe?

Sounds awesome...love lasagna...nice twist on the traditional!

S & F for a dinner recipe that I can share with the family...(and tell them it's from ATS...they never understand...) ...a bit of shopping to do first...not hardly up for making my own noodles..and we'll give it a go!


Tell me you suggest a wine too with this dish?

I bet a bit of freshl;y chopped basil would go very nicely with that..

As for wine I'd suggest a nice french chilled rose (rosay...can't do the funny thing above the e)

I was thinking something a bit sweeter like a Pinot Noir...something to accent the basil...I don't know...either way it sounds good and just about any wine would go well with it I suppose!

Yup my recipe. All the threads I post in the cooking forum are my own recipes.

I got a pasta maker recently at a thrift store for 8 bucks and it's a 300 Italian pasta maker
so I've been using it a lot lately lol I love it!!

I wouldn't know a wine. I'm allergic to most wine so I don't drink it.

Thanks

white wine would go well with the cheeses and the spinach etc..
but I think because of the sauce and the garlic a red would go nice too... so meet in the middle

Sounds delicious, I'm not a huge spinach fan but it sounds good in that recipe.

well, you did have a basil pesto in the list.. but freshly chopped far superior.. or just bruise the leaves a little so the oils seep out whilst cooking..

or chop it finely and sprinkle it on the bubbling surface a few minutes before finished cooking.. that way you don't kill the flavour of the basil but you also slightly infuse the flavour in the topping..

I love spinach


In this recipe it's not that much so its subtle but it adds a mice color and flavor.

Yea I brushed the noodles with the pesto. I usually put fresh basil in the ricotta mixture.
