Expert Tips

  • Ground turkey can be used in place of the chicken in this lasagna.
  • To quickly thaw spinach, cut small slit in center of each pouch, microwave each on HIGH for 2 to 3 minutes or until thawed.
  • Prepare and bake lasagna, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. To reheat, spray a piece of aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray and cover pan lightly with foil. Heat in a 350°F. oven until hot, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Serve this hearty chicken lasagna with a tossed green salad that includes your favorite chopped vegetables such as tomatoes and cucumbers. Add sliced garlic bread to complete the menu.
