Chicken Cheese Lasagna

Ready in 45 minutes

This creamy pasta dish gives an old favorite a new twist! Three cheeses and chicken blended with the fresh taste of spinach make it a real crowd-pleaser. Try it served with a green salad and a light dessert. --- Mary Ann Kosmas, Minneapolis, Minnesota

"This was delicious and fun to make. I added a carton chopped portabello mushrooms to the onion and garlic saute for added flavor. It needed a tad bit more salt than the recipe called for. Fabulous otherwise."
