9 dried whole wheat or whole grain lasagna noodles
2 (10 ounce) jars of light Alfredo sauce
3 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
3 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1 cup bottled roasted red sweet peppers, drained and chopped (I used Asparagus and chopped it up, I’d like to try broccoli at some point too!)
½ cup Sargento reduced-fat 4 cheese Italian blend or reduced-fat mozzarella, shredded
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain; rinse with cold water; drain again.
While the noodles boil, cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces and saute it with a little oil, salt and pepper until it’s cooked through. (you can also use pre-cooked chicken).
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine both jars of Alfredo sauce, lemon juice and black pepper. Stir in cooked chicken, spinach and red peppers. (I used asparagus instead, try broccoli too!)
Lightly coat a 12 or 13x9x2-inch baking dish or 3-quart rectangular casserole with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange 3 cooked noodles in bottom of dish. (I cut this recipe in half and made it in a smaller casserole dish, PERFECT! This served, me, my husband and my bestie! Yeah we ate it all)
Top with one-third chicken mixture. (I then added a quarter cup of low fat shredded mozzarella cheese) Repeat layers twice.
Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered for 10 minutes more or until cheese is melted. How yummy does this look??!!!
Let stand 15 minutes before serving. I let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes and got this 🙂 Still yummy!
But I say wait the full 15 minutes because when I dove in for seconds, I got this lovely piece!! 🙂
This casserole freezes great.
Makes 9 servings (Mine served 3 LARGE servings :))
