Chicken and Spinach Lasagne — 10 Comments

  1. Katie, the invitation has been sent and I am replying with “yes”, I would love to come to lunch and enjoy your spinach pasta lasagne! Thank you. By the way, your photo looks absolutely delicious.

  2. OK, everything but the Greek yogurt and the spinach is at hand … and my kids love lasagna. But ours are big hulking leeks–about how much chopped leeks — 3/4 cup? A cup?
    And we’ll be over for the summer version … my younger daughter (11) would delight in learning how to make her own pasta, though I must say her first effort, undertaken with three cookbooks and a couple of Internet searches (I have never made noodles of any kind, so I couldn’t advise except to interpret what she was reading) wasn’t bad!

  3. I would have to say that I sometime use bechamel but more often use ricotta or cottage cheese. Your summer lasagne sounds amazing too.

  4. I didn’t used to use bechamel in our lasagne but now we usually do add it. And since we’ve been using fresh pasta, we never par cook the noodles. We just make sure that there is a bit of sauce in the bottom of the casserole before putting down the first layer of noodles.
    Mmmmm, chicken and spinach lasagne – that sounds really good!

  5. Susan, now I’m committed LOL. Thanks!
    Karen, it was probably 1 – 1 1/2 cups… A lot, but they were pretty mild. And well done for your daughter! I need to get back to making all my pasta… It really is easy – I have one of those hand-crank machines for rolling.
    Val, I can’t get cottage cheese… Although I did see it once – a tiny 3oz container for 2 euros.
    Elizabeth, I never ate spinach as a child – now I’m happy to put it in kust about everything!

  6. I was the same, Katie. I couldn’t stand spinach as a child. I couldn’t stand ANY vegetables, with the exception of beets, corn and green beans, as a child. And even those I could only tolerate in small quantities.
    I’m making up for it now though. :^)

  7. This is a great recipe! I added some sliced mushrooms the second time I made it but with or without them it’s easy and absolutely delicious!

  8. Elizabeth, carrots, and in summer green beans and sweet corn were our only fresh veggies…. Canned peas and carrots – please let me never see those again….
    manningroad, I make it a few times a year – with the easy no-cook noodles ;-))
    Tanna, deal!
    Mushrooms are a good addition!
