I often like to make a less traditional lasagna and have found that chicken and mushrooms make a simple, delicious combination. The DH and I love spicy so I really crank up the heat by adding a bunch of crushed red pepper but this is not necessary for 'normal' people. Once in a while I like to add spinach to this. You could probably add just about anything and it would be good. Using low-fat ingredients doesn't seem to change the outcome. I don't usually measure the cheeses. I use what "looks" right.

This as awesome lasagna! I first made this about 2 1/2 years ago and have passed it on to family because they thought it was great too. I did make a few changes. First I'm famous for not really measuring when I make something like this but I usually do well just eye-balling. I used boneless chicken breasts that I sauteed with the mushrooms, used a store bought "fresh" roasted red pepper & tomato sauce instead of the crushed tomatoes and just added fresh basil and more cheese like the recipe mentions . I am sure the recipe would be great either way. Great change from regular lasagna that freezes really well! yum yum!!
