This is a wonderful variation on the traditional lasagna with the added healthy benefits of spinach. I like to use whole wheat pasta and grilled chicken breast. When you can't get them to eat their spinach just serve up some of this great lasagna!
- 12 cooked lasagna noodles
- 1 lb diced chicken breast
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry)
- 2 (15 ounce) jars alfredo sauce (reserve 1 cup)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon white pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons parsley
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (reserve 1/2 cup)
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (reserve 1/2 cup)
- 15 ounces cottage cheese
- 3⁄4 cup parmesan cheese

- Mix diced chicken, spinach, alfredo sauce(all but 1 cup), salt, pepper, & garlic powder in a large bowl.
- In separate bowl, combine eggs, parsley, 1 C mozzarella cheese, 1 C cheddar cheese, all cottage cheese & parmesan cheese.
- Spray a deep 13"X 9" lasagna pan with cooking spray.

This was awesome! I halved the recipe and made in an 8 X 8 pan. I used no cook noodles, homemade alfredo, fresh spinach (sauteed in olive oil and garlic) and substituted ham for the chicken. We will make this again for sure!
I used one jar 5 cheese alfredo and one newmans alfredo and mixed them. They work together well. Everyone loves it.
I made half a recipe but oh so good. I used fresh spinach and ricotta cheese. Very filling and great flavor.
