This lasagna was delicious! I used a red pepper since that was what I had and it added more color to the dish. I used frozen grilled chicken nuggets from Schwan's that I had on hand - I warmed them up first in microwave. The kitchen smelled fantastic while it was cooking and I was definitely pleased with the results. Easy to make and lower calories -- 2 thumbs up!
