This EASY lasagna is filled with chicken, pesto, spinach, and a creamy (lightened up) white sauce. And of course a healthy dose of ricotta, because what is lasagna without ricotta??
Eric sent me this picture today from work:
Eric has this habit of putting things up on our walls with reckless abandon. Here’s the Star Wars poster that he randomly tacked up on the wall one day:
(Can’t we have NORMAL Star Wars posters? Like, with Han and Leia? At least Harrison Ford is easy on the eyes. No, I have to have Prince Xizor. (Seriously. That’s his name. Eric would know.)
And here’s the random piece of art that Charlotte painted that he taped (crooked) on the wall, MONTHS ago. The problem is that I just don’t see things after a while and I forget it’s there. Like, if I had remembered that we had a 5-year-old’s “Tree Stump and Throbbing Heart” painting on the wall in the entry way BEFORE we hosted 30 family members for Easter on Sunday, then I would have taken it down. But no. It’s just part of the decor now I guess.
Hopefully this barrage of Pesto Lasagna photos makes up for the Prince Xizor photo up there.
This lasagna is so good you guys! It’s like a mash up of all my favorite things: chicken, noodles, cheese, PESTO. Are you a pesto fanatic like me? Love that stuff. I made the white sauce a little lighter by using Greek yogurt instead of cream. But then I smothered it all with mozzarella so…take it or leave it. Oh wait there are layers of spinach in there too! I’m not completely hopeless.
If you make this lasagna, snap a photo and share on Instagram using #TheFoodCharlatan! I’d love to see it :)
