Over the Thanksgiving Day dinner I made this dish to share with my immediate family. This is the first time I made lasagna to serve my family. I normally prepared plain spaghetti with tomato sauce as a side dish. Why I do that. It was because I have three young children this year joining us for the Thanksgiving dinner. They loved something new.

It was a wonderfully idea as the family enjoyed it very much as it was covered with lot of cheese. It is actually a very simple dish to cook and save time. This dish can be prepared half a day earlier and then cook later in a day. Well, this is what I did. Also it is a semi-homemade dish. You will understand when you read further more. Give it a try.

 

 

Ingredients:

1½ pound organic ground/minced chicken

9 pieces non-boiled lasagna noodle, divided

3 cups tomato-base pasta sauce of your choices, it could be with mushroom or garden or roasted garlic or basil

1½ cup ricotta cheese

¾ cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese

1½ shredded mozzarella cheeses

5 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped

1 tablespoon extra virgin oil

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 3 quarts baking casserole/square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Mix shredded mozzarella cheese and ricotta cheese together in a mixing bowl.

Heat a sauté skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat, add the chopped garlic and grounded chicken and sauté until ground/minced chicken turned opaque, drain off excess liquid. Add the cooked ground/minced chicken into the tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese and mix together in another mixing bowl.

Now, spread one cup of chicken mixture on the bottom of a prepared dish. Top with 3 non-boiled lasagna noodles. Then gently spread half of the cheese mixture over the lasagna noodles. Top with 3 more lasagna noodles, spread one layer of cheese mixture and then the chicken mixture. Finish it up with remaining lasagna noodle with the cheese mixture.

Cover the casserole/dish with a aluminum foil and transfer to the preheated oven and for 50-60 minutes or until bubbly and hot. Remove and let it set for another 25-20 minutes before serving.
