White Lasagna



So I was on a mission. A mission to make "white lasagna". A white lasagna that would have chicken, and spinach, and white cheesy sauce. But alas!!! No such recipe could this little girl find in all her books and all her websites! So, I set out to make the lasagna in my head anyways.... with our without the stinkin recipe!

I started by poaching a couple of chicken breasts til they were tender and could be shredded (slow cooker, several hours). I cooked up my lasagna noodles and set them aside. I combined a couple cups of ricotta, 4 eggs, parsley, salt, pepper, and some grated Romano. Then I made a bechamel sauce... (2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons flour, 1 1/4 cups milk, heated).. added a VERY heaping handful of more grated Romano and stirred til melty. Let Dave lick the spoon and pan.

Then the fun part.. layering....

Noodles, spinach, chicken, bechamel, noodles, ricotta, noodles, spinach, chicken, bechamel, noodles, mozzarella.

I then baked this at 350 until the mozzarella was melty and golden in spots.

For have absolutely no recipe or guidelines whatsoever.. I thought this turned out pretty dang good! =)

Now that is some good looking grub! Definitely beats the boxed Lasagna I made the other day, although that wasn't too bad...

Rock on, Lea! I surely would have screwed up recipeless white lasagna. (Actually somewhere I HAVE a recipe for white lasagna. Made it once and basically didn't have to eat again for 3 days ;)

Hey this sounds great! I'm staying away from tomato sauce these days but miss that baked-cheesy kinda meal.

Cute idea. It's nice to play and tweak classic recipes into something new.

My favorite pizza of all time is a white pizza... so this sounds INCREDIBLE to me! I think I'm going to have to try this sometime... although, garlic fiend that I am, I'll have to work some roasted cloves in there as well! hee hee

Looks great Lea! You rock!
