Chicken Spinach Lasagna – Low Calorie
I’ve been ignoring the pack of lasagna resting in my kitchen cabinet and staring at me every single day. If I opened that pack, hell will let loose and I’ll be making that full of guilt lasagna I’ve been craving for.
I went to my office and thought about a recipe, which includes lasagna sheets, but go easy on the waist. Since I’m particular about flavor, I had to mix and match many ingredients in my head, and at last I found it!
This version of Spinach and chicken lasagna, is creamy, smells awesome, and tastes so good to be low in calorie.
You can use parboiled lasagna sheets, which I prefer, since parboiled won’t take much of your sauce. But you can use the no boil lasagna sheets too. The ramekins I’ve used were individual sizes, and was 3″ deep.
The best way to check if your baking pan/ramekin’s size is suitable, place two sheets next to each other, or if using individual ramekin just see if the bottom can fit one sheet.
So let’s get this lasagna baking!
