Chicken and Spinach Lasagna ecipe
Best chicken spinach lasagna has all of those, lots of delicious tart sauce, a lot of cheese, lean ground chicken and loads of spinach. This is not a heavy lasagna, you know, the type that gives you a stomach ache, if you actually make this with whole wheat lasagna sheets this would make for one very healthy and hearty dinner.

Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan over high-medium heat, bring 2 gallons of water to a boil.
  2. In the meantime, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, add ¼ cup of oil once the saucepan is hot. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, cook until onion is tender, stirring occasionally, around 5 minutes. Add the chopped bell pepper, stir and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and ground chicken. Mix well so the ingredients get combined, and cook for about 5 minutes. Once the chicken is almost cooked add the spinach and cook until the spinach has shrink in size and is tender, around 5-6 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the heat.
  3. In the meantime, the water must be boiling, add some salt and 2 tablespoons of oil and add the lasagna sheets. Cook based on box instructions, but usually it takes 7-9 minutes for the sheets to cook. Transfer lasagna sheets to a colander, give them a bath in cold water and drain.
  4. Start assembling the lasagna. I had to trim the length of the lasagna sheets to fit my 9 inch pan. I used 5 sheets for the bottom layer, 5 for the middle layer and 6 for the upper layer.
  5. Preheat oven to 400F.
  6. Start by greasing the lasagna pan with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil.
  7. Lay 5 lasagna sheets on the bottom of the pan, top it with half of the chicken mixture, followed by 5 ounces of marinara sauce, and followed by 1½ cups of grated mozzarella cheese. Repeat this for the second layer of lasagna sheets -> chicken mixture -> marinara sauce -> cheese. Top with the final layer of 6 lasagna sheets (I also added on top the pieces from the trimmed sheets), cover with the remaining 5 ounces of marinara sauce and top with the remaining 1 cup of cheese.
  8. You can place lasagna in the fridge for 24 hours, or you can bake it immediately for 30 - 40 minutes.
  9. Let lasagna cool down 15-20 minutes before serving, as this will facilitate cutting it.
  10. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
