This healthy version of the classic Italian fare will surprise even those who aren’t wild about vegetables. And it’s perfect for putting leftover chicken breast to good use!


  • 2 cups cheese (shredded Cheddar, Colby, or Monterrey Jack)
  • 1 package cream cheese (or ricotta cheese)
  • 1/3 cup spinach (optional)
  • 1 quart tomato sauce & 1 small can tomato paste (or use spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce)
  • 1/2 box lasagne noodles (I prefer whole wheat)
  • 1/21 lb meat (I used shredded chicken breast, or you can use ground beef or sausage)


  1. Cook meat (e.g. brown hamburger or steam chicken breast)
  2. Bring a pot of water with 1 T oil to boil, add noodles and boil for 8-10 minutes (until noodles are al dente*)
  3. Place one single layer of noodles on bottom of pan
  4. Layer 1/3 sauce along with meat
  5. Add another layer of noodles
  6. Layer 1/3 sauce with cream cheese (or ricotta) cut into small pieces
  7. Add another layer of noodles
  8. Layer 1/3 sauce with 1 cup spinach
  9. Top with shredded cheddar cheese (or choice)
  10. Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes


*al dente describes pasta and (less commonly) vegetables, rice or beans that are cooked to be firm to the bite
