Chicken and Ham Lasagna Recipe

Chicken and Ham Lasagna Recipe

This creamy version of lasagna goes over great at community get-togethers. My husband doesn't like broccoli, so I often substitute zucchini and yellow squash from our garden. I precook the squash before adding it to the mushroom mixture. -Pamela Grady, Inman, South Carolina
