Valonda Seward of Hanford, California shares this lively meal that features the full flavors of Southwestern cooking with just a few everyday ingredients. For those rushed for time, leftover or rotisserie chicken work great in this delicious entree.
For a cooking class several years ago, I lightened up a classic lasagna and created this chicken version. It was preferred over the traditional dish in taste tests in my class and by my family and friends as well. —Dena Stapelman, Laurel, Nebraska
This creamy pasta dish gives an old favorite a new twist! Three cheeses and chicken blended with the fresh taste of spinach make it a real crowd-pleaser. Try it served with a green salad and a light dessert.

When my nephews were younger, I would make their favorite meal for their birthdays...this is what they usually requested. The cheese makes it easier for kids to eat their vegetables.—Janet Lorton, Effingham, Illinois
As a girl, I spent summers on my grandparents' farm and helped harvest bushels of fresh vegetables. To this day, I enjoy making recipes like this lasagna, laden with juicy tomatoes and herbs fresh from my own garden.
“A friend served this to us one night and I just had to try it at home," recalls Janelle Rutrough of Callaway, Virginia. "It’s quick, easy and so delicious! I love to serve it to guests with a Caesar salad and warm rolls. Also, it can be frozen and saved for a busy weeknight.”
