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.

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.”
Take pasta to new heights with this clever creation. A cheesy mixture of chicken and broccoli is rolled into lasagna noodles, making enough for two dinners. It's nice to have a pan of these roll-ups in the freezer for unexpected company. —Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
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.

When I make this tasty chicken lasagna at home, I use a whole bottle of buffalo wing sauce because my family likes the slow cooker dish nice and spicy. Use less if you prefer, and increase the pasta sauce.—Heidi Pepin, Sykesville, Maryland
