Chicken Lasagna

This chicken lasagna is a tasty and lighter alternative to the traditional Italian Bolognese Lasagna made with the Italian sauce named “ragù” (ground beef and tomato sauce).

This version consists of the so-called “white ragù”, made with shredded chicken breast in a white sauce, based on heavy cream, butter and Parmesan cheese.

Chicken lasagna is perfect for a dinner with friends or the typical Sunday family meetings, but you can also store it in the fridge for a couple of days and bring it to the office in your lunchbox.

For an even lighter flavor, you can use turkey breast instead of chicken and you can also add some fresh parsley and oregano to the sauce, for a more pronounced taste.
