This is very easy to prepare and uses “no cook oven ready” noodles. It is so incredibly flavorful you may never make regular lasagna again. Direct quote from my husband “This may be the BEST lasagna I have ever had!”

You can also substitute ground beef for the chicken by browning the beef and adding the same seasonings to it.
