Chicken and Spinach Lasagna

Rated 5 out of 5

Layered with chicken, spinach, ricotta and Parmesan, this lasagna is a bit lighter than a traditional version packed with pork and beef, but it’s still rich and cheesy enough to play a starring role at an Italian-themed dinner party. It’s also simple enough to make for a weeknight meal, thanks to a smart shortcut: our organic tomato basil pasta sauce. We like to use homemade fresh pasta sheets for their tender bite and so that we can easily cut them to the size we need, but no-boil noodles will work as well. And although we’ve used a tomato-shaped enameled cast-iron oven here for a pretty presentation, any baking dish with a roughly 3-quart (3-l) capacity will work.
