Golden-Crusted Chicken-Asparagus Lasagna looked really good to me!

Golden-Crusted Chicken-Asparagus Lasagna

You Need:


9
uncooked lasagna noodles (9 ounces)
2
pounds asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1/2
teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning salt
3
tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4
cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 3/4
cups Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-ounce carton)
1/2
cup milk
2
teaspoons fresh marjoram leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
2
cups diced cooked chicken
1/2
cup roasted red bell peppers, from 7-ounce jar, drained and chopped
3/4
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
1/2
cup whipping (heavy) cream

To Make:

  • 1Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches. Cook and drain noodles as directed on package.
  • 2Heat 5 cups water to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Add asparagus; heat to boiling. Boil 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Place asparagus in bowl. Toss with oil and lemon pepper seasoning salt.
  • 3Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in broth, milk and marjoram. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken, 1/4 cup of the bell peppers and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese. Cook about 2 minutes or until hot.
  • 4Spread about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture in baking dish. Top with 3 noodles, 1 1/2 cups chicken mixture, half of the asparagus and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers, starting with noodles. Top with remaining 3 noodles.
  • 5Beat whipping cream in chilled small bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spread over top of lasagna. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup bell peppers and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until hot in center and top is golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Tips:

Improvise! When fresh asparagus is not in season, substitute 3 packages (10 ounces each) frozen asparagus cuts, thawed. There’s no need to cook the frozen veggies.

The whipping cream and cheese mixture that tops this recipe forms a pretty golden brown and crispy topping. To “whip” up this topping in a flash, make sure that your cream is as cold as possible and chill the beaters and bowl for a few minutes in the freezer.

Serves: 8

Shayne posted an awesome lasagna recipe almost a year ago. It has become a family favorite and I keep getting request to make it. I don't know how to link it to this post, but I did bump it for you. It is called the Mexican Chicken Sour cream lasagna. I do make one small change to it. I add 2 cans of rotel instead of the 1 can of green chiles.

Maybe someone may know how to link it to this post.
