  • 1 teaspoon  olive oil
  • 1 pound  ground white-meat chicken
  • 1 teaspoon  crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon  dried basil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 15 ounce containers part-skim ricotta
  • 1/2 cup  shredded Parmesan
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 1/2 cups  prepared marinara sauce
  • 12 cooked lasagna noodles
  • 1 bag baby arugula, steamed and drained


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the ground chicken with the red pepper flakes and salt and black pepper to taste. Add chicken and the garlic to the skillet; cook 5 minutes or until chicken is browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

2. Combine the basil, eggs, ricotta and Parmesan in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

3. Mist a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1/2 cup of the marinara sauce over the bottom of the dish. Arrange 4 cooked noodles over sauce and top with half of the ricotta mixture, half of the chicken mixture and half of the arugula; top with 1 cup marinara. Repeat layers, ending with noodles and remaining marinara.

4. Cover and bake 45 minutes. Let lasagna stand 10 minutes.

I've made this recipe twice now and loved it! Each time I tweaked the recipe a bit ultimately doubling (or more) the garlic and basil, also adding a bit more parmesan, using low fat ricotta, and adding mushrooms and onions. Delicious and healthy : )

I absolutely loved this recipe and so did my husband. I added a few extra seasonings to the mix and substituted spinach for arugula, it was delicious!

excellent...however I think chicken sausage makes it even tastier...and you could use spinach instead of arugala and add mushrooms.
