Ricotta Filling:

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 24 ounces whole milk ricotta
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella, shredded
  • 2 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach,  thawed and added to a fine sieve and pressed very firmly with the back of a large spoon to remove all moisture.
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, julienned
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups half and half
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Layering Ingredients:

  • 12 lasagna noodles, cooked and cooled
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces, skin, and bones removed and discarded
  • 16 ounces mozzarella, shredded


  • Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a deep 9X13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  • Stir together all the ingredients for the ricotta filling in a mixing bowl until well combined; set aside.
  • In a large, high sided skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until soft, about 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle flour over onions and cook, whisking constantly for 1 minute. Remove pan from heat and slowly whisk in half and half and chicken broth until smooth.
  • Return skillet to low heat and stir in Parmesan, salt, and pepper, then simmer gently until cheese is melted.


  • Spread about 1 cup of the sauce on of the prepared baking dish. Layer 4 noodles to cover the bottom of dish, then half the ricotta mixture, half the chicken, 1/3 of the mozzarella, and 1/3 of the sauce. Repeat the layers again. Top with remaining 4 noodles, then the remaining sauce and remaining cheese.
  • Cover lasagna with foil and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 20-30 minutes or until the lasagna is bubbly and the cheese is golden.
