Nutrition Profile:


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 3 ½ cups whole milk

  • 1 cup unsalted chicken broth

  • ½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3 (8 ounce) packages sliced cremini mushrooms

  • 1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 (9 ounce) package no-boil lasagna noodles

  • 2 (10 ounce) packages chopped frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

  • 4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour and whisk until combined. Gradually whisk in milk and broth; cook, whisking often, until the mixture thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Add Parmesan and salt; whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, Italian seasoning and pepper; cook, stirring often, until all liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms are golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. To assemble lasagna, spread 3/4 cup cheese sauce on bottom of the prepared baking dish. Layer on 3 noodles, evenly spacing the noodles crosswise in the dish. (The noodles will not cover the bottom of the dish but will expand while baking.) Spread half the spinach on top of the noodles. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup mozzarella and top with 3/4 cup cheese sauce. Layer on 3 noodles, half each of the mushrooms and chicken, 3/4 cup mozzarella and 3/4 cup cheese sauce. Repeat the layers once, starting with noodles and ending with mushrooms and chicken. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup mozzarella. Add the remaining 3 lasagna noodles; spread the remaining cheese sauce over the noodles and sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella.

  4. Lightly coat a piece of foil with cooking spray; cover the dish, coated-side down. Bake for 30 minutes; uncover and bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 15 minutes more. Let the lasagna stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
