Chicken Asparagus Lasagna

Layers of Flavor

Chicken Asparagus Lasagna is different. Lasagna doesn’t always have to be made in the traditional way and this lasagna is far from it. There is great flavor when you combine chicken and asparagus with a rich well seasoned cream sauce. The fresher the asparagus the sweeter the taste. The best thing about this recipe is you can substitute the asparagus with broccoli or spinach.


Instead of using dried lasagna you can make fresh crepes and layer or roll them filled with the chicken and asparagus mixture. Chicken Asparagus Lasagna can be made a day ahead of time to give all the flavors a chance to mingle overnight.
