Several years ago at a conference, I was served the most divine white sauce chicken lasagna and have been looking for it's match ever since. I think that this recipe could serve as the base for my dream lasagna. First made just as instructed, my family liked this but thought it was more like a chicken casserole than a lasagna and ended up spooning generous dallops of pesto over our servings to liven the dish up. So, second time around I added 1cup of pesto in with the ricotta mix. It was near perfect with the addition of pesto. My son and I still spooned a bit more over our servings and the man did not, all agreed that the recipe was greatly improved with the abundance of basil, pine nuts and olive oil from the adding the fresh pesto. This dish is deliciously rich as written, we thought it just lacked the flavor to match and think the pesto corrects the balance to near perfection. Those painfully aware of fats could reduce butter in the sauce to counter some of the oil in the pesto. We will make again with the changes to suit our taste and am thankful to have found this great base recipe!
