Because I liked the ingredients in this recipe, I decided to give it a try, but modified it to make it easier to make. This is what I did and it turned out great: Instead of lasagna noodles, I used a lb. of rotini. (I HATE cooking lasagna noodles, don't ask me why). I cooked the pasta while the chicken was boiling. I used 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts and chopped them up when they were done boiling.

If you have one of those little choppers, I highly recommend using it to finely mince your onions and garlic. Then, I added two eggs to the ricotta cheese along with a little bit of parmesan cheese, about 1/4 cup. To assemble this recipe, I layered pasta mixture, ricotta, and cheese sauce in that order ending up with cheese sauce. I then covered the top with mozzarella cheese and sprinkled on a bit of parmesan, popped it into the oven and baked it for 35 minutes. This way is much easier for my kiddos to eat and I feel the ingredients blend together better this way. It all fit very nicely in a 9x13 pan. We will definately be making this again. The taste was awesome! The o
