Without my additions I still would have gave it 4 stars due to the cream cheese. I love the creaminess it lends. Anyway, Lasagna's has always been my achilles heel in cooking. I just don't like way they taste when "I" make them. This however, was delicious and very easy to make. My husband loved it. I stuck with the two layer as I don't like my lasagna too thick. 6 Noodles in a 11x7 dish. Plenty. Poached my chicken with onions, celery tops, garlic and another bouillion cube. After chicken was done, I also boiled my noodles in the same water. No sense in wasting it and another layer of flavor it adds. I love the cream cheese filler a lot better than the ricotta. Ricotta can be a bit 'grainy' and Cottage gives off too much liquid. I too, diced my chicken (small chunks) as I envisioned a cleaner cut of lasagna squares than if you shred. I added some fresh cooked spinach (squeezed-DRY), pepper flakes, Kraft Parmesean Cheese, fresh ground black pepper, garlic and a tablespoon of "Salad Supreme Seasoning" (I love that stuff and it's not just for salads). Oh---and 1 egg. I chose Ragu because I like the sweetness it has. This was better than one made the original way but will try next time with mixture of italian sausage & chicken. Now that's got to even more yummier-er. You think?
