What's Cookin'? - Rosemary Chicken Lasagna
Did you ever bite off more than you can chew?
I haven't! LOL
But I have taken on more than I can handle!
This recipe was one of them!
Don't get me wrong - it's so delicious and well-worth the effort. It was just a real challenge for me at this stage of my stroke recovery (slow, shaky hands) and I had to call in the big guns. That's right. I had to ask for the assistance of my wonderful husband. And help me he did! I never would have been able to pull this one off and serve dinner at a respectable hour if it hadn't been for his help. I got stuck when the recipe called for the bechamel sauce to be whisked - I can't do that motion well yet! AAARGH! But there he was, whisking away.... what a guy!
This dish was so yummy that we decided it was a "keeper"! I would serve it again for company or a special occasion. Or maybe just for us but make it ahead.
YOU can make this! My only suggestion is prepare all of your ingredients ahead. Having everything chopped and set out would make life so much easier!
I found this recipe from a link on Pinterest called "The 20 Recipes That Won Pinterest This Year". I decided right away that I wanted to make this - it had everything that I loved in it: spinach, mushrooms. lots of garlic, rosemary, and lots of cheese!. It also used egg roll wrappers instead of the traditional lasagna noodles - which I had never tried before. The end result? We loved them! They were easier to use, since you didn't have to cook them beforehand, and they tasted the same as the noodles except that they were lighter-tasting. Perfect for this dish!
