Tyler’s dad made this dish a couple of months ago and we loved it, so when I was over there last week I copied down the recipe, then tweaked it a bit. Tyler’s dad made his own cream of mushroom soup instead of using the canned stuff, which was awesome. I think next time we make this we will add more spinach and mushrooms. This is a very rich but very delicious lasagna, the pecans are a great addition!
Chicken Lasagna Florentine (adapted from Southern Living)
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken from the store)
- 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
- 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained (I wilted some fresh spinach instead)
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
