Most people eat traditional Christmas Dinner which to me is basically Thanksgiving all over again. For Christmas we like to mix it up (COMPLETELY) last year we had an indoor BBQ Cookout. Anyway, traditionally (for us) we have lasagna or something else Italian... why? I don't know. My suggestion.... try something different! Shake it up! Try this lasagna with the allergy free alternatives (don't tell them) and see if your family notices. Let me know how it goes!
White Cheese Chicken Lasagna
Recipe By:Lisa Humpf
9 lasagna noodles (GF lasagna noodles)
1/2 cup butter (Smart Balace)
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup all-purpose flour (GF all-purpose flour mix)
1 teaspoon salt (kosher salt)
2 cups chicken broth (GF YF)
1 1/2 cups milk (Lactose free or non dairy)
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided (lactose frer or non dairy... I like GOVeggie)
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided (lactose frer or non dairy... I like GOVeggie)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups ricotta cheese (Farmers Cheese)
2 cups cubed, cooked chicken meat
2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese for topping (lactose frer or non dairy... I like GOVeggie)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and rinse with cold water.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the butter until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in the flour and salt, and simmer until bubbly. Mix in the broth and milk, and boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir in 2 cups mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Season with the basil, oregano, and ground black pepper. Remove from heat, and set aside.
Spread 1/3 of the sauce mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer with 1/3 of the noodles, the ricotta, and the chicken. Arrange 1/3 of the noodles over the chicken, and layer with 1/3 of the sauce mixture, spinach, and the remaining 2 cups mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Arrange remaining noodles over cheese, and spread remaining sauce evenly over noodles. Sprinkle with parsley and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
