Good Food Friday = Yummy

I love to try new recipes, so the other night my 8-year-old and I made this one and absolutely LOVED it.  I had already put it all away before I realized my pictures didn't turn out, so this one is courtesy of Pillsbury.

Chicken-Prosciutto Lasagna
Doesn't that look scrumptious.  It is!  There's a lot of chopping involved, which I love, so get yourself a great knife and have some fun!  Here's the recipe for you - also courtesy of Pillsbury (here).

Chicken-Proscuitto Lasagna
12 uncooked lasagna noodles
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1/4 lb. prosciutto, chopped
1 (16-oz.) jar Parmesan and mozzarella cheese pasta sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 medium red and/or yellow bell peppers, chopped
1 (15-oz.) can Italian-style tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
8 oz. (2 cups) shredded fontina cheese
1 oz. (1/4 cup) shredded fresh Parmesan cheese

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Cook noodles as directed on package. Drain.
2. Meanwhile, spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken and onion; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center, stirring occasionally. Stir in prosciutto, pasta sauce and 2 tablespoons of the basil; mix well. Set aside.
3. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add bell peppers; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomato sauce. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in parsley and remaining 2 tablespoons basil.
4. Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture evenly in bottom of sprayed baking dish. Top with 4 cooked noodles, overlapping as necessary. Top with about half of tomato mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the fontina cheese. Layer half of remaining chicken mixture, 4 noodles, remaining tomato mixture and remaining 1 cup fontina cheese. Top with remaining 4 noodles, remaining chicken mixture and Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil.
5. Bake covered at 350°F. for 45 minutes.
6. Uncover baking dish; bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Add 1/2 cup water to tomato mixture. Bake covered at 375°F. for 45 minutes. Continue as directed above.

Enjoy! :)
