Weight Watchers Easy Chicken Lasagna

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground skinless chicken breast
  • ½ pound cremini or white mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 (26-ounce) jar fat-free marinara sauce
  • 1 (15-ounce) container fat-free ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 (8-ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1 (9-ounce) package no-boil lasagna noodles
  • ¼ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and cook until they give off their liquid and it reduces by half, about 4 minutes. Stir in the marinara sauce and bring the mixture to a simmer. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
  3. Combine the ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg whites, and nutmeg in a medium bowl.
  4. Spread the tomato sauce evenly across the bottom of a 9 × 13-inch baking pan. Place 5 of the lasagna noodles over the sauce in one layer. Top with one-third of the chicken mixture, then spread half the cheese mixture over the chicken mixture. Repeat the layering one more time, then top with the remaining 5 noodles and the remaining one- third chicken mixture. Sprinkle the Parmigiano-Reggiano over the top.
  5. Cover and bake the lasagna 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until bubbling and lightly browned on top, about 10 minutes longer. Let stand for about 5 minutes before serving.
