Chicken and Spinach Lasagna

2014-1-13-019-edited-withtextIn my opinion, slow cookers are awesome year round, but they’re especially perfect to use in the winter. Winter nights should be used for cuddling up on the couch with a blanket, not slaving over dinner for hours, so I love being able to throw a bunch of ingredients into my slow cooker, and having dinner magically be done, so I can focus my time on the couch cuddling.

Last year, I shared a classic slow cooker lasagna recipe, and this is a similar version that features spinach, chicken, and Alfredo sauce.  It’s got tons of flavor, and only requires 3 hours to cook, which makes it perfect for a weekend dinner.

Line the slow cooker with a liner (or spray with cooking spray), then break one lasagna noodle in half and cover the bottom of the slow cooker. Spread 1/3 of the spinach mixture on top of the noodle, followed by 1/2 cup chicken, and 1/3 of the Alfredo sauce, 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese. 2014-1-13-007-edited
