Chicken Marsala Lasagna

I  decided on Chicken Marsala Lasagna which uses up a pouch of marsala cooking sauce that I had. Along with some fresh mushrooms, cheese and noodles.

The sauce is made by both Prego and Campbell’s. Although slightly different sizes, use whichever one your market stocks.

Since the recipe does use a bit more premade ingredients, it is perfect for weeknights provided you still have the hour to bake. But at least that part of the cooking is hands off. Along with a dinner salad it can be a pretty easy stress-free meal.

  1. I make lasagna roll ups sometimes when there is leftover chicken marsala but have never made a lasagna casserole with the Chicken Marsala profile. Great idea Sue.

  2. I never seem to go down the ready-made sauce aisle in my local grocery store. Clearly I am missing out! Your lasagna looks full of flavor and wonderful, Sue!

    • I actually bought it to do a copycat recipe. Then I decided to just use it up since I hadn’t got to it yet. And I am clearing out the pantry. It made fast work of a lasagna!
      You can easily make your own sauce without entering the jungle in mid-market.
