Method:
Preheat oven to 350oF.
To prepare the red sauce, dice the chicken thighs.
Over medium heat, melt the butter, then add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Next, add the garlic, oregano and basil and stir, breaking up the chicken further. Add salt and pepper to taste and combine to further season the meat. Then add the marinara sauce, water and tomato paste. Stir once more then close the pot/pan and turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20-30 minutes. One cooked, turn off the heat and add more water, then stir.

To prepare the white sauce, to a bowl add the spinach, ricotta and cream cheese, eggs, and season with pepper. Then mix together until fully combined, first by hand to avoid spraying, then you can use a hand mixer. Store in the fridge until ready to assemble.

Lightly fry the bacon. If you’re using ham there will be no preparation required. To prepare pre-made lasagna noodles immerse in boiling water for a few minutes to ensure they are soft when the dish is complete.

To assemble:
In an ovenproof rectangle dish, layer the dish as below:

Layers:
1. Thin layer of tomato sauce
2. Bacon
3. Tomato Sauce
4. White Sauce
5. Cheddar
6. Tomato sauce
7. Bacon
8. White sauce
9. Tomato Sauce
10. Cheddar Cheese
11. Sprinkle of Oregano

Bake for 20 minutes or until top begins to brown.
Allow to cool, then cut into 6 even servings, then add one serving each to a meal container.
Can be stored in the fridge and is an excellent freezer meal.
