Hello No-Pasta Chicken Lasagna! – No pasta? No problem.

Hello No-Pasta Chicken Lasagna! – No pasta? No problem.

The clever thing about this recipe is that it is essentially just chicken, vegetables and nuts!

It does take a bit of preparation.  For a start, you need to soak some cashew nuts overnight.  If time is not on your side, you could try just substituting the cashews for extra cottage cheese.

Once you have prepped your separate layers, it is just a matter of layering the casserole dish and throwing it in the oven.

The recipe  still tasted yummy the next day for lunch.
