INGREDIENTS

kosher salt
3/4 lb. lasagna noodles
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. chicken breast, diced
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 tbsp. cajun seasoning (without salt)
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan
2 c. whole milk
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish
16 oz. whole milk ricotta
1 large egg
16 oz. grated mozzarella

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven 375°.

2. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook lasagna noodles until very al dente. Drain.

3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Cook onion and bell peppers until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Add chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook until golden and no longer pink, 8 minutes. Transfer mixture to a plate.

4. Make sauce: To skillet over medium heat, add butter. Once melted, sprinkle with Cajun seasoning and flour and cook 1 minute. Whisk in milk and let simmer until thick and creamy, about 3 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in Parmesan and parsley.

5. Assemble lasagna: In a small bowl, stir together ricotta and egg and season with more salt and pepper. In a large baking dish, spread a thin layer of sauce. Add a layer of lasagna noodles, top with a third of the ricotta mixture, a third of the chicken-vegetable mixture, another layer of sauce, and a third of the mozzarella. Repeat until all ingredients are used, ending with mozzarella.

6. Bake until bubbly and golden, 35 minutes.

7. Garnish with remaining parsley and serve.
