Chicken Bruschetta Lasagna

This chicken bruschetta lasagna is comfort food at its best. It’s loaded with all the flavors of bruschetta – garlic, basil, and tomatoes – and then topped off with cheese and pasta!

In October, we took our first vacation as a family of 3 to visit some friends in Florida. Camden was 8 months old, and he was starting to eat the same things we were eating for dinner.

Our friends made a fantastic lasagna one night, and Andrew and Camden just couldn’t get enough of it! I decided that I’d have to try to recreate my own version at home, because there are not a lot of meals that really get Andrew talking over and over about how good it was!

January is the perfect lasagna season – although pretty much any time of the year is good for pasta in my book. But lasagna is such hearty comfort food, and cold winters in the Midwest (is it cold where you are??) call for just this kind of thing.

The star of this lasagna is this bruschetta ground chicken by Mighty Spark. It’s seasoned with basil, garlic and sundried tomatoes. We bought this ground chicken at Publix in Florida, and here in Illinois, I can find it at Target. But, if you can’t find it anywhere, just add some fresh (or dried) basil, garlic cloves and chopped sundried tomatoes to a pound of ground chicken.

You can use any pasta sauce you like – I use either homemade or Tomato Basil Garlic (the only one I can find without onion!). And you can add in any veggies your heart desires; you could add mushrooms, green chilis, chunky tomatoes, etc. 



I don’t recommend using oven-ready noodles – I used those the first time and they just didn’t cook well in the oven. I much prefer the ones that need to be boiled first – the texture is just waaay better.

    Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering!! This sounds so good! And relatively easy. My kids will eat pretty much anything if it comes in a casserole dish, so I may have to try this one out next week.

    1. Lisa

      Haha, I love that! I think that’s a great trait for your kids – some kids can’t see what’s in the casserole and just refuse to eat it!

  4. Jessie

    Tomato basil garlic is my favorite too! Anything garlic really! This looks really good and seems pretty simple. We will have to try it.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. It looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it!

    Oh how I miss shopping at Publix. I never knew I would miss a grocery store until I moved out of Florida! This looks like something my entire family would enjoy, too. And I’ve tried the “oven-ready” lasagna noodles before too and didn’t like them. It’s much better to just deal with the extra step of boiling the noodles.

  11. marjiemare

    This looks so good and makes me hungry. I am saving this to make it Sunday.

  12. Becca Wilson

    This looks like something that my family would love. We make lasagna all the time but never anything like this.
