This was delicious, kids loved it. I used a rotisserie chicken, boiled regular lasagna noodles (didn’t have oven ready), used skim ricotta in place of cream cheese and used 3 cups of jarred sauce since the noodles were already cooked. Fantastic recipe, worked out to 10personal points for me for 1/6th of the lasagna. This recipe is a keeper!

Do you have to use the oven ready lasagna noodles or can you cook regular lasagna noodles and use those? I am not a fan of the oven ready lasagna noodles.
