  • Place a large sauté pan on medium heat. Add olive oil, ground chicken, salt, pepper, chili flakes and sauté until golden brown. Then stir in butter chicken sauce and remove from heat. 
  • Pre-heat oven to 375°F. 
  • In a 9 x 13 baking dish, spread a thin layer of marinara sauce then cover with a layer of fresh pasta. 
  • Add an even layer of butter chicken sauce, top with cheese and cover with another layer of fresh pasta. 
  • Add ricotta, basil leaves and another layer of lasagna sheets. 
  • Repeat step 4.
  • Add marinara sauce, remaining mozzarella cheese and top with parmesan. 
  • Cover lasagna with one sheet of parchment paper and then with foil. Bake in the center of the oven for 45 minutes. 
  • Remove lasagna from the oven, turn on broiler, remove foil and parchment, and broil top of lasagna until golden brown.
  • Allow lasagna to cool for 15-20 minutes prior to serving.
