Dianne's Review | Rating

Loved this dish, will definitely be using this recipe again, so easy.

Sonia's Review | Rating

I tried this last week and as my son is a very fussy eater I was amazed that he firstly ate it and also raved about it. It is nice to have something a little different than the normal lasagne.

frida's Review | Rating

Tasty indeed. Great mix of chicken and vegetables

Sue's Review | Rating

A great variation with the kumara and spinach included in the lasagna (nothing like hiding veges from the kids). The basil pesto lifts it as well.

chris's Review | Rating

I wasn't too sure of a chicken lasagne as I have only ever used beef mince in mine. I was pleasantly surprised as this was creamy and delicious.

Vicki's Review | Rating

A great recipe and ticks all the right boxes, a good quantity of vegetables and lovely easy sauces. The whole family loved this and although I think that the chicken thighs made the dish moister than the breast meat, if I had only breast meat available I am sure this would work as well. This would also be a good recipe to use up leftover turkey after the big Christmas meal.

Karen's Review | Rating

Always good when you don't have to cook it yourself but this one is good anyway

Jan's Review | Rating

Not keen on spinach in the lasagne, it doesn't cut well and you end up with a big mouthful.

Renuka Swaroop's Review | Rating

This speedy meal solution is a twist on the classic lasagne dish. Heinz's simple ''Seriously Good Four Cheeses Creamy Lasagne Bake'' is great.Easy, tasty, filling family meal!

Winter and relatives coming to dinner - what to cook?? Picked up the recipe for Seriously Tasty Chicken Lasagne, a quick shop for ingredients, put it all together, and sat down to chat while it cooked in the oven. Paired it with a baby spinach and sliced orange salad. All the guests asked for the recipe!!! How good is that???

Luanne's Review | Rating

Delicious :) so yummy, quick and easy to make so more time to spend on family.

Gay's Review | Rating

This would be my favourite go to recipe at the moment for the fact of all the fresh veges included, the chicken which all my family like, and and creamy sauce that ties it all together

Lynne's Review | Rating

We all really really love this.. I have made it this week and got rave reviws from the family. They had the Beef lasagne a few days earlier and were quite surprised when I said it was their favourite meal but with chicken instead of beef. That didn't matter one whit to them as lasagnes can be eaten every day of the week in this household. However this is so easy and fast to make you could make it every week with no problems

Bobbie's Review | Rating

It was tasty. Never made it with chicken before. I used a good quality chicken mince and omitted the basil pesto as I didn't have any, and used a sprinkle of italian seasoning instead. I also had no parmesan and used tasty cheese instead. I made it to take to a pot luck dinner, and it was a hit.

Maree's Review | Rating

Thought this chicken lasagne was delicious. However, had a problem with the pasta (It was instant pasta) It didnt cook properly on the bottom and was a bit hard so had to cook for another 20 mins longer than recipe stated. We having the rest for tea tonight. I would definately buy this for a quick easy meal but would put a layer of sauce on bottom then pasta. Otherwise we all enjoyed it

Dale's Review | Rating

Yummo!!!!!!! lasagne, the family really enjoyed it, very easy to put together and the best part my 16 yr old who won't eat kumara didn't even know it was in there!! will definitely be making this again.

I was really pleased to get my pack in the post this week. I cooked it tonight. I really enjoyed it. The pesto gives it an extra kick. The recipe was easy to follow.

Maureen's Review | Rating

Thanks for the products to 'test' this recipe, I decided to try the chicken version, once I added the Kumera the mix became quite dry so I had to add a tin of tomatoes or the lasagne would not have moisture to help it cook, it was different and not sure if I would make again will stick to the traditional mince next time.

Janet's Review | Rating

A great recipe for lasagne which is a bit different and includes some healthy ingredients

Jenny's Review | Rating

Paula's Review | Rating

Easy to make with minimal ingredients. Tasty enough, but I would probably change a couple of things. The kumara made it a little sweet for me so would maybe use a mix of vege, but the others loved it. Will try again.
