  • When I want to eat chicken and I want something different, I brought an Italian flair to my kitchen. A phenomenal combination of pasta and minced chicken, peppers, and zucchini will delight you. I believe that you will continue to use this recipe and that you will enjoy it. Be sure to try it, it's a really fantastic dish!

Ingredients: baking tray 35×40 cm, medium, total time: 75 min., cooking time total: 60 min. Preparation: 10-15 min.

Dough :

  • 500 g lasagna dough or fresh lasagna without cooking

Other ingredients:

  • 1 kg of chicken breast, minced

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 2 red medium peppers, cut into cubes /or (one yellow, one red)

  • 3 tomatoes, mixed/blended

  • 4 Tablespoons oil / 50 ml

  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste / 30 grams

  • 2 small zucchini, grated /or 1 big zucchini

  • 1 Tablespoon Vegeta / 8 grams / Dry spice

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup boiling water 150-200 ml

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon thyme

For the béchamel sauce

  • 3 Tablespoons butter / 30 grams

  • 4 Tablespoons flour / 80 grams

  • 4 cups milk / 800 ml

  • pinch of salt

  • a pinch of pepper

  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

For Sprinkle:

  • 200 g of Parmesan or other melted cheese as desired

  1. Prepare all the ingredients above.

  2. Grate the zucchini.

  3. Finely chop the onion, put it in a plastic container.

  4. Cut peppers, into cubes, and put them in a deeper bowl.

  5. Cut the tomatoes into quarters and put in a blender and blend. When done, mixed tomatoes set aside.

  6. Take chicken breasts and grind them in a super chopper, if you don't have one, ask the butcher to do it for you.

  7. Pour 4 Tablespoons of oil into a large pan (wok) and wait for it to heat over a moderate heat.

  8. Put the onion to fry until it gets a glassy yellowish look.

  9. Add the minced chicken and stir, simmer until the chicken gets colored.

  10. Then add chopped peppers, zucchini. Fry, stirring occasionally, for about 5–7 minutes.

  11. When the water evaporates from the meat, add the mixed tomatoes, thyme, salt, Vegeta / dry spice, pepper, tomato concentrate, pour a little hot water (150 ml).

  12. Stir well, cover the pan and simmer for about 30 minutes over a moderate heat, stirring occasionally.

  13. The chicken and vegetable sauce must be a little thick.


  1. Cook the lasagna in salted boiling water, 5 minutes is enough, because it is definitely baked in the oven. I don’t like it when my dough is too soft. Set them aside, be careful not to stick them, if this happens with the help of cold water, separate them. If you are served with fresh lasagna dough, they are not cooked, so you will save time like me.

Meanwhile, make the béchamel sauce:

  1. Pour the butter into a deeper pan and wait for it to melt a bit, then add the flour and mix quickly and make sure there are no lumps. When the flour takes on a yellowish-brown color, add milk and mix with a whisk. Stir over medium heat. When the béchamel becomes thicker, add a little salt, nutmeg, pepper, and oregano to taste, mix well and remove from the heat.


  1. When the béchamel sauce and chicken with vegetables are done, take a deeper baking tray in the oven measuring 35×40 cm. Sprinkle a little sauce and vegetables on the bottom. Then arrange the lasagna dough, then the chicken with vegetables and béchamel sauce, which you will spread on all sides with a spoon. Arrange until the dough is used up, leave the top layer to pour over the chicken and vegetables and pour over the rest of the béchamel sauce. Fill all the edges and sprinkle with oregano to taste and Parmesan. Place in a preheated oven to bake 180 °C, about 30–35 minutes. Your top coat should brown well. Serve warm immediately. Buon appetito!

    • NOTE: If you don't have peppers, you can replace them with small eggplant or add 3–4 teaspoons of ground sweet pepper, if you don't like zucchini, add 1 more onion or replace with eggplant. If you opted for eggplant, add 1–2 cloves finely chopped garlic. When you are bathing with the béchamel top, you can add a little 1 Tablespoon of tomato sauce and mix it with the béchamel in letter Z.
