Chicken Portabello Lasagna Roll-Ups, from Stacy

18 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
2+ cups marinara sauce
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup portobello mushrooms, diced small -SMALL
1 cup cooked spinach - I used 2 bags fresh spinach as spinach decreases in size once cooked.
2 cups diced cooked chicken - 2 CHICKEN BREAST
½ Cup white wine
1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and ground black pepper to taste
3 cups Alfredo sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts

Cook lasagna until noodles are cooked, but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes, drain and rinse. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Spread the marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 glass baking dish; set aside.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and add mushrooms and onion until they soften add wine and simmer about 5 minutes. Add cooked spinach; and cook until hot; remove from heat.

Stir together the chicken, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, oregano, and the cooked spinach mixture in a large bowl; season to taste with salt and black pepper. Spread large spoonful of mixture on each lasagna noodle. Roll the noodle up, and place seam-side down into the baking dish. Repeat for each noodle. Pour Alfredo sauce over the rollups.
Bake covered, in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and pine nuts. Return to the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the pine nuts are toasted, about 10 minutes. Serve hot.

Note from Stacy re: water content: It doesn't get too watery. You cook the onions, spinach and mushrooms together in a pan before mixing them into the cheese concoction. So if it's watery I just let it simmer off. I also use a rotisserie chicken. That's something that I do for any dish that calls for cut up chicken as an ingredient. I only cook chicken when we're having chicken. Otherwise it seems like I'm making two meals.
