Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

My oldest daughter and her husband had us over for dinner the other night.  I must say it was delicious!!!  I am very impressed with her culinary skills as she was never much interested in the kitchen while growing up.  I had always wanted to share my love of cooking with my kids and had wanted them to get as excited about cooking as I always was.  It didn't really happen until they were out on their own.  Now occasionally one or the other might call for a family favorite recipe or to share a new recipe with me.  This is one she came upon on  the Food Network site I believe and made for us the other night.  I can't wait to impress friends with this one!

Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

10 lasagna noodles
16 oz. jar alfredo sauce (lite)
1/4 c. milk
1/2 t. oregano
3 c. chopped cooked chicken
1 can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 chopped red pepper
1 finely chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
3 c. mozzarella cheese
4 oz. pkg. lite feta cheese
2 c. baby spinach

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a small bowl, mix alfredo sauce, milk and oregano.  Whisk, set aside.
Coarsely chop chicken and artichokes, pepper, onion, mince garlic and add to med. sized bowl.  Add mozzarella and feta cheese.  Stir this up to mix.  In sprayed 13 x 9 pan, spread 2/3 c. alfredo sauce mixture.  Top with 5 uncooked noodles overlapping to fit them in. Layer 1 c. spinach leaves over noodles, top with 1/2 of chicken mixture, sauce.  Repeat layers ending with remaining sauce.  Pour in 1/2 c. water around sides; try not to disturb layers.  Cover with aluminum foil.  Bake 45 minutes.  Remove foil and bake 10-15 minutes longer.  Let sit 10 minutes, cut and serve.
