Lasagna is always a comforting and popular family dish. However, sometimes it is nice to change it up a bit from the common lasagna dish we are used to. Today I'm sharing my favorite Creamy White Chicken Lasagna dish, made with Borden® Cheese Mozzarella Shreds.

When I sit down to eat a warm dish on a cold winter day with my family, I love hearing stories of their day. A big dinner at the table is one of my favorite times with my family, so it is important to me to have a special dish to serve for dinner.
