4 cloves Garlic

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Combine all of the ingredients for ricotta layer and set aside.

3. For the sauce, melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and continue to cook for about 30 seconds. Add the flour and whisk to combine. Add the milk, a little at a time, whisking well as you add it. Add the heavy cream. Bring to a boil, stirring the whole time.Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the mozzarella, spinach, salt, pepper, and basil. Continue cooking until the cheese is melted and the spinach is wilted. Set aside.

4. TO ASSEMBLE: Place a couple ladles of sauce in the bottom of a greased 9x13 inch pan. Top with a layer of noodles followed by 1/3 of the ricotta mixture followed by 1/3 of the chopped chicken, followed by 1/4 of the remaining sauce mixture. Continue layering in the pattern ending with sauce (you should have sauce, noodles, ricotta, chicken, sauce, noodles, ricotta, chicken, sauce). Tip with a final layer or noodles, then remaining sauce. Top with 1 & 1/2 cups mozzarella then scatter the halved cherry tomatoes on top.

5. Place the 9x13 on a baking sheet that is larger in case of overflow. Baked for 45 minutes. If the top browns before the 45 minutes are up, just cover it with a sheet of tin foil for the rest of the time.

6. Allow to cool about 10-20 minutes before serving. Top with fresh basil and balsamic glaze.
