Chicken Curry Lasagna

My family loves Indian food, and I thought the creamy tomato-based sauce in our favorite curry would be tasty as part of a lasagna. This is a yummy and exciting comfort food for our family! —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah

    This is absolutely amazing tasting! I doubled the curry powder, added a pinch of cayenne pepper. Because I used no cook lasagna noodles I added 1 cup of chicken broth and baked it covered for 45 minutes and uncovered for 10 more minutes. I only used 3 noodles per layer. I can't wait to make it again.

    This was pretty good, and I will definitely make it again. But, it's fairly mild. I'd like to punch up the spiciness next time: more curry powder, some red chili powder, more garlic. Otherwise, super yummy, and comforting, and better on day two.

    Tough way to find out my nut allergic kid included coconut! Until that time, we were enjoying this dish!

    I was excited to try this but worried it would be weird, but it was so good! We really enjoyed this recipe. Great change of pace from regular lasagna.

    Very unique and tasty. We love curry so it was a special treat. As with all lasagna, it was even better on day 2. Always fun to try something different
