    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semolina flour
  • FILLING:
  • 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/4 cups shredded fontina cheese, divided
  • Grated Parmesan cheese and additional fresh thyme, optional

Directions

  • In a small bowl, whisk the first six ingredients. On a clean work surface or in a large bowl, mix all-purpose and semolina flours; form into a mound. Make a large well in the center. Pour egg mixture into well. Using a fork or fingers, gradually mix flour mixture into egg mixture, forming a soft dough (dough will be soft and slightly sticky).
  • Lightly dust work surface with flour; knead dough gently five times. Divide into six portions; cover and let rest 30 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine the first six filling ingredients; stir in 1-1/2 cups fontina cheese. Grease six individual 12-oz. au gratin dishes; place on baking sheets. Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Fill a Dutch oven three-fourths full with salted water; bring to a boil. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 20x4-in. rectangle, dusting dough with additional flour as needed.
  • Add one noodle to boiling water; cook 1-2 minutes or until al dente. Place one-fifth of the noodle in bottom of a prepared dish; top with a scant 1/4 cup chicken mixture. Fold noodle back to cover filling; repeat three times, topping and folding the noodle each time. Repeat with remaining noodles and filling.
  • Sprinkle lasagnas with remaining fontina cheese. Bake, covered, 30-35 minutes or until heated through. If desired, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and additional thyme.
