Cooking Tools
Stock pot
Medium saucepan
Lasagna pan or 6 serving size baking dishes

Preheat oven to 375 Degrees F.  Cook lasagna according to directions. Drain pasta, separate to prevent sticking. In a skillet on medium heat, melt butter and olive oil.  Add in mushrooms, onions and saute until tender. Add in chicken, red pepper, artichokes, garlic, Herb De Provence, salt, pepper and saute for additional few minutes.
To Assemble: Ladle enough Bechamel sauce (recipe below) to coat bottom of baking dish, layer 1/3 of the lasagna noodles, add chicken mixture evenly over the noodles.  Ladle some more Bechamel sauce over the chicken mixture, sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese evenly. Add another layer of cooked noodles and repeat until last layer of noodles, then add enough Bechamel to cover the noodles, top with Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese.  Bake in oven for 30 minutes.  Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Bechamel Sauce
5 tbsp butter
4 tbsp flour
4 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg

In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over low heat until melted. Add the flour and stir until smooth.  Cook until color is slightly golden, about 6 to 7 minutes. Whisk in milk a little at a time, raise temperature to medium heat and continue to whisk until thickened, about additional 10 minutes.  Add in salt and nutmeg and set aside to make Lasagna.
