Oven set at 375. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Cooked it (Al dente)Spray the baking dish with cooking spray. Combine the ricotta, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, and seasonings. Set aside. Combine sauce, tomatoes and mushrooms. Toss spaghetti with (2) cups of the sauce mixture. Spread (1) cup of this mixture onto the bottom of the dish. Place 1/2 of the spaghetti on top. Spread with the ricotta cheese mixture, Top with remaining spaghetti, top with (1) cup of remaining sauce. Place chicken on top


Top with remaining mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with the freshly chopped parsley. Serve immediately


I made this recipe up to the second layer of spaghetti~ Refrigerated, then cooked the veal. Covered it for about 15 minutes in a 350 oven. uncovered, placed the remaining cheese on top and continues heating for another 10 minutes.


I sauted the spinach with the garlic and added that in between the spaghetti layers and I also sauted the mushrooms before adding to the sauce.


Also reserved some of the sauce as well. We always like extra sauce on the side.


I used just enough spaghetti to barely cover the bottom of the casserole dish and the same thing for the second layer. This is a great recipe and would be a very nice one to make with left over cooked chicken. You could cut it up and tuck it in between the spaghetti layers~ With the Veal a Provolone cheese would be more suitable
