Cheesy Chicken Lasagna

I put this on them menu because I thought it sounded different and interesting. Then I made it and everyone freaked out over it. It really was so good and different but not so different that my little ones wouldn't eat it. My son took the leftover to school the next two days because he loved it so much. This recipe is adapted from Food Lovin Family.

4 cups finely shredded cooked chicken
2 (8oz) containers chive and onion cream cheese
1 package frozen spinach (thawed and drained
1 tsp garlic salt
1 jar pasta sauce (best to use a red sauce with cheese like parmesan red sauce)
4 cups mozzarella cheese
12 lasagna noodles (cooked according to packaging)

Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with baking spray. In a bowl combine the chicken, cream cheese, spinach and garlic salt. Place 1/3 of the sauce in the bottom of the baking dish, top with 4 noodles, 1/3 of the chicken  mixture and 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat two more times ending with the mozzarella layer.  Cover and bake for 40 minutes then uncover and bake for 15 more minutes. Remove and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
