Lasagna with Artichoke Pesto

With all the Artichoke Pesto I made this week I was eager to use the sauce in a way that I use regular pesto, so I decided to make a lasagna.

I usually make cream pesto lasagna because I've had a severe intolerance to tomatoes my entire life so I have to be creative with traditionally tomato based dishes. I'll post my cream pesto recipe at another time...but for now this artichoke pesto lasagna came out absolutely deeelish!

I had some shredded chicken breast and grated zucchini (left over from zucchini bread which will also be posted soon:-), that with some baked cauliflower, spinach and jack cheese, this lasagna was very different yet so yummy my hard to please Mom even liked it!
