Happy National Lasagna Day (in a few days- July 29th this year)! Did you know it was such a thing? Me neither but there are food holidays for nearly everything so why not celebrate lasagna day! Lasagna is delicious and something that I have been making on my own since I learned how to cook. My parents made huge batches of lasagna growing up and froze it and I always helped so I learned how to make lasagna from them!

They would make about 10 lasagnas at a time with a homemade veggie loaded meat sauce that is super delicious. They have also made white lasagna which is amazing too and completely different. I have been making my lasagna with tons of veggies for years (try my Slow Cooker Veggie Loaded Lasagna) and often make mine with zucchini strips, sometimes instead of noodles and sometimes along with the noodles. Sometimes I use regular lasagna noodles, sometimes whole-wheat and sometimes no-bake- it just depends on what I can find.

I love anything buffalo lately and can't seem to go a day without eating some Frank's hot sauce so I decided to make Buffalo Chicken Lasagna. In true Amanda fashion, I added lots of veggies for extra nutrients and paired it with a veggie loaded salad. It turned out super delicious and I would definitely make it again! I added carrots and celery for flavor and fiber. I use shredded chicken for this recipe but if you like, you can also use ground chicken.

This recipe is ooey gooey and super filling! It is so creamy and delicious and is great for year round. If you're a big fan of blue cheese, feel free to throw some in this lasagna as well.

This recipe uses the amazing Lasagna Trio Pan from Chicago Metallic which has three different sides so if you want, you can make each part differently. For example, my sister does not eat beef so if I was making a lasagna with meat sauce, I would make one of the compartments vegetarian for her. That way, you don't have to make it in a completely separate pan but each person gets what they want. My kids don't love spicy food at this point so I made one section with a lot less hot sauce for them to enjoy!

The channels fit standard size lasagna noodles, no tearing noodles necessary. It is dishwasher safe but hand washing is recommended to extend the life of the pan. One of the best features of this pan is that it is silicone based with a non-stick coating for ease of baking and cleanup. I hate scrubbing and scrubbing a pan like anyone else and this feature is amazing.
