2 pounds asparagus spears, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning salt
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) ready-to-serve chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons chopped fresh marjoram leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1/2 cup roasted red bell pepper (from 7-ounce jar), drained and chopped
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)

1. Heat oven to 350°. Grease rectangular baking dish, 13 x 9 x 2 inches. Cook and drain noodles as directed on package.

2. Heat 5 cups water to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Add asparagus heat to boiling. Boil 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender drain. Place asparagus in bowl. Toss with oil and lemon pepper seasoning salt.

3. Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in broth, milk and marjoram. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Stir in chicken, 1/4 cup of the bell peppers and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese. Cook about 2 minutes or until hot.

4. Spread about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture in baking dish. Top with 3 noodles, 1 1/2 cups chicken mixture, half of the asparagus and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers, starting with noodles. Top with remaining 3 noodles.

5. Beat whipping cream in chilled small bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spread over top of lasagna. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup bell peppers and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until hot in center and top is golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting

wing it!
The whipping cream and cheese mixture that top this recipe form a pretty, golden brown, crispy topping. To "whip" up this topping in a flash, make sure that your cream is as cold as possible and chill the beaters and bowl for a free minutes in the freezer.
