Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat, add cubed chicken and brown for about 5 minutes.

Season and keep hot.

To make béchamel, melt butter in a big pot over medium heat, add flour and whisk for about 2 minutes.

Add milk and wine, whisking all the while. Bring to a boil, and cook about 8 minutes, stirring constantly.

Stir in lemon peel, salt, pepper and cottage cheese. Remove from heat.

In a 9" x 13" (23 cm x 33 cm) ovenproof dish, spread one fourth of the béchamel, cover with 4 lasagna noodles, part of the browned chicken, asparagus and mozzarella.

Repeat to make 3 layers and sprinkle Parmesan over top.

Bake approximately 15 minutes.

Cool a few minutes at room temperature before serving.
