Directions:
In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cottage cheese, spinach, egg, oregano and black pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Prepare lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain. Rinse with cold water and drain again. Set aside.

While noodles are boiling, remove skin from chicken and chop meat into bite-size pieces. You should end up with about 3-1/2cups chicken. Set aside.

Spray a 9-in. x 13-in. baking pan with cooking spray. To assemble lasagna, spoon 1 cup sauce over bottom of pan. Arrange 4 lasagna noodles, 3 lengthwise and 1 crosswise, over sauce. Top noodles with another 1 cup sauce , followed by 1/3 chicken, 1/3 feta, 1/3 mozzarella and 1/3 olives. Arrange 4 more noodles over top, followed by 1 cup sauce, 1/3 chicken, all of the ricotta/spinach mixture, 1/3 feta, 1/3 mozzarella and 1/3 olives. Repeat layering with remaining noodles, sauce, chicken, feta, mozzarella and olives. Sprinkle parsley over the top.

Cover loosely with foil and bake at 375 F for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 5 more minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Personal Notes:
Using a store-bought, fully cooked rotisserie chicken and jarred pasta sauce helps speed up what's traditionally a time-consuming, labor-intensive recipe.
