  4. Stir in 2 cups mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan until well combined. Season with basil, oregano, and black pepper; remove from heat and set aside.

  5. Spread 1/3 of the sauce mixture in the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. Layer with 3 lasagna noodles, ricotta, and chicken. Arrange 3 lasagna noodles over the chicken and layer with 1/3 of the sauce mixture, spinach, remaining 2 cups mozzarella, and 1/2 cup Parmesan. Arrange remaining noodles over cheese and spread remaining sauce evenly over noodles. Sprinkle with parsley and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
