Chocolate Lasagna

Looking for an easy dessert that looks impressive but takes only minutes? I present the worlds easiest dessert. It's light and airy with lots of chocolate and fresh juicy strawberries. I love dishes that make me look like a kitchen goddess while barely doing anything.

Chocolate Strawberry  Lasagna- Makes 3 huge desserts
1 sheet of puff pastry, cut into 6ths
1 pint of strawberries
½ bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips melted with 3 tablespoons of heavy cream
Heavy cream, whipped
Place cut puffed pastry on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet. Place another cookie sheet on top and bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Remove top cookie sheet, and return to oven allowing pastry to brown on top for about 5 minutes.
Remove pastry from the oven and allow to cool.
Meanwhile, hull and slice strawberries. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar and allow to sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.
Once pastry has cooled, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. You can sweeten if you want, but I didn’t.
Melt chocolate with heavy cream in the microwave for 20 second increments until melted, stirring after each beep.
To Assemble 1 lasagna:
Place flat side of puff pastry on a plate, drizzle with chocolate and top with a layer of whipped cream, top with strawberries and another layer of whipped cream.
Layer another puff pastry flat side down, on top. Top with chocolate, whipped cream, strawberries, and more whipped cream. Drizzle with chocolate. 
What's your favorite dessert? 
Have a wonderful day!
