Recipe by Adopted Parisian
A delicious alternative to the traditional tomato based lasagnas. I make this for dinner parties or just dinner with the fam. Serve with green salad and hot dinner rolls.

- 1⁄2 cup celery, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced

- 2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
