Spinach Lasagna

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by SweetAsHoney

My husbands favorite food. My mother-in-law gave me the recipe when we got married so that my husband wouldn't be without it. You can really put things in any order. Sometimes I put in a layer of the mozzarella in the middle. Sometimes I add sliced mushrooms or soy fake meat. The real secret is the more sauce and cheese, the better.

This is excellent with FRESH spinach! I added some red onion and baby bella mushrooms that I sauteed a few minutes beforehand to get the liquid out. Love it!

Directions

  1. Cover the bottom of a rectangle pan with sauce (just enough to cover.) I use the large deep foil pan. It is best to use a pan deep enough to leave room at the top, so that foil doesn't touch the lasagne and get stuck on the cheese.
  2. Put a layer of lasagna noodles (uncooked)--kind of overlap them. I usually overlap 4 to fit across the pan.
  3. Now put a layer of ricotta cheese. Spread thinly across the noodles.
  4. Pour on sauce.
  5. Then spinach and more sauce.
  6. Repeat: Noodles, ricotta, sauce, spinach, sauce. Noodles, ricotta, sauce, spinach, sauce.
  7. End with noodles.
  8. Pour sauce over.
  9. Then really end with grated mozzarella.
  10. Cover pan tightly with foil, put in oven at 350 degrees and cook about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  11. Serve with a salad and some french bread (whole wheat is best!) and you have a great meal.
