A little different. If you can't get goat cheese curds - and they ARE pretty esoteric - regular cheese curds are fine. Cheese curds are also known as "Squeaky" cheese. If you can't find them, well, diced mild Cheddar will have to do.
- 1 bunch spinach
- 12 whole wheat lasagna noodles
- 1 (19 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 16 ounces goat cheese curds
- 2 cups cooked lentils (or 1 large tin)
- 2 teaspoons basil
- 2 teaspoons oregano
- 1 cup grated old cheddar cheese
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Wash and pick over the spinach, and steam it until just limp.
- Drain it and chop it.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and boil the lasagne noodles until soft enough to work with.
- Rinse them under cool water, and drain well.
- Spread the bottom of a 9"x13" lasagne pan with several spoonfuls of the tomato sauce.
- Lay down 3 lasagne noodles over it, and cover them with more sauce.
- Sprinkle with one third of the cheese curds, one third of the lentils and one third of the chopped spinach.
- Sprinkle over 1/2 teaspoon each of the basil and oregano.
- Continue layering noodles, sauce, cheese, lentils, spinach and seasonings.
- Finish with a layer of noodles, covered in sauce, then sprinkle over the grated cheeses, and the last of the basil and oregano.
- Bake at 350°F for 30 to 45 minutes.
Kids loved this, husband would rather have meat lasagna. I used slices of marble and asiago cheese instead of the curds. I also added onions and carrots and garlic to the tomato sauce and watered it down with wine and water so I could use oven-ready noodles. I thought it was really good, especially since we usually buy organic ground beef and it is expensive, so this is a real money saver.
This was excellent! The lentils replaced meat really well. My kids gobbled it down! I didn't have goat cheese curds, so I used feta instead. I sprinkled a little bit of red pepper flakes to make it interesting. Otherwise, I wouldn't change anything. Defintely going to try with goat cheese curd next time. Thank you for the great recipe!
