Traditional Italian Spinach Lasagna

Traditional Italian Spinach Lasagna created by Sweetiebarbara

This is a dish I make only once a year. We invite friends to dinner. If there are any leftovers, I freeze them in single serving size bags and put those into a large freezer bag. This is labor intensive, and an all day affair for me. I like that the crosswise sections make me think of the Italian flag.

    I really enjoyed this recipe, however I feel that it tasted alittle bit better when I put in one and a half ponds of sausage and one and a half ponds of hamburger.
