Spinach Lasagna

This is a recipe for an easy spinach lasagna. It isn't purely vegetarian... Bill would be asking 'Where's the Beef?' I like using fresh spinach and a whole wheat pasta. A little left over spaghetti sauce makes it really easy.

Spinach Lasagna
3 cups spaghetti sauce
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
2 cups shredded mozzarella
2 cups ricotta cheese
1/4 cup parmesean
1 egg
1/2 box lasagna noodles
In a large pot of boiling water cook noodles until tender. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with a non stick spray. Combine ricotta and parmesean cheeses with an egg. Begin with a layer of noodles, layer sauce, spread ricotta, layer spinach, sprinkle with mozzarella. Repeat layers of noodles, sauce, cheeses, and spinach.
Cover with tented aluminum foil. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Allow to sit 15 minutes before slicing.
Sometimes I do this in a 9x13 dish, and sometimes I use 2 smaller pans. One to bake and one to freeze for later.
Y'all enjoy!

You made this dish look simply delicious! As a young cook, I used to think lasagne was so complicated to make - but now it's so much fun! Actually it's one of my favorite dishes next to eggplant parmesian.

By the way, thanks for commenting on my blog, hope you'll stop by again.
