An Absolute Favorite: Spinach Lasagna

Every now and then, I like to include a recipe on my blog.  Why?  Because cooking is a passion, too.  And besides, even authors have to eat.  This is a fun recipe that makes lots of left overs to be enjoyed later or easily frozen.  Hope you enjoy!

Spinach Lasagna

  • 12-15 Lasagna noodles
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minces
  • 4 or 5 handfuls of spinach, chopped
  • 4 cups ricotta cheese
  • 2/3 cup grated Romano cheese
  • salt
  • Italian seasoning
  • black peeper
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups mozzarella, shredded
  • 3 cups tomato sauce
  • Parmesan Cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Bright a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.  Cook until al dente and drain.

Combine onion, garlic, spinach,ricotta, Romano and seasonings in a boil.  Taste and adjust to your liking.  Add egg and stir until well combined.

Begin layering.  Lay noodles to cover the bottom of a 13×9 inch baking dish.  Spread cheese/spinach mixture over noodles.  Top with tomato sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan.  Repeat until all ingredients are gone.

Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.  Allow the lasagna to cool for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.  Enjoy!
