Simple Oven Baked Spinach Lasagna

When I first starting blogging I had posted a Lasagna recipe, that was given to my mom from a good Italian friend she had in the States.  Today, I am posting another Lasagna recipe, but not with meat but with SPINACHHHHH yummm.  

I went to our local supermarket to check out the fresh tomatoes they had but I have to be honest, the tomatoes were not looking to good.  The truth is tomatoes are not in season, so I guess this is why they were looking a bit funky.  So, this time my sauce is store bought, works just as good, and the lasagna tasted just as delicious. 

I am hoping to start my own veggie garden towards the end of next month. Hoorayy!! I have already decided which seeds I would like to plant, and I hoping to be able to purchase my off-ground box. 🙂  I found the perfect spot in the garden so that if we have a snow/thunderstorm/hail or any kind of storm it won’t break it like it did last time.  This off- ground box will be much smaller than the previous, starting small just to be on the safe side.  

I hope you enjoy this recipe, let me know how it comes out if you decide to make it!!!! 🙂

750 grams. Ricotta Cheese

I prefer to use the spinach leaf as is, but you can always chop to make it into a smaller size.

In a deep baking pan add the sauce, store bought or home made.  (If you want a lovely Italian sauce go back to the “The Old Italian Lasagna Recipe” which I had posted a few months ago).  Layer with noodles. 🙂

Then add the ricotta mix.

Top with sauce and mozzarella cheese and repeat the step until all is done.   I usually use aluminum foil to cover the baking dish, so that the cheese won’t burn quickly.  

Bake for 1 hour and medium heat, and until noodles have been thoroughly baked.  Once taken out of the oven let the lasagna cool for about 20 minutes before eating.
