Ingredients

  • Lasagna– 1 box 8 to 10 ounce.
  • Spinach- 2 cups.
  • Olive Oil– 1 tablespoon.
  • Onion- ½ cup chopped.
  • Garlic- 2 cloves minced about 2 teaspoons.
  • Ricotta Cheese- 2 cups.
  • Parmesan Cheese- ½ cup divided with additional as desired for topping. Seasonings as desired. This can include Italian Seasonings Salt, and/or Pepper. Mediterranean Diet Seasoning Blend

Instructions

  • Prepare your lasagna noodles as indicated on the package. Also, prepare your spinach as mentioned above. Make sure that both are drained well.
  • Preheat your oven to 350. Prep a baking dish well for nonstick to make for an easier clean up.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until tender (about three minutes). Allow this to cool when done.
  • Next, in a mixing bowl, blend together the ricotta cheese, egg, ½ cup of the Parmesan cheese and any desired seasonings.
  • Stir in the cooled garlic and onion and then the spinach.
  • To assemble the lasagna, start with a layer of noodles and alternative the layers between the noodles and the cheese and spinach mixture.Once you get the top layer of noodles, you can top that with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
  • Loosely cover your lasagna with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and allow the lasagna to cook for another 20-25 minutes or until the cheese on top begins to brown. Allow the lasagna to set for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that using no boil lasagna noodles is the perfect hack for this lasagna recipe. Also, I mentioned that a small curd cottage cheese can be used with or instead of the ricotta cheese in this recipe.
This recipe also calls for spinach.
If you choose to use fresh spinach you will need to boil it first.
I suggest doing so ahead of time in order to give the spinach enough time to drain properly.
