Spinach Lasagna... recipe

I decided to try making a spinach lasagna... and we were pleased
with the result.. in fact I made it twice within a couple weeks.

So I thought I would share it with you today.


Lasagna Noodles (approx. 12)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2-3 cups of fresh spinach
2 cups ricotta (can substitute with cottage cheese if you like)
2/3 cup Romano cheese (grated)
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 jar of pasta sauce

Cook lasagna noodles in lightly salted water. 
(unless you buy the type that doesn't have to be cooked ahead of time)
Using a skillet I cooked the onions, and garlic in the olive oil until tender, 
and then took the mixture out and set that aside to cool.  
Boil the spinach for approx 5 minutes, drain water... then chop. 

In a mixing bowl goes the spinach, onion mixture, romano cheese, ricotta (or cottage cheese), 
salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and the egg.  Mix well.

Lay approx. 4 lasagna noodles in a 9x13 pan, top with a third of your spinach mixture, then a third 
of your jar of pasta sauce, and a third of the cheeses, continue layering 2 more times.

Cover with alum. foil and bake for approx. 1 hour at 350 degree's.

I have made this using Ricotta as well as substituting with Cottage cheese.. 
and both were good.  :0)
