  • 1 package of no-boil lasagna noodles
  • 2 pounds marinara or meat sauce (Ragu)
  • 8 ounces spinach
  • 15 ounces ricotta
  • 1 pound grated mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Using the wooden spoon, mix the ricotta with the spinach in the large bowl.

  4. Place a single layer of lasagna noodles over the sauce.
  5. Put a layer of the ricotta mixture on top of the noodles and use your hands to get even layers.
  6. Sprinkle a layer of mozzarella on top.
  7. Pour on another layer of marinara sauce.
  8. Repeat steps 4 through 7.
  9. Put another layer of noodles on top and sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella and parmigiano.
  10. Pour a thin layer of sauce to completely cover the top layer.
  11. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
  12. Remove the foil and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is slightly browned.
  13. Allow the lasagna to cool for about 10 minutes before eating.
  14. Alternative:  Add 2 tablespoons of pesto to the ricotta layer for a rich flavor!

This is a really easy vegetarian lasagna to make, with the added advantage of being adaptable to a lasagna that caters more to a carnivore's palette. I add some cooked ground beef or sausage to the spinach/ricotta mixture. I like this because it's something that kids can easily help with without worrying about pots of boiling water.
