This is basically the best meal ever. When I was at my Aunt's house, I would eat my body weight in this salad. I'm sure she bought and extra bag just for me! This time I bought all the stuff to make a homemade one. Romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, croutons and lite Caesar dressing. It was really good I ended up eating a lot of this too!
Aunt Mary's Spinach Lasagna
1 pound ricotta cheese (I used low-fat)
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. pepper
1-2 cans spaghetti sauce(I used 1.5 cans of the Hunt's by spaghetti sauce because I like it to be pretty saucy)
1/2 package oven ready lasagna noodles (12 oz package)
In large bowl mix ricotta, 1 cup mozzarella, the egg, spinach and seasonings. In greased 13x9 inch baking dish layer 1/2 cup sauce, a layer of noodles and 1/2 of the cheese mixture. Repeat layer one more time using a little more sauce. Top with a few more noodles and sauce. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella. Pour about 1/2 cup water around the edges of the pan and cover tightly with foil. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. After an hour I removed the foil. Let stand for about 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy with salad and garlic bread.
*Thanks Aunt Mary!
