With Superbowl weekend approaching, I have been getting many requests to share my famous lasagna recipe. Ok – that’s a lie. Not a single person has asked for the recipe and it’s not really famous. But… it is super quick and easy to make and would make a great contribution for a pot luck-type situation like a Super Bowl party, so here it is:
48 oz container of Ricotta (I like to use the part skim)
1-2 boxes of No Boil lasagna noodles (these are SO easy to use! But if you want to make it a bit healthier, you can also use the whole wheat noodles.).
2 jars of tomatoes sauce (I like to use Rao’s vegetable sauce, but any chunky sauce will do)
2 packets of frozen spinach
1 container freshly grated parmesan cheese
How to make it (my record for making this is under 7 minutes):
1. Defrost and drain the spinach (2-3 minutes in the microwave on high usually does the trick).
2. Using a big mixing bowl, mix the spinach in with the ricotta
3. Spread a layer of the tomato sauce on the base of your lasagna pan (this keeps it form sticking) and then place your first layer of noodles in the pan.
4. Spread the spinach and ricotta mixture on the noodles, cover with some of the tomato sauce and then sprinkle with some parmesan cheese.
5. Repeat the noodle, ricotta, sauce, parmesan layers until you fill the pan.
6. Cover with tin foil and bake on 350 for about an hour or until it’s piping hot (I take the tin foil off for the last 5 minutes to make the top extra crispy).
Here’s to moms who are not very good in the kitchen (like me!) finding quick and easy recipes that actually taste good!
