Simple Lasagna

Hey Everyone,

I’m sitting here killing off the last of this delicious lasagna we made Sunday night.

YUM!

YUM!

It was super easy and low-maitenance, and came out to about 440 calories per serving…and they were pretty big servings!

I used a square baking pan, no boil noodles, and jarred sauce! YEP. THAT EASY. Ok, ok, well I used a couple more things.

First, I chopped up half of an onion and 3 cloves of garlic and divided that in half between two pans. In  one pan, I sautéed the onion, garlic, and about 1/4 tsp of red pepper flake and then added a jar of tomato basil marinara.

In another pan, I simply sautéed the onion and garlic, and then added that to a 15 oz carton of ricotta cheese and 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil.

Then, wilt a bag of spinach in the same pan used to sauté the onion, grab a bag of shredded mozzarella cheese and now you’re good to go.

Add some sauce to the bottom of the pan, layer some no-boil noodles, and then cover again with sauce.

Then add a layer of ricotta, and then the spinach. Add a couple tablespoons of the shredded mozzarella.

Continue to layer! I saved the spinach for the bottom and top layers and just did sauce and cheese in between.

Bake at 350 for 45 min to an hour, let sit a few minutes and enjoy!

SO FRICKIN GOOD and SO good for your soul! And yourself. This batch serves six, easily, and reheats nicely. So dig in.
