Sauce Preparation:

  1. This makes about 7 cups of sauce, so you'll need a large saucepan
  2. Heat oil on low (too hot will burn the herbs) and cook herbs a few minutes, to unleash the flavor
  3. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, water (rinse out cans with it), and simmer one half hour uncovered. Stir occasionally

Filling Ingredients:

  • 12 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 1 10 oz pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed, juicy
  • OR equal quantity steamed fresh chopped spinach
  • 2 cups part skim ricotta or cottage cheese

Lasagna Assembly:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Assemble layers in the following order, spreading evenly:
  3. 2 cups sauce
  4. 4 noodles
  5. Half the spinach, cottage or ricotta cheese, and mozzarella
  6. 1/4 cup Parmesan
  7. Repeat for the second layer
  8. Press down gently on the noodles to level the layers
  9. Add the last four noodles and level again
  10. Add the rest of the sauce, and sprinkle 1/2 cup Parmesan evenly over the top
  11. Bake covered for 45 - 60 minutes
  12. If using aluminum foil, tent so it doesn't touch the sauce, so not to eat aluminum. Wash and recycle the foil
  13. After removing from oven, let the lasagna set for 20 minutes before serving

Recipe Tips:

For vegan lasagna, substitute 1 lb firm crumbled tofu for the ricotta, and veggie cheese for the dairy. Originally the recipe called for 1/4 cup olive oil, which seemed excessive. We reduced it to 2 Tbsp.

Use a 9 x 12 or 10 x 14 glass or stainless steel pan, allow 30 minutes to simmer the sauce, 20 minutes assembly, and 45 - 60 minutes to bake.
