Lightened up Spinach Lasagna


Who doesn’t love lasagna? It sure is delicious, but may not be the healthiest item on the menu. Solution? Make it at home!

The great thing about making lasagna at home (other than how positively easy it is) is that you can freeze individual portions for a quick meal, and it’s great for inexpensive entertaining. Throw together a quick salad, open a bottle of wine, and you’re good to go.

I lightened up a recipe for spinach lasagna by using part skim mozzarella and low fat ricotta. All you have to do is sauté a bag of spinach with olive oil, mix it up with a tub of ricotta and an egg, and layer the spinach mixture with marinara, mozzarella, and no-boil lasagna noodles. Bake at 375 covered with aluminum for half an hour, then uncover and bake for 15 extra minutes.  Buon appetito!
