Living with meat lovers makes it difficult to convince them that eating something with no meat is okay. But I was determined that it was going to happen. I know there are some vegetarians who watch this page so I wanted to do something for them. So I made this delicious lasagne and guess what? IT Guy didn't even miss the meat. If I hadn't told him it was meatless, he never would have known. This was SO good and so easy. I opted to use the "no boil" lasagna noodles and jarred sauce. And instead of making one 9x13 pan, I made two smaller pans and froze one for later. This is really so, so good. And if you want to add meat, then by all means, that's an option. But doing it this way....for a lighter meal....delicious!
1 10-ounce package frozen spinach ~ thawed and squeezed dry
15 ounces ricotta cheese
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 24-oz jar pasta sauce
9 - 12 oven ready lasagna noodles
1 cup thinly sliced tomatoes
2 zucchini ~ thinly sliced
2 cups mozzarella cheese ~ grated
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
In large bowl, mix ricotta together with the egg. Stir in the spinach, Parmesan, and salt and pepper.
In your baking dish, layer half of marinara, noodles, ricotta mixture, tomatoes, zucchini, and mozzarella.
Repeat with all ingredients. Cover with foil.
Bake 30 minutes.
Remove foil and bake another 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
