An easy lasagna; you don't even have to turn on your oven! Enjoy with a side salad and seasonal fruit. 

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces lasagna noodles (or 4 cups of any other type of pasta, uncooked)
  • 1 ricotta cheese, part-skim 15 ounces (or cottage cheese)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce, low-sodium (24 ounces)
  • 1 package frozen spinach, thawed & squeezed dry (10 ounces, or chopped broccoli)
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, part-skim shredded

Directions

1. Cook the noodles as directed on the package. Drain and set aside.

2. In a small bowl, mix the ricotta cheese (or cottage cheese), 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning.

3. Spray a large skillet well with cooking spray. Do NOT place skillet on heat until all ingredients are in skillet. 

4. Spread half of the jar of sauce in skillet. Top with half the cooked noodles (4 lasagna noodles).

5. Spread half of the cheese mixture over the noodles. Top with half the spinach or broccoli.

10. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours. Eat within 3 to 5 days. 

Notes

Thaw spinach in the refrigerator overnight or in the microwave on low power. Once thawed, wrap the spinach in a clean towel, and twist to wring out the water.
