My famous Spinach Lasagna!!

This recipe is for Teri and Cathee...just a yummy dish I wanted to share
(Teri you will need to substitute many of the ingredients, but it can be done, I put what I think you can sub in parentheses)

Spinach Lasagna


frozen spinach (thawed)
2 cups ricotta (low fat)(Try vegan ricotta)
noodles (Quinoa)
1 egg (not crucial)
(mushroom) spaghetti sauce or you could saute some squash and zucchini, or portabellas to make it chunky (Teri I am not sure if you can have tomotoes so just saute the veggies)
1 tbl Nutmeg (shh don't let this one get out!Secret ingredient)
2 bags mozzarella shredded cheese (try goat cheese)

Preheat oven to 350

Cook noodles like normal

Mix together ricotta, egg, spinach, nutmeg, 1 bag mozzarella in a bowl

Layer accordingly sauce, noodle, spinach mixture, cheese, sauce, noodles....

cover with tin foil

Cook for about 30-35 minutes, take off foil, cook for another 5 minutes or until bubbling

Let cool for about 15 minutes...unless you like it to be runny!
