Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 8 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 12 standard lasagna noodles
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces baby bella or white button mushrooms
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 24 ounces marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • 15 ounces whole or part-skim ricotta
  • 8 ounces shredded Italian cheese blend
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¾ ounces fresh basil (optional for garnish)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F and cook lasagne noodles according to the directions on the box. Strain your pasta and set it aside to cool (see first note below).
  • Dice your onion, chop your mushrooms, and mince your garlic. Add them to a large saucepan with the spinach, olive oil, salt, and pepper over high heat, stirring occasionally, until all of the liquid evaporates (about 15 minutes).
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of sauce to a 9x13-inch casserole dish and spread it out evenly to form a thin bottom layer of sauce.
  • Place 3 noodles on top in a single layer. Then, spread about 1/2 of your ricotta across the top of the noodles. Next, add roughly 1/2 of your cooked veggies and top with a thin layer of Italian blend shredded cheese.
  • Repeat step 4, using up the ricotta and cooked vegetables.
  • After your second layer of shredded cheese, add a third layer of lasagna noodles, a third layer of sauce, and a final layer of shredded cheese. Top it off with the Parmesan cheese
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until the cheesy top starts to brown. Option to garnish with fresh basil. Enjoy!

Pro Tips

  • I like to spread my noodles out on a baking sheet in a single layer, so they cool quickly and don't stick to one another.
  • Reducing your meat consumption significantly reduces your carbon footprint. Be kind to the planet (as well as your tastebuds!) with more of these delicious meatless pasta meals.
