I invited a few people to guest blog and my good friend Amanda agreed to share a few of her family's favorite recipes. Her blog is the EcoFriendly Family and her link is on my sidebar. Make sure to check it out because she always has killer giveaways. She's also much better with a camera than I am so her recipes even come with pretty pictures! Enjoy.
This is Amanda:
When I met my husband, he told me that he'd have to make his spinach lasagna for me. I think I wanted to be sick (my mother had only eve given me the awful stuff drenched in vinegar), but smiled and nodded because I was smitten. The day came and he made it. I tried it and was IN LOVE! It's truly fantastic and super easy to make :) For your pleasure, my husband's spinach lasagna :)
• ½ lb lasagna noodles
• 1 lb ricotta
• 1 c Monterey Jack
• parsley, fresh
• ½ c grated parmesan
• 20 oz. frozen spinach, thawed and drained
Cover bottom of lasagna pan with 1/3 of the sauce. Arrange layer of uncooked noodles on bottom. Cover with second 1/3 of the sauce. Combine ricotta, parmesan and spinach and spoon ½ of the mixture over the noodles. Put a second layer of noodles over the cheese mixture, then the rest of the cheese mixture. Cover with the remaining sauce. Top with the Monterey Jack. Cover with foil, domed so that the cheese doesn’t stick to the top.
Bake 45 Minutes at 375 degrees.
Remove foil and bake 20 minutes more.
Allow to set for ½ hour before cutting to serve.
And because it's adorable, her is a photo of our son helping Daddy make the dish.
