  • 2 jars pasta sauce
  • 1 package Lightlife Smart Ground
  • 1 10z frozen spinach (thawed and drained) or equivalent fresh spinach
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat Oven to 350
  2. Make sure spinach is well drained and pressed - as dry as possible
  3. Prepare Lasagna noodles Al Dente and be sure to run cool water over them when done to prevent sticking
  4. In a large saucepan 'brown' the Smart Ground and add 1 1/2 jars of favorite sauce
  5. Place a small amount of sauce in bottom of lasagna pan and spread to coat
  6. Place one layer of lasagna noodles with slight overlapping
  7. Spread one half of sauce mixture
  8. Cover with 1/2 lb of shredded Mozarella
  9. Glob ricotta over the mozarella with large spoon in spots all around
  10. Place second layer of noodles on top and press evenly to mush the lower layer together
  11. Spread the rest of the sauce and spread all the spinach as evenly as possible here - repeat the cheese and noodles again
  12. The last layer of noodles goes on. Spread a thin layer of sauce and sprinkle the parmesan/romano cheese on top and cover.
  13. Bake for 30minutes then remove cover. Sprinkle more parmesan/romano on top and put back in the oven for 10 more minutes.
  14. Allow Lasagna to sit as long as you can and reheat it later. Even a whole day is fantastic. Nobody will know it isn't meat sauce if you don't tell them. Enjoy!
RECIPE BACKSTORY
This recipe fed hundreds of people in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy. We cooked in the yoga ashram so it had to be vegetarian. It needed to be portable, easy to reheat and distribute and nourishing. Dozens of awesome folk showed up to help cook and get the food to the people that were without basic needs. Enjoy!
