Spinach Mushroom Lasagna

I used whole wheat pasta, home made sauce and light cheese. But you can use sauce of your choice and any cheese, even fat free. Shredding the Mozzarella makes it easier to mix. The spinach used was fresh and I didn't cook it first. The spinach will certainly cooked in the layers, and offers more texture this way. Then I just piled it on and tossed in big slices of fresh mushrooms and baked it. Get creative and add your own veggies! Fantastic~

Ingredients

1 lb pkg
whole wheat lasagna noodles
1 lb pkg
ricotta cheese of your choice
2 lbs pkg
mozzarella cheese of your choice
1/2 c
parmesan cheese (fresh is best)
1 Tbsp
each of basil, oregano, parsley
2
eggs, beaten lightly
3 or 4 c
your favorite tomato sauce
2 lb
fresh spinach, washed well and dry
1 lb
sliced mushrooms, washed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare the pasta as directed. I used the whole box, which makes a pretty big lasagna. Be sure your spinach and mushrooms are washed and air dried. Have sauce ready and reserve about 1 cup or so for the top layer. Combine cheeses, eggs and spices together in a separate bowl.
2
In the bottom of a large square baking dish, either spray with cooking spray or just spread a ladle full of sauce in the dish. Place a row of the cooked lasagna noodles down (about 5-6 across each layer) and add big scoops of cheese mixture spreading as evenly as possible, big handfuls of spinach and mushrooms then more sauce. Continue as before ending with a layer of noodles and final topping of sauce to prevent noodles from getting rubbery.
3
Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes...when it's bubbly. Carefully check the middle to see if it's hot. I usually take a small spoon and push it through and then taste the cheese. When ready, let it set out on the counter for about 10 minutes or so cheese will set up.That's it! Enjoy.
