SPINACH PROSCIUTTO LASAGNE

I am a believer that lasagna does not only consist of meat+cheese+noodles. When I saw this recipes and decide to try my hand at it. The saltiness of the thinly sliced cured Prosciutto,added a delicate texture and subtle flavor and I didn't miss all that meat and red gravy (Spaghetti Sauce). Yes this has spaghetti sauce (very little) but not over powering your other ingredients.
In most baked pasta dishes,you can do no wrong adding leafy green spinach and creamy ricotta cheese.
