How to Make Roasted Red Pepper & Spinach Lasagna
- Boil lasagna noodles. Set aside.
- Saute the chopped onion and minced garlic in a small skillet with a pat of butter. Add onion and garlic to the sauce. Simmer all on top of the stove in a saucepan. Add the Italian seasoning and I also add just a pinch of sugar to my sauce to cut some of the acid of the tomatoes.
- Spoon 2 tbsp of pasta sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish. Place 3 to 4 lasagna noodles side by side, touching over the 2 tbsp sauce. Cover noodles with a thin layer of sauce. Sprinkle 1/3 of the spinach on sauce, then 1/3 of the peppers. Top with 1/3 of the ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Repeat layers two more times ending with the cheeses.
- Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Also, make sure to thaw and drain spinach well.
