Creamy Spinach Vegetarian Lasagna

I made a wonderful lasagna dish today I wanted to share with you. I found the recipe at http://www.easylasagnarecipes.org/Lasagna-Recipes/vegetable-lasagna-recipe/best-vegetarian-lasagna-recipe.php#.T509NqtYuDo Here it is

Ingredients –

3 ¼ cups Ricotta Cheese
1 ½ cups fresh grated Parmesan cheese
2 boxes Frozen chopped spinach, drained
4 ½ cups chunky vegetable pasta sauce (your choice)
1 box uncooked Lasagna noodles
2 ½ cups grated Gouda or Swiss cheese (slices may be used- I used swiss)
⅛ tsp. Salt
⅛ tsp. pepper

Preparation:

Prepare a 13 x 9 x 2 Lasagna pan by spraying lightly with olive oil.

Set the pan aside until ready to use.

Gently blend the Ricotta and Parmesan cheese together, adding salt and pepper.

Now spread 1 cup of pasta sauce in Lasagna pan.

Place 3 Lasagna noodles on top of the sauce.

Spread 1 ¼ cups of Ricotta mixture on top of noodles in a light layer.

Place about ⅓ of spinach mixture on top of Ricotta mixture in spoonfuls.

Repeat the layers ending with 3 Lasagna noodles and the remaining sauce.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Using Aluminum foil cover the Lasagna and bake for about 30 minutes.

Then remove the foil and sprinkle the grated Gouda or Swiss cheese on top.

(If using slices, lay slices on top of Lasagna to cover).

Bake uncovered for an additional 15 minutes more.

Cheese should be golden brown.

Remove from oven and let stand for about 12-15 minutes before serving.

(Serves 8)
