- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 jar (24 ounces) spaghetti sauce
- 1 carton (15 ounces) ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

- 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

- In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce.

Arrange four noodles over sauce, breaking noodles to fit if necessary; layer with half of the ricotta mixture, 2 cups mozzarella cheese and 1 cup meat mixture.
- Top with four noodles, spinach, Alfredo sauce and 2 cups mozzarella cheese. Continue layering with four noodles, remaining ricotta mixture, 2 cups mozzarella cheese and 1 cup meat mixture. Add any remaining noodles; top with remaining meat mixture and mozzarella cheese.

Sort By :
"This lasagna is absolutely yummy. While remodeling and without a stove, I came across this recipe. I don't care if I never use my stove again. Definitely a keeper, and has been passed on to friend."
"Was really good. But 4 cups of cheese is plenty. Didn't have very many leftovers!"
"Yummy! :-) made it in a pan. Delish. Its a treat...not an everyday meal."
"I used a 6 qt round crock pot, it worked out well. Cooked for 5 hours, might only do 4 1/2 hours next time. Will add more garlic next time and going to mix in some of the italian cheese. My husband had seconds, that says a lot! Delish"
"To freemason and anyone else flipping out at the nutritional values-find another recipe or make substitutions.I weigh 109 lbs soaking wet, great BP, cholesterol, etc. At 75 plus years I eat meals like this in moderation and enjoy every darn bite without quilt. This is a great, easy recipe. However, I cut the amounts the second time I made it because it overflows my 5 qt. crock pot. Incidently, it freezes well!"
