Dig into the rich layers of this hearty lasagna that features plenty of Italian sausage and gooey cheese. No-cook noodles, frozen spinach and jarred spaghetti sauce simplify the prep. But it tastes far from ordinary! —Kathleen Morrow, Hubbard, Ohio

This was amazing. I used broccoli in place of the spinach bc my family doesn't like spinach. It worked great!

I was afraid that it would be too watery but it was perfect! Best and easiest lasagna recipe I've ever made. I've also made this with regular lasagna noodles and it was just fine.
