Beef and Spinach Lasagna Recipe

Using no-cook noodles gives you a jump start on assembling this hearty main dish that Carolyn Schmeling of Brookfield, Wisconsin recommends. It cuts nicely after standing a few minutes, revealing flavorful layers.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 40 min. + standing YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 jars (24 ounces each) spaghetti sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 9 no-cook lasagna noodles


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the spaghetti sauce, garlic, basil and oregano. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, ricotta and 1 cup mozzarella cheese.
  • 2. Spread 1-1/2 cups meat sauce into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with three noodles. Spread 1-1/2 cups sauce to edges of noodles. Top with half of the spinach mixture. Repeat layers. Top with the remaining noodles, sauce and mozzarella cheese.
  • 3. Cover and bake at 375° for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 12 servings.

"Delicious! I didn't have chopped onions or the dried basil. I used an Italian four cheeses blend in lieu of mozzarella. This is one dish the entire family enjoyed!"

"Quite tasty. Had to improvise a bit because I didn't have all the ingredients. Had to use cottage cheese and sour cream, ground turkey, and had to make tomato sauce from canned tomatoes."

"Very tasty, even with my lower fat modifications. I used lean ground turkey instead of beef, low fat ricotta, and fat free mozarella while adding an extra 1/2 tsp of the spices."
