This was a great recipe to prepare the night before, refrigerate and cook the next morning. A little bit of time involved in prep but the end result was delicious. Thawed and drained chopped spinach and browned the hash browns (set aside to cool) before adding them to the dish. My 5 year old and 16 year old picky eater have asked me to make this again.

I've made this a number of times and it always goes over well. Just a couple tips. Use a deep 9x13 such as pampered chef's, and cook it for 1 hr. and 15 min.

I make this lasagna every year for Easter breakfast at church because it is a crowd favorite. I haven't heard a single complaint that it's too spicy.
