Tweak If you think I should change something:

SPINACH LASAGNA 1 med. onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp. olive oil

2 to 3 tbsp. water

1 lb. part-skim ricotta

1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 lbs. fresh spinach, chopped (about 2 c.) or 1 pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained

2 egg whites, beaten

1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper

2 to 3 tbsp. fresh chopped parsley

1/2 lb. lasagna noodles

Non-stick vegetable cooking spray

6 oz. part-skim Mozzarella, grated

6 c. tomato sauce

Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil, adding water as needed to keep from sticking. Combine ricotta, Parmesan, spinach, egg whites, black pepper, parsley and sauteed onion and garlic, mixing well. Cook the lasagna according to package directions.Spray a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan with cooking spray. Arrange a layer of cooked noodles on the bottom, top with 1/3 of the ricotta mixture, sprinkle with Mozzarella and spread with tomato sauce. Repeat layers twice more, ending with sauce. Cover pan with aluminum foil, crimping edges tightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake 10 to 15 minutes more.

More (MUCH MORE) garlic..........2 cloves is for wimps, and ya might as well not even have it in there.....wink.gif

 

And I don't get the "add water to keep from sticking" part.....If your garlic and onions are sticking while sauting in olive oil, you are doing something wrong.......cwm13.gif

 

The other thing is if you are using fresh spinach, ain't NO WAY 1 1/2 pounds is gonna be equivilant to 10 ounces of frozen cooked spinach.......you'll be lucky to get a quarter cup.
