  • Noodles. I opt for no-boil lasagna noodles in my lasagna recipe. I love how easy it is to layer without the extra effort of boiling up noodles. However, should you choose to boil and cook lasagna noodles first, you'll need to decrease the amount of sauce in this recipe to 4-5 cups.
  • Sauce. If you're looking to make homemade spaghetti sauce you'll need about 7 cups of marinara sauce. To make things easy, I use my favorite jarred marinara sauce and it always turns out fantastic!
  • Meat. You will need about 2 pounds of ground meat for this hearty lasagna recipe. I choose to use a combination of ground beef and ground italian sausage. The flavor of sausage with beef can't be beat!
  • Spinach. Cooking up fresh spinach is a cinch in this recipe. You'll be amazed how a bag cooks down to hardly anything. But trust me, it's plenty for today. This is a great time to add in other vegetables your family may enjoy...mushrooms, zucchini, peppers, etc.
  • Cheese. You'll need ricotta, parmesan, cottage cheese, and mozzarella for this Spinach Lasagna.
  • STORAGE: See blog post for details on freezing cooked and uncooked lasagna.
