Trying a New Online Recipe: Spinach Lasagna III

I love spinach. Though I often eat it in salads, in sandwiches, and by itself topped with a bit of butter and sea salt, my favorite way is in a pasta dish. The idea to make spinach lasagna got stuck in my head and I knew it wouldn’t go away until I actually made it. The last time I tried winging it and it ended up more mixed pasta dish than lasagna. This time I wasn’t messing around and while looking up a recipe online, I found allrecipes.com’s Spinach Lasagna III.

Here is my breakdown of this recipe.

  • Ingredients shopping: Easy/medium – I didn’t have all the cheeses so I had to track them down in sizes that would work for the recipe. Everything else was either already in the kitchen or easily found at the grocery store.
  • Prep: Easy/medium – Basic cutting and measuring plus multiple steps for the filling. Layering the noodles takes a bit of patience but as long as you don’t rush the placement it works out.
  • Cooking: Easy – Sautéing veggies was easy. Once the dish was in the oven, all I had to do was set the timer.
  • Make it again: DEFINITELY! It was cheesy and delicious and satisfied my wanting spinach lasagna.
  • Modify it: Yes. The leftover mushrooms I intended to use had gone bad in the fridge. Since I wasn’t going out for one item, I substituted asparagus.
  • Works for leftovers: Yes. I made just shy of the full recipe (since I bought slightly less ricotta) which is TWELVE servings. We both ate it several days and gave some away. It also reheated extremely well in the microwave.

  1. I’m pretty sure I’ve told you this before, but I love how you write these recipe reviews! Short and to the point, with all of the things that I want to know before making a random recipe.

    And I know lasagna isn’t the most photogenic thing, but I do wish there was a photo. Photos are usually the things that sway me to make recipe, even if it has things in it that I don’t love.
