Heinen’s Weekly Deal Meal – Spinach Lasagna

by | Oct 19, 2018 | Recipes


Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes | Serves: 6-8

Sometimes you just need some good old fashioned comfort food. And when it comes to comfort food, nothing beats a good old family recipe. This spinach lasagna is a take on my mom’s lasagna, passed down to her from my grandma. It’s quick, easy, and oh so satisfying and I even snuck in some greens for an extra dose of veggies. ‘Building’ the layers of the lasagna would be super fun to do with your kiddos. Make a double batch to freeze for a busy day. Enjoy!

2TSP olive oil

1 32oz Little Italy Pasta Sauce*

1 lb Italian sausage, hot or mild, casings removed*

9 lasagna noodles*

Spinach Lasagna Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In large pot, bring salted water to a boil and cook lasagna noodles until al dente. Cook a few extra noodles just in case some tear.
  3. In large pan, heat olive on medium heat until shimmering. Add in Italian sausage and cook until browned.
  4. While sausage cooks, rough chop spinach.
  5. Add spinach to cooked sausage and cook 2-3 minutes more until wilted.
  6. Pour pasta sauce over top and heat through. Season to taste with S&P.
  7. Once noodles have cooled a bit, place 3 noodles side by side in a 9X12 baking dish.
  8. Spread 1/3 of meat mixture over top of the noodles. Then, spread 1/3 of cottage cheese over meat mixture. Finally, sprinkle 1/3 of mozzarella cheese on top of the cottage cheese.  Repeat this 2 more times so you will have three layers total.
  9. Put in oven and bake for about 30 minutes until heated through and cheese is golden on top.
