La La Laaa......Lasagna (My Recipe)

I have been making lasagna for years.  My family LOVES it (except for Amanda, she doesn't like ricotta cheese - I know, what kind of Italian is she?!).  It is probably one of the easiest, throw together meals ever.  If you have a big family make one big dish.  If you have a smaller family make two; eat one, freeze one (use two 8x8 pans).  Lasagna freezes really well. Just bake, freeze it and pull it out on a busy night, pop it in the microwave for a few minutes and serve.

2 bags shredded mozzarella cheese
1 bag Italian shredded cheese (provolone, mozzarella)
Parmesan cheese
1 small box frozen, choppen spinach (thawed)
2 eggs
1 46 oz. container ricotta cheese
Spaghetti sauce
Cooked lasagna noodles

*If you don't like spinach, just don't add it in.  I do like to add it, because it really doesn't make that big of a difference taste wise and it gives me a chance to throw a veggie in the mix.

Heat oven to 350*  Mix together in a big bowl - 1 bag of the mozzarella cheese, the Italian cheese, some parmesan cheese (about 1 cup), spinach, ricotta cheese, 2 eggs, some parsely.

In a 9x13 inch baking dish.....let the layering begin! Sauce, Noodles, Sauce, Ricotta Cheese Mixture - Repeat. 

When you get to the last layer sprinkle the remaining bag of mozzarella cheese on top and Bake for an hour.

By the way, I use pretty much the same ricotta cheese mixture for my manicotti and stuffed shells too.
