Ingredients

    1 lb. spicy Italian chicken sausage
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 jar Bertolli olive oil and garlic pasta sauce
    1 cup tomato sauce
    1 can (8 oz.) mushrooms, sliced
    seasoning (garlic, fennel, etc.)
    10 oz. package frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
    2 Cups part skim ricotta
    1/2 cup grated parmesan
    2 eggs
    3/4 package Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Lasagna noodles, cooked per package directions and laid out in a single layer on wax paper
    8 oz. part skim mozzarella, shredded

Directions

Remove sausage from casings, place in nonstick skillet. Add onion to sausage, and saute both for 10 minutes, breaking up sausage as you go. Add 1/2 water, pasta sauce, tomato sauce, mushrooms, and seasoning to taste (I enjoy adding garlic and ground fennel.) Heat through.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine spinach, eggs, parmesan, and ricotta cheese.

In a 13x9 baking dish, spread 1/2 of the sauce. Top with four lasagna noodles to cover the surface. Spread half of the ricotta mixture, top with sauce. Sprinkle a third of the mozzarella on top. Repeat noodles, ricotta, sauce, and mozzarella. Finish with a layer of noodles, sauce, and remaining mozzarella. Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

9 generous servings
