How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • I did the next 3-4 steps mostly at the same time:
  • For sauce, saute everything except last two ingredients; add soup and sour cream; simmer a little, turning heat off and on, stirring occasionally. Do not cook all the way down.
  • In 3qt. pot (or bigger), bring 2-1/2 qts. (at least) water to boiling, add salt, 1 tsp oil, and noodles; boil noodles 5 minutes, turn off heat and let sit.
  • Saute crumbled sausage in 2 T oil for 5 minutes; add garlic and cook till meat is browned. Turn heat to low; add pepper, 1/2 tsp Tony's, and spinach. (May need a dash more oil to stir in spinach.) When well-blended, turn off heat.
  • In large bowl, fold together ricotta, egg, 1/4 cup Parmesan, 1/4 cup mozzarella, and 1/2 tsp Tony's.
  • Spray a 12x8 (or 13x9) casserole with butter spray.
  • Drain noodles.
  • Bottom Combination:
  • Barely cover the bottom of dish with sauce.
  • Lay 2 lasagna noodles, not touching, lengthwise down the dish (the ends will stick up past the lip of a 12x8 dish).
  • Spread half of ricotta mixture evenly over noodles.
  • Spread half of meat mixture over ricotta.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup mozzarella over meat.
  • Middle Combination:
  • Some sauce, 2 noodles, rest of ricotta, rest of meat, 1/2 cup mozzarella.
  • Top Combination:
  • 2 noodles, rest of sauce, mozzarella, and Parmesan.
  • Cover casserole tightly with foil and bake for 1 hour.
  • Remove foil and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes before serving. If you can wait that long!
