Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat 6 quarts water and 1/4 cup salt to a rolling boil in stock pot
  • Add noodles, and boil until al dente (about 12-15 minutes)
  • In saute pan, brown the hamburger and sausage, drain off the fat, return to stovetop and add spaghetti sauce, except reserve 3/4 cup of sauce for the top of the lasagna
  • when thoroughly mixed and heated through, transfer meatsauce mixture to the large bowl
  • In the same saute pan, melt 1 tbspn butter and 1 clove minced garlic until bubbly and aromatic, and then add the sliced crimini mushrooms, and saute on medium-high heat until carmelized--add to meatsauce
  • In the same saute pan, melt another tbspn butter, 1 clove garlic, and zucchini slices, and saute over medium-high heat until carmelized, then add to the meatsauce mixture--*note: be sure to saute the mushrooms, zucchini and spinach separately, otherwise the moisture contents will mix and you will not get a good carmelization...it makes a difference in the final dish, trust me.
  • Mix the meatsauce, mushrooms, zucchini and 1/4 cup of parsley...this will be one layer of the lasagna
  • In the same saute pan, melt the final tbspn of butter and garlic, and saute the spinach over medium-high heat until wilted
  • Butter the bottom and sides of the baking pan and lay the first layer of noodles, then add a layer of meatsauce, and then a layer of ricotta, and then a layer of spinach, and then a layer of mozzerella, and then another layer of noodles, and then repeat with each of the other layers, finishing with a layer of noodles.
  • Top the last layer of noodles with the reserved spaghetti sauce and sprinkle with 1/4 cup of parsley
  • Bake, covered with aluminum foil, for 40 minutes in a pre-heated 350* F oven, or until hot and bubbly. Remove the foil in the last 10 minutes of baking.
