    45 mins

    1 hr 10 mins


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and lay noodles on a paper towel.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage, spicing to taste, until no longer pink, and reserve.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the ricotta and 2 jars of spaghetti sauce. In a medium bowl, mix the Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
  4. Stir all but one cup of the cheese mixture into the ricotta mixture; stir in the sausage and chopped spinach.
  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  6. Coat the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with a thin layer of spaghetti sauce. Lay 3 to 4 noodles lengthwise and side by side; then lay 3 to 4 noodles overlapping and in a staggered pattern on top.
  7. Add a generous layer of the sausage/cheese; repeat layers twice, until they have reach 1/2 inch from the top of the baking dish. Layer noodles on top of the lasagna and coat in the last jar of spaghetti sauce. Cover with last cup of cheese mixture and bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Slice and serve, and then see a dietician... It's deadly.

This recipe has the potential to be the best lasgna recipe ever. I made two 13x9x3 pans so I didn't have the problem with too much sauce/cheese mixture left over. Since I used the "no boil" lasgna noodles, the next time I make it I will bake it at a lower temperature for more time and cover it for part of the cooking time. Baking it at 425 degrees for 45 minutes made it taste like it cooked fast (the flavors didn't seem to blend like they should), the final layer of cheese on the top was too crusty, and the noodles were still a little crunchy (my fault for not using regular lasgna noodles). I also used more pasta sauce because I thought the no-boil noodles would need more liquid. Also, I'm a tradionalist when it comes to the appearance of lasgna. Even though it tasted superb, I'd rather layer my sauce/meat mixture and my cheese/spinach mixture instead of mixing them together. My daughter, who doesn't like spinach or sausage, even liked it!

Very Good and Filling! Great for a party dish and or christmas dish. My children weren't to thrilled with the looks but, ate it and overall somewhat liked it. We used a little less parmesan and mozerella cheese but was very a very good dish. I will make it again for a holiday.

This recipe is very yummy lasagna. The only suggestion I have is either using two smaller pans or a larger one. Mine not only overflowed, but I couldn't use all that yummy mixture!

This recipe was the best lasagna I've EVER had. I was proud to serve it to our friends across the street. It makes a lot and it's not exactly healthy, but it's delicious.

very tasty, but a little dry. I would use more sauce next time and make sure it is covered before baking.

My family LOVED this! My husband told me he had a new found respect for me after he ate it. After 8 years of marriage he said it was by far the best dish I have made! I used more 1/2 pound more sausage and a little less sauce. I used two pans and froze one of them because it makes so much. There was no way it was all going to fit!

MMMM! When it comes to lasagna, I thought calories didn't count anyway? (hehe!) Very nice recipe Paul! Pass the garlic bread!! :-)

After reading all of the reviews I couldn't wait to make this dish and serve it to my family. Unfortunately no one was crazy about it and after tasting it I wasn't either. I followed the directions exactly because the first time I make something I like to make it as it is posted. Anyways - the sausage part was good but too little of it and there was way too much sauce. My kids stated that they liked the lasagna noodles and the meat but not the sauce - that ricotta/sauce combination did not taste good - not sure if it was the amounts? So now I have a ton of leftovers in my fridge and I feel like I just threw my money away. I think next time I want a variation on lasagna I'll take a classic meat lasagna recipe and substitute pork sausage.
