Spinach and Beef Lasagna Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Not quite sure how to rate this recipe, but the lasagna turned out quite well. I agree with other reviewer: instructions were not clear enough. I just followed the general outline of the recipe, so I used all the ingredients that were called for, but in terms of quantity, I kind of just eyeballed everything and added in the amount as I though appropriate. I also accidentally bought cottage cheese instead of ricotta cheese. It was too late by the time I realized that and so I went ahead and used it. It turned out very well and it got my daughter's approval, so hence, the 4 star rating. In my opinion, a much better recipe than the slow cooker lasagna.

The flavour on this dish is fantastic and flavour wise it should be 5 stars but there are some problems with the recipe itself. It calls for ½ lb. of ground beef I increased it to 1 lb. and still felt that it was skimpy. The recipe calls for ½ cup dry parsley this is way to much I used 1 tbsp. think next time will double this. I have never seen a 45 oz. jar of spaghetti sauce so I used a 28 oz. jar of spaghetti sauce and a 28 oz. jar to tomato sauce the extra worked great as I used 15 oz. of fresh spinach instead of frozen. Now for the instructions. There is no indication on what to do with the onions for I fried them up along with mushroom the beef and spices. Now for the layers as written there is no way that you can use ½ the amount of meat sauce in the layers and still have some for the top. The way it should read is as the following: small amount of sauce on the bottom of the pan, noodles, 1/3 of meat sauce, ½ of the cheese mixture, noodles, 1/3 of meat sauce, remaining cheese mixture, noodles and remaining of the meat mixture. Bake as pre the recipe instructions. I will be making this again.
