  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium bell pepper, any color you like, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 24 oz jar of pasta sauce, any flavor
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 12 lasagna noodles, uncooked
  • 1 15 oz tub of ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese


  • Saute the onion and peppers in olive oil over medium heat until tender, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
  • Add spaghetti sauce, vegetable broth, spices and spinach. Combine everything well.
  • Break lasagna noodles in half and add them to the sauce. Cover and cook for at least 20-25 minutes, or until the noodles are ready. If you need, add more sauce or broth so that the noodles do not dry out. Stir occasionally.
  • Once the noodles are cooked, spread the ricotta cheese over the lasagna.
  • Add the mozzarella cheese on top, and then the Parmesan cheese.
  • Place the skillet in the oven broil the cheese until melted, about 5 minutes. Watch closely so that the cheese doesn't burn.
  • Serve with a fresh green salad, if you wish. Buon Appetito!


If you want to save more time, you can chop the vegetables beforehand and freeze them in a Ziplock bag until you are ready to use them.
