      Title: Amateur lasagna
 Categories: Casseroles, Pasta
      Yield: 10 Servings
     10 oz Frozen spinach
     60 oz Spaghetti sauce; two 30 oz.
      2 c  Ricotta cheese; part skim
  1 1/2 c  Mozzarella cheese; part skim
           -milk, shredded
      1    Egg; beaten
      8 oz Lasagna noodles
    1/8 ts Black pepper
    1/2 ts Oregano; optional
    1/2 ts Basil; optional
    1/2 c  Vegetable juice cocktail
    1/2 c  Water
  * Spaghetti sauce is available in a 30 ounce jar and also in smaller
  containers. For this recipe, I use about 1-1/2 to 2 jars of the Ragu
  Sauce in the 30 ounce container.
  1. Thaw the spinach and squeeze dry.
  2. In a large container mix the two cheeses, beaten egg, black pepper,
  oregano and basil. Add the thawed spinach and blend well.
  3. Use a 13 x 9 inch pan. Put a small amount of the sauce in bottom
  and spread lightly to cover bottom. This keeps the lasagna from
  sticking as it cooks, and enables you to remove it easily in neat
  4. Place one third of the uncooked noodles, one third of the sauce
  and one third of the cheese-spinach mixture. Make 3 layers this way,
  ending with the sauce.
  5. Combine the water and vegetable juice cocktail or tomato juice.
  Pour this carefully around the edges of the casserole, moving the
  noodles slightly with a spatula to get the liquid distributed evenly.
  Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese if desired.
  6. Cover tightly with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 1 and
  1/4 hours. Remove foil and continue baking for a few minutes more,
  until lightly browned and bubbling.
  7. Let stand for at least 15 minutes before serving. This lasagna can
  be sliced with a flat edged spatula and lifted out in serving-sized
  NOTES : I call this Amateur Lasagna because it does not require the
  noodles be cooked beforehand and uses ready-made spaghetti sauce. The
  addition of the spinach makes it a very nutritious dish. This freezes
  very well in serving sized portions, wrapped in foil; to heat, place
  in oven while still covered, or unwrap and heat in microwave on
  30-50% power.
