Spinach Recipes


Here is our favorite Spinach Lasagne (it was a recipe contest winner). It's different than any other that you've probably had and sooo good!

10 oz. frozen spinach (or 1 bunch cooked fresh)
6 oz. lasagne noodles
1 lb. ground beef (can also add 1/8 lb. pork sausage if you like)
3/4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. pepper
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 lb. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. oregano
3/4 tsp. worcestershire sauce parmesan cheese sprinkled on top

Brown meat in skillet. Add salt, pepper, oregano & worchestershire. Stir in cooked & well-drained spinach. In oil dripped pan arrange 1/2 cooked noodles, 1/2 meat mixture and 1/2 cheese. Repeat layers. Heat soup & milk together. Stir until well blended and pour over top of casserole, separating noodles a bit to let seep down in. Pour tomato sauce over top and sprinkle generously with parmesan chees. Bake at 350 for 30 min.
It's very easy, also, to throw a handful of spinach into your smoothie. You can't taste it at all. We also sautee a HUGE bunch of spinach, blend it up, and mix it into the egg before cooking scrambled eggs. Again, you can't taste it, and Amaya doesn't seem to mind that they're green at all.
