It’s said that not all heroes wear capes. And in the case of tomato sauce it’d be a little tricky to pull off the look, but believe me, it can really save the day.
When midweek hits and you have no idea what to cook, this easy but comforting five ingredient lasagna is the perfect answer. Not traditional, but equally delicious, it’s layered with a simple filling of cottage cheese and spinach and the hero of the night: Muir Glen tomato sauce. Within 10 minutes of getting home you can have the oven preheating, layer everything into a pan and pop it in the oven for 30 minutes while you wind down. Then cue up a binge-sesh and tuck into a piece of the classic comfort food.
And, so you’re never left stuck feeling at a loss when the week just won’t end, stock up so you know you always have a can of tomatoes around. Between 1/29/2020 and 2/12/2020 head to your local Whole Foods (locate it here: http://bit.ly/wf-stores) to pick up 10 for $10 on Muir Glen products, including the 15oz. cans of tomato sauce used in this recipe.
What you'll need:
2 (15 ounce) cans Muir Glen Tomato Sauce 10 ounce package frozen spinach 16 ounces cottage cheese 6 oven ready lasagna sheets
optional, for garnish Parmesan
YIELD: Serves 6-8
What you'll do:
1) Preheat the oven to 375 ̊F.
2) Add the frozen spinach to a small pot and place over a low/medium heat. Add the cottage cheese and eggs and mix well and heat through.
3) Add a thin layer of Muir Glen Tomato Sauce to the bottom of your lasagna pan. Then a layer of noodles (place the noodles so they cover the whole of the bottom of the pan without overlapping–use as many as you need based on the size of your pan but typically 3 cover it well. Next add another thin layer of sauce. Then filling, spreading it out to cover the noodles. Repeat until the filling and sauce is used up.
4) Cover with tin foil and pop in the oven. Let it cook for about 25-30 minutes before checking, and then see if the noodles are soft and have expanded and if the liquid has been absorbed
(basically, does it look done and delicious enough to eat? Use your senses and your gut to know).
5) Then (optional) add more cheese and pop back in the oven uncovered for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted. Garnish with basil or more grated cheese and serve.
