Lasagna was always one of my favorite dishes as a child. The warm, gooey, richness of all the layers of cheese and sauce delighted me.
My mom always told me that it was unhealthy, and I assumed that it was a lot of work. So, I just decided I was never going to make it.
Then I found a recipe for “lazy” lasagna. And WOW, just wow.
I figured it would be good, but I went into it a little skeptical. My husband and I enjoyed it, but there was way too much food so we took the leftovers to a church potluck the next day.
I got compliments from multiple junior high boys and seasoned mothers (a.k.a. the most important compliments you could ever receive about your cooking).
I changed a few things and created my own version of the recipe. Be ready to NEVER make traditional lasagna again.
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic
1 jar spaghetti sauce, any kind
1 bag shredded mozzarella cheese (6 oz.)
1 package ravioli, any kind
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
