Being half Sicilian, I grew up eating a lot of pasta. A LOT of pasta. Spaghetti, penne with Italian sausage, lasagna, all with red sauce, at least once a week.

As an adult, I rebelled against red sauce, until I started making my own (but that’s a whole ‘nother post).

I became a much bigger fan of garlic and olive oil (preferably over penne with broccoli), Alfredo, primavera, vodka sauce–anything except marinara.

So when I found a recipe that loosely resembled this one, I jumped on it. Of course, I have to tweak, and change, and do things my way, so after some trial and error, I came up with this creamy lasagna that my family LOVES.

Now, I know the package says no-boil lasagna noodles. I know this. I also know that if I parboil them, they still maintain their integrity, so they’re easier to set in layers, but it also cuts the baking time in half.

It’s entirely up to you whether or not you want to boil them, parboil them, or just lay them in the pan straight out of the box. Just adjust your baking time accordingly.

Start by pouring enough Alfredo sauce into the bottom of a 13×9 to just cover it, then lay down your first layer of noodles and cover with another thin layer of sauce.

Saute a small onion and a package of sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper, then spread over the noodles and sauce. Lay down another layer of noodles and sauce.

Squeeze as much water as you can out of a 20 oz bag of spinach and combine it with garlic salt and pepper to taste. Spread this mixture over the noodles and sauce, then top with two cups of shredded mozzarella, pepperjack, or a combination of whatever cheeses that you like.

Build the final layer with another layer of noodles and sauce, and the last two cups of shredded cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the noodles are tender.

Serve with a simple green salad and garlic bread for a hearty comfort-food dinner.

What You’ll Need:

One package of lasagna noodles–you’ll use about 12 noodles

Two jars of Alfredo sauce

20 oz package of frozen spinach

small package of mushrooms, sliced

one medium onion

salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste
