Lasagna

We all love lasagna! My "assistants" love to help layer the lasagna and help eat the broken noodles. When I make lasagna, I always make two and freeze one of them. We often vacuum seal individual portions for easy "microwave lunches" to take to work.

  • 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce

  • 1 1/2 tsp. fennel, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen spinach
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley flake
  • 8 oz. mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 10 lasagna noodles
