Step 1: Brown the Beef

PREHEAT the oven to 375 degrees.

BROWN the beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Break up the meat with a spoon as it cooks.

SEASON to taste with salt and pepper.

STIR in the pasta sauce and reduce the heat to low.

Step 2: Mix the Ricotta

COMBINE the ricotta cheese, grated parmesan cheese, egg, Italian seasoning and garlic salt in a small bowl. Mix until smooth.

Step 3: Layer the Lasagna

SPRAY the baking dish with non-stick spray and add 1/2 cup water.

LAY 3 lasagna noodles in the water, side-by-side. (It's OK if they overlap a little.)

SPREAD 1/3 of the ricotta mixture over the noodles.

TOP with 1/3 of the spinach, 1/3 of the meat mixture and 1/3 of the mozzarella.

REPEAT these layers 2 more times

SPRINKLE cheddar cheese over the top.

Step 4: Bake the Lasagna

BAKE the lasagna at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.

Step 5: Prepare the Salad

CHOP the romaine lettuce. (NOTE: We give it to you whole to maintain optimal freshness.)

TOSS it in a salad bowl with the croutons, caesar dressing and shredded parmesan cheese.


Step 6: Serve It Up

REMOVE the lasagna from the oven. Let the lasagna "rest" for 5 minutes before serving.

SERVE the lasagna with caesar salad and enjoy!
