Ingredients

  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups pasta sauce
  • 8 ounces no-boil lasagna noodles about 8-10
  • 1 1/2 cups small curd cottage cheese
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts optional, for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees °F.
  • Place the sliced mushrooms in a casserole dish and add olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Bake the mushrooms for about 10 minutes, then set aside and drain any extra liquid in the casserole dish.
  • Pour about 1/2 of the pasta sauce mixture into the empty casserole dish.
  • Place 3-4 of the lasagna noodles on top of the mixture (breaking each one in half, if necessary).
  • Press each noodle down so that it's covered with about 1/4" of the pasta sauce mixture on top.
  • Add 1/2 of the cottage cheese to the casserole dish.
  • Add a layer of 1/2 of the mushrooms and 1/2 of the spinach.
  • Top with 1/2 of the mozzarella and 1/2 of the parmesan.
  • Repeat steps 4-9 with the remaining ingredients.
  • Top with chopped walnuts (optional).
  • Cover the casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Tips:
  • If you or your family aren't a fan of the texture of spinach, you can also use kale or chop the spinach into smaller pieces!
  • It's best to bake the lasagna covered for 30 minutes, then uncovered for the remaining 15 minutes.
  • Adjust the amount of cheese to your own taste.
  • Be sure to let the lasagna cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting into slices!
Storing:
  • This recipe can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or the freezer for up to 3 months!
  • To store, let cool completely and place in an airtight container.
