Delicious Meatless Spinach Lasagna

meatless spinach lasagna, Delicious Meatless Spinach Lasagna,

 When I first got married, (almost 22 years ago) a close friend made this lasagna for my husband and myself. I was not a spinach lover at the time, and was so surprised to really like this lasagna, but I did, and I have made this recipe many many times in the last 2 decades.

You can also sprinkle the top with some Parmesan cheese. Make sure the noodles are covered so they won’t get hard. Tightly cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 1/4 hours at 350 degrees.  The last few minutes you can uncover and let the cheese on top get nice and bubbly.
