  • One of my family favorites during the winter time, it is so comfortable and keep my tummy warm. I am sure that people will follow the recipe on the back of package to make a lasagna. I did same thing with recipe,too. I have few recipes that I always have choices when I found some ingredients available in my pantry closet or in my refrigerator. I always have lot of fun to make lasagna. Sometime I will make two baking dish of lasagna, so I can put one in freezer for next Italian dinner. Sometime, I got bored with lasagna, I will look for an inspiration from other lasagna recipes and start to make new dish for dinner.

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 egg, beaten
1 cup creamed cottage cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 package sliced mozzarella cheese
1 package spinach, thawed,chopped

  • Cook lasagna in a large quantity of boiling water until just barely tender; drain off most of water; add ice cubes to stop cooking.
