Deep Dish Lasagna (12 Servings)


  • Author: Bobby

Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 uncooked lasagna noodles
  • 1 pound of sweet Italian sausage
  • ⅔ cup of chopped onions
  • ½ tablespoon of minced garlic
  • ⅔ cup of fresh parsley, chopped and divided
  • 3 (6 ounces) cans of tomato paste
  • 1 15 ounce can of tomato sauce
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of dried basil leaves
  • 1 pound of part-skim ricotta cheese
  • One package (10 ounces) frozen and squeezed dry spinach, chopped
  • ½ cup of Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Three eggs
  • Two teaspoons of garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 3 cups of mozzarella cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. Before beginning, preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish lightly.
  2. Bring a big saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil to begin with. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lasagna noodles are al dente; afterward, drain.
  3. Brown the sausage with the onions, garlic, and 1/2 of the parsley in a pan over medium heat; drain excess grease. Mix the tomato paste, tomato sauce, water, Italian seasoning, oregano, and basil until everything is thoroughly combined. Cook for 5 minutes, covered, stirring periodically.
  4. Combine the remaining parsley and ricotta, spinach, Parmesan, eggs, garlic salt, and pepper in a mixing dish and stir thoroughly.
  5. Two cups of sauce should be spread in the bottom of the baking dish. Layer 4 noodles, ½ of the cheese mixture, ⅓ of the remaining sauce, and 1 cup of mozzarella on top. Repeat the layering process, ending with noodles, sauce, and mozzarella cheese as the final layer. The pan should be covered with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and beginning to brown. Allow for a 10-minute cooling period before serving.
