Spinach Lasagna

20180120_192852Lately I have totally been digging a casserole. They’re typically easy to assemble. I can assemble them ahead of time and bake when I’m ready. Or I can leave them for my husband to put in the oven a half hour before I get home (totally what I did with this one), so he doesn’t have to really do any work and can relax (he works in a kitchen all week, I like to cook at home).

I also like that I can pack a lot of different nutrients and foods into a casserole. And I can usually hide something I do not like into the casserole. In this instance I will confess I am not a spinach fan. Sorry, I know that I really shouldn’t say that, but it’s true. I can sometimes dig it sauteed or steamed but raw spinach or eating it on its own is not my thing. I have mad respect for spinach and its nutritional value. I WANT to like it. Just as I want to like avocado, but it makes me nauseous (literally eating avocado makes me queasy). Therefore, I will include spinach in a way that I find enjoyable.

Say in lasagna for instance. My dad has a really good lasagna with cabbage that I’ve made in the past. And I typically I make lasagna with zucchini strips, totally good. However, they only had puny zucchini at the store and it would take a tone to get the strips that I needed. I did have a ton of spinach, however.

Score, I decided to give it a go. It was totally delicious and very easy to make. Plus, since it’s just Zach and I, we usually have left-overs for another day. I for one love left-overs, because even though I love to cook, sometimes I don’t want to. So heating up left-overs of a delicious meal is completely my fav.

I hope that you all enjoy this recipe!

Bacon Lasagna

Let’s do another bacon recipe! This is actually inspired by my father and is more of a breakfast lasagna. I’ve done so many vegetable lasagnas, from zucchini to cabbage, but I really wanted something tasty and meaty. Thus today I bring you bacon lasagna.
