Tuscan Spinach Lasagna Recipe

This recipe is lighter than many traditional lasagna dishes.

Tuscan Spinach Lasagna



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix the two cheeses and set aside.
  3. Sauté the sliced onion in 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat, until soft.
  4. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add the remaining olive oil, spinach, basil, mushrooms, and red pepper to the pan and cook for about 3-5 minutes over medium heat.
  6. Turn the heat off and add the olives, salt, and pepper to the pan and stir.
  7. In a 4” x 8” baking dish place a layer of the sautéed spinach mixture, then and a layer of lasagna pasta.
  8. Sprinkle with a small amount of cheese.
  9. Repeat the process ending with the last of the pasta and cheese mixture on top.
  10. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  11. Uncover the pan and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese has bubbled and browned slightly.
  12. Allow the lasagna to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Note: This dish is based on one that I had in Tuscany and doesn't have heavy ricotta cheese layer of many lasagnas. It is a healthier take with lots of good vegetables with vitamins.
