Sausage Spinach Lasagna Recipe to be made in batches for back to school preparation
 Two thirds of our summer had passed and I am in that BTS mama bear mood. It's like in getting ready for hibernation, but instead of stocking up for sleeping all season, I'm preparing for back to school survival

One way I do this is by preparing a few tried and true meals for freezing. My two go-to freezer meals are an enchilada bake and a spinach sausage lasagna. When I prepare for this, I usually batch cook and make two at a time. One to heat for dinner that day and one to freeze for a busier day.

For the lasagna, I use Prego Italian Sauce. My mom used Prego in her Italian dishes, and it’s that homemade sweet and savory taste that we prefer.

Ingredients to make two pans of Sausage Spinach Lasagna you will need:

  • Prego Italian Sauce - Marinara flavor is my fav
  • 2 lbs. ground Italian Sausage
  • (2) 16 oz. mozzarella cheese
  • 6 oz. grated parmesan cheese
  • 15 oz. ricotta cheese 
  • (2) 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach
  • (2) 9x13 Foil Pans for Freezing
  • 1 package of no boil lasagna
First, I cook the ground sausage with italian seasoning and set aside. Second I mix the ricotta cheese and grated parmesan in a bowl and set aside. You will use this for both pans.

Third, I start the layering, 2 pans at a time.

Prego Italian sauce, then no-boil lasagna, a little more sauce, ricotta-parmesan mix, frozen spinach, italian sausage, a little mozzarella cheese, no-boil lasagna, sauce completely covering the pasta and them completely covered by the mozzarella. Cover with foil.

Always follow the cooking directions of your no-boil lasagna. My particular box said to preheat the oven to 375 degrees, cook covered for 25 minutes, uncovered for 5. Let sit for 15 mins. before serving. 

For me, Sundays work best for meal prep. I can grocery shop early in the morning and batch cook all day. I’ve been trying to break my coffee all day habit, so I love a V8 + Energy drinks as an alternative. They offer a combined serving of fruit and vegetables and has the energy of green tea! I picked them up in the juice section of Walmart.
