Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. Open the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef with the minced onion and garlic. Drain, if needed. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, spinach, and Italian seasoning. Bring to bubbling over medium heat.
  3. Stir in broken lasagna noodles and stock, pressing the noodles all the way into the liquid. Cover with tight fitting lid and simmer over medium low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until pasta has absorbed the liquid. Note: sauce will thicken some, as it cools.
  4. While pasta is cooking, mix together the cottage cheese and grated Parmesan cheese. Dollop on top of the spinach lasagna, after pasta has cooked.
  5. Prepare the salad.
  6. Serve Spinach Lasagna Skillet with side salad.
