Notes

This recipe can be made up to 24 hours in advance. Cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator.

Remove from the refrigerator to warm up 30-40 minutes before cooking. Before baking, remove the plastic wrap

and cover with aluminum foil.

You can use fresh or frozen spinach.If using frozen spinach, squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This step

is important to prevent the sauce from diluting.

Try adding different vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, mushrooms or tomatoes.

Shred or grate your own cheese. Prepackaged grated and grated cheese contains anti-caking agents that prevent

the cheese from melting easily.A lasagna should rest for 15-20 minutes so that it is easy to cut and serve without

the layers separating.

Roasted Chicken is a great option for this recipe. They are available at most grocery stores. They are always

delicious and relatively cheap.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
