We love this gluten-free vegetarian spinach lasagna in our house. It is quick and easy to make and pretty affordable. I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe as much as our family and friends do!
Zesty Vegetarian Spinach Lasagna
- 1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms,thinly sliced
- 4 spring onions, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1 can (28 fl.oz) crushed tomatoes
- 1 can (5 1/2 fl.oz) tomato paste
- 2 T. red wine vinegar
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 lb. ricotta cheese
- 1 – 10 oz pack of fresh spinach finely chopped
OR 1 package frozen chopped thawed & drained spinach
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 T fresh basil, chopped
- pinch of nutmeg
- 1 package of gluten free oven ready lasagna noodles
- 1 lb. grated mozzarella cheese
Garnish, if desired with fresh chopped basil
Sauté mushrooms, onions and garlic in oil using medium size saucepan until garlic is lightly browned. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, red wine vinegar and pepper. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Combine in medium bowl ricotta cheese, spinach, egg, basil and nutmeg; whisk to blend. In a 9 x 13 x 2 baking dish, spoon 1/4 of the sauce over the bottom. Next use lasagne directly from the package. Layer lasagne over the sauce, always leaving at least 3/4″ space between strips since lasagne will expand during baking. Spoon another 1/4 of the sauce then another layer of noodles and then spread all of the ricotta cheese/ spinach mixture on top. Arrange another layer of noodles, then 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese. Finally layer the last of the lasagne then the remaining sauce making certain all noodles are coated to sauce. Top with the remainder of mozzarella. Bake in 350 F. oven uncovered for 35 – 40 minutes. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Makes 8 – 10 servings.

The Match Makers
Ross & Sue London

After I went through divorce with my practice husband, I honestly thought I would spend the rest of my life alone. I was a 38 year old woman who had been through 18 surgeries and had countless scars to show for it. I will always remember my divorce lawyer saying, “Mark my words , in five years you will be remarried.” My reply was “Not Happening!” For the first time in my life I was not under the control of a man. I could live the life I wanted. I could do the things I enjoyed. A huge part of me felt that if I got involved with another man, I would lose my freedom and identity. It was great to finally be my true self. Twenty-five days short of the five year anniversary of my divorce, I married my soul mate, Ross. My intuitive lawyer, Barb, later shared she had a very strong feeling come over her to share that thought. Was it divinely guided? Were my loved ones on the other side trying to tell me all was going to be alright in my life? Absolutely, but I had ignored it!
In order for me to prepare and attract my Mr. Right I had a lot of work to do first. After my divorce, I needed the time to heal myself physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. Going through abuse and learning my husband had girlfriends during most of our married life was not easy to swallow. Growing up in an abusive, unloving home didn’t help either. I had very low in confidence and self-esteem. I knew I had come to a time in my life where I had to take time to heal all these deep wounds. I knew if I didn’t take this much needed time to heal, then I would repeat the past and experience more abusive relationships throughout my life. Every time I took the needed time to work on myself I saw miracles unfold around me. And I can honestly tell you, I was amazed with what events unfolded next.

A Strong Determination
You can create more good days then bad days in your life! You have the choice. Start each morning just before hopping out of bed and say, “It’s going to be a fantastic day! I’m going to be productive and successful in everything that I do!” Don’t let things hold you back. Put out your intentions for what you want to create that day. Let your strong determination kick into gear and create the lifestyle you desire.
Worrying is a huge waste of time and energy. Well over half of the things we worry about never come to fruition. What you put your focus on, you will attract! Always ask yourself… can I do something about this? If you can, then do it. If you can’t, then forget about it and let nature take its course.
