spinach lasagna recipe
I tasted Lasagna / Lasagne only once. It was Mushroom lasagna and even I came to know that there is one dish called so only that dayTongue! Its from New York New York restaurant. But I have no idea if it had egg or no. I have never thought of trying it that at home. Firstly no idea about the recipe, next, the cheese it had. It looked very cheesy more than a pizza. But Aj had been asking me to make it for past few months. So I got lasagna sheets from fairprice when I go tthe bow tie pasta. But kept postponing. Last week I finally made it and it turned out delicious. I saw few recipes in the internet, but most of them had egg in it and had different combination of cheese which included parmesan. But these days I stopped consuming parmesan, also few recipes used either fresh lasagna pasta or the one which needs to get the pasta sheets cooked before baking. But I wanted to try with the no pre cook lasagna sheets. So came up with a simpler version with easily available ingredients. But referred here  to get an idea and for baking time.

Spinach Lasagna recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Italian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch/ Dinner
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 45 mins    Serves: 4


Lasagna sheets (no boil)- 6

Pasta sauce - 1 & 1/2 cups

Mozarella cheese, grated- 1 & 1/2 cup

Paneer or cottage cheese- 1/2 cup

Cream cheese- 1/4 cup

Spinach, chopped- 2 cups

Garlic- 3 flakes, chopped

Black pepper- 1 tsp

Ripe red chilli (optional)- 1

Salt- As needed

Olive oil- 1 tblsp



  1. In a pan, heat olive oil with finely chopped garlic over medium flame for 2 minutes. Add chopped spinach, salt and pepper (chopped chilli if adding) and fry until it reduces in volume.
  2. 1 fry
  3. Switch off the stove and let it cool while you pre heat oven at 190 deg C and keep paneer immersed in hot water. Once cooled down, place the spinach, 3/4 cup mozarella, cream cheese and well crumbled paneer.
  4. 2 mix
  5. Mix it well. In a oven safe dish (I used 10*6 inch rectangle oven safe glassware) first start with a thin spread of the pasta sauce.
  6. 3 mixed
  7. Place the lasagna sheets without over lapping. Break it if it doesn’t fit and arrange as a single layer. Spread another layer of pasta sauce over it so that you cover all the lasagna sheets.
  8. 4 spread
  9. Now spread a layer of the spinach cheese mixture. Again cover it by arranging the lasagna sheets as before.
  10. 5-spread
  11. Now again spread pasta sauce, spinach mixture and again lasagna sheets.
  12. 6 spread.
  13. Lastly finish it with pasta sauce layer and sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup mozarella cheese.
  14. 7 spread
  15. Bake it with aluminium foil covered for 40 – 45 minutes at 190 deg C. Once done set the lasagna at least for 15 minutes before serving. Cut the sheets to get squares to serve.
  16. 8 done


    • I used readymade pasta sauce. So you can buy this easily in stores to reduce your work. You can use any tomato based pasta sauce according to your taste.
    • You can reduce or increase mozzarella cheese as per your taste.
    • Covering with aluminium foil prevents over cooking of the cheese on the top, If not covered, it gets browned and burnt soon.
    • If not using the no boil pasta, boil as per instructions given in the pack and then proceed with this recipe.

It’s a heavy and rich dish, so can be served in small servings along with other items like pizza, pasta etc. Perfect for get to-gathers,
