It’s that time of year when our family routine is now in back to school mode. Anyone else? It’s also that time of year for me to have some meal plan for the busy weeknights ahead. Having a meal plan seems more important during the school year because our family schedule is pretty crazy. One way I can stick to my meal plan is to have some make ahead meals… and baked casseroles and pastas are my go to ideas. Lasagnas are especially good since they are easy to put together and will last at least a day or two for leftover lunches.
Another goal of mine is to incorporate more vegetables into our diets. That said, this particular recipe includes spinach and mushrooms to cross that goal off the list. I found the mushrooms lends a meaty texture and the spinach adds some green (which is always a good thing). Lasagna recipes are always pretty flexible and you can substitute with other vegetables if you wanted or even add protein (pepperoni, sausage, chopped meatballs, shredded chicken, etc). The flexibility of lasagna recipes allows you to make it your own. This recipe also is better the next day so if you’re looking for an easy lunch, this makes for excellent leftovers!
