Ingredients

Instructions

4 Italian sausage (mild & spicy)
1 Pound of ground beef
2 tbsp Olive Oil
3 Chopped shallots
2-4 Cloves of garlic, Chopped
1 Red onion, Chopped
1 Yellow onion, Chopped
2 celery branches, Chopped
1 orange bell pepper, Chopped
8-10 mushrooms, Chopped
1 Jalapeno, Chopped
Cherry Tomatoes, Chopped
1 cup frozen spinach
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of tomato sauce
6-8 oven ready lasagna noodles
1 large block of cheddar cheese, shredded

Spices:
4 tbsp Lemon pepper
3 tbsp Cajun
3 tbsp All purpose seasoning (Island spices)
¼ cup Parsley
2 tbsp Thyme
1 tbsp Salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Heat up 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large pot or wok on medium-high.
  3. Add all the chopped veggie with half of the spices and cook for 3-4 minutes then set aside.
  4. Season the meats with the reaming spices then add to heat (add more oil if needed).
  5. Add the tomato paste and cook with the meat until nice a brown.
  6. Combine the veggie and meats and cook for a few minutes.
  7. Add the can of diced tomatoes and the tomato sauce and mix until well combined.
  8. Add more spices to taste then let the sauce simmer on low while you prepare the lasagna.
    **Since the dish I selected was round, I boiled the oven ready lasagna noodles for 2-3 mins to make them easier to cut. However, if you selected a rectangular dish this would not be necessary.
  9. Start with the noodles on the bottom, then continue to layer with sauce cheese and the frozen spinach until the dish is full.
  10. Keep some cheese for the last 5 minutes of cooking to give the lasagna a crispy brown finish.
  11. Bake for 30-35 minutes, then add the cheese on top for the last 5 minutes.
