For lunch today I made a pesto from spinach, pine nuts, garlic and EVOO. I love spinach and I love that it's nutritious at the same time, but does making it into a pesto (I didn't cook it) diminish the nutritional value of it?
What's not to love about layers of pasta, gooey cheese, and rich tomato sauce? Lasagna is simply delicious, and this spinach and ricotta version (with Parmesan and mozzarella too) is as easy to make as it is to eat.
Swirl up a forkful of this rich, creamy play on lasagna. Packed with the same great flavors of the traditional dish, our veggie-packed version packs in nutrition while slashing carbs.
