Tomato Spinach Lasagna



Pasta


Rich and Creamy

This mouthwatering Tomato Spinach Lasagna is perfect when baked with a creamy Alfredo Sauce. It is a rich pasta dish that is full of flavor.

I like adding a few fresh sage leaves to the sauce to give it a sweet savory taste. Don’t use to many leaves or the sage will overpower the other ingredients. Just two or three leaves will work just fine.

Tomato Spinach Lasagna is a great alternative from your traditional lasagna recipe. The best part is you still get to top it with some fresh mozzarella cheese.
