Ingredients

Sweet Potato Cheese Sauce

  • 1 ½ cups whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 ½ cups cottage cheese
  • 1 ½ cups cooked sweet potato puree or use 1 15 oz can
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg

Tomato Sauce

  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 packed cups fresh spinach
  • 1 24 oz jar marinara sauce
  • 1 tbs oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Other

  • 1 packet oven-ready lasagna sheets
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Handful of fresh basil

Instructions

  • All ingredients ready? Let's begin!
  • If you’re going to bake the lasagna immediately, start by preheating your oven to 350⁰F (180⁰C).
  • Grease or spray a deep casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  • Make the sweet potato cheese sauce by folding the sweet potato puree, ricotta cheese, and cottage cheese with a spatula. Set aside.
  • Move on to the tomato sauce. Finely dice the onion, mince the garlic, and roughly chop the spinach.
  • Heat your olive oil in a heavy frying pan. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add your chopped spinach and minced garlic to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Pour in the marinara sauce. Heat to a simmer. Simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Assemble your lasagna by layering ½ cup tomato sauce, cover with lasagna sheets, and adding ½ cup cheese sauce.
  • You may have to break the lasagna sheets to fit your casserole dish.
  • Repeat the layers until you have used all the sauce.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the sweet potato lasagna from the oven and top with mozzarella cheese.
  • Put the thoroughly cheesy lasagna back in the oven for another 10 minutes until the cheese has melted and turned golden brown and bubbly.
  • Allow the lasagna to stand for 10-30 minutes before serving so that the layers can set and not slide apart as you cut into them.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped basil before serving.
