Picture of Quick Spinach Lasagna Microwave

This is my entry in the Dorm food contest, because it is very fast and requires no special equipments and yet healthy, tasty and filling.

Though I am no longer a student or living in a dorm use this recipe quite often since it is quick no doubt and absolutely no compensation on taste.

A perfect meal when I am too tired or running out of time to cook.

Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of Ingredients:

you will need a microwave proof dish and a microwave( yes you could make it in an oven too but will take much longer than 20 minutes.

Pasta: Lasagna sheets or any other flat noodles.

1 can tomato salsa

spinach fresh leaves(around 2cups)-I use the spinach from salad packs

soft cream cheese- I use ricotta but philadelphia would work as well.

grated cheese of your choice( cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan)

Optional spices- nutmeg powder, herbs like thyme/ basil, pepper,

salt to taste

1-2Tbs milk

Step 2: Process

Picture of Process

wash and dry the spinach leaves.

stir the soft cheese with 2Tbs milk -season with your choice of spices and salt.

Start arranging in layers.

First spread a layer of tomato salsa

Cover this with a layer of pasta sheets/noodles

then a thick layer of spinach leaves, followed by cheese sauce.

Repeat these layers in the same order till your dish fills up to the brim.-the last layer should be that of the cheese sauce. Sprinkle a thick cheese layer as a final step.

Step 3: Microwaving

Place the dish in the microwave and set the heat on a medium for 20 min. In my case it is 650W.

Let it cook for 20 minute.

After 2o minutes get the dish with a cloth or cooking gloves and let it cool a bit.

Be careful while handling the dish- it is very hot and steam from it can cause burns.

The Lasagna is ready...absolutely amazing- no compensation in taste or in texture!
