Spinach Lasagna

It’s Monday and my routine is finally falling right back into schedule. As I’ve been reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver, I’ve really been inspired to be eating more locally and in season. My garden is no where near to producing and the Des Moines Farmers Market doesn’t start for another 2 weeks. So…. I called Picket Fence Creamery and sure enough they had fresh spinach from a local farmer calling my name. I had to pick up milk anyways so it was a treat knowing that they were going to hold their last bag of spinach just for me so that I could make a spinach lasagna. An added bonus, they currently have bags of raw sugar for $1.79, SWEET!

    I love your website! I just found it this afternoon and I truly need to get off my bottom and close the laptop! I need to prepare lunch for the SO :).

    I wanted to add, why not make your pasta from scratch? It’s super simple and much tastier than boxed, processed lasagne. You can even go so far as to grind your own flour from wheat berries and a hand, or electric, mill. I confess, I use commercial flours, but I now make my own pasta. Although, quite honestly it is cheaper to buy a box of pasta at the dollar store, I do prefer homemade. Thank you again for your site!
