About Spinach and Ricotta Lasagna Recipe

Lasagna is an Italian classic, mainly layers of pasta sheets filled with meat and cheese. There are various vegetarian versions too, mainly with brinjal/ eggplant as its core ingredient. I tried to use Spinach instead, and what better than Ricotta to go with Spinach. I added a layer of Tomato and Basil sauce, to add a tangy and herby flavor to my lasagna.
