"Made with spinach (green) noodles instead of the more usual lasagna noodles, this recipe came from my mother and is one of the best versions of lasagna I've tried. It serves 4 very generously or 6 less generously."

Very simple recipe with great flavours. This takes a bit of time but well worth it. The end result was an amazingly thick, meaty and cheesy lasagne!! I did not use the ricotta as I am not a fan so instead I used more shredded mozzarella. Great recipe, thx for sharing it here.
