Lazy Lasagna Recipe

- Preheat an oven to 180 °C (350°F)
- Heat a frypan up, so it’s hot.
- Add your ground beef and cook until browned.
- Add one jar of spaghetti sauce of your choosing and the spinach.
- In a deep oven, dish add a tiny bit of the sauce. (This will help stop the sheets from burning to the bottom)

- Repeat from step 5 until you’re out of either lasagne sheets or sauce
- Top with leftover cheese.
- Place in oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.

- If you’re using dry sheets, then you should par cook them to help speed to the cooking process up for your lazy lasagna, to do this do the following.
1. Get a deep baking dish and fill with boiling water.
2. Put sheets in so there is only one layer and wait until they have softened.
3. Remove from the water and brush with oil to prevent them from sticking together.
4. Repeat until you have enough sheets. (You may need to replace the water with boiling water again)
- Miss the béchamel? My best suggestion would buy from the supermarket or if you have time, then make it from scratch.
- This lazy day lasagna is also perfect for reheating. Cook it up, and it will last in your fridge for a few days and also still retain that awesome flavor and feel as it was when it was baked fresh!
