250 g medium egg noodles
3 1/2 cups your favorite tomato pasta sauce
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 bunch fresh spinach, washed, trimmed, and chopped
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp basil
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
First, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente then drain well.
Meanwhile, wilt the spinach in a pan over medium heat, tossing and moving around. Allow cooling before squeezing out the moisture and chopping more thoroughly. In a medium bowl, stir together with the ricotta, egg, garlic, ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, ½ cup mozzarella, pepper, and basil.
Spoon half of the pasta sauce into a shallow 2-liter dish. Layer the pasta on top and then spoon the cheese mixture over the noodles. It will seem very thin, which is fine. Spread it, so it mostly covers the noodles. Pour the remaining sauce over, smooth the top, and then sprinkle the remaining cheese on.
Bake uncovered for about 20-25 minutes until warmed through, the cheese is melted, and casserole bubbly. Serve and enjoy!
