i've made this a few times. the first time was quite a while ago and i made them in rollups and everyone liked them a lot. this last time (w/ pictures) i thought the recipe was pretty close to my stuffed shells recipe that i thought i'd make them into shells instead.
here's the recipe that comes from my famous hamburger cookbook:
1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 (14 oz.) jar of tomato pasta sauce
3/4 c. ricotta cheese
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
5 oz (1 1/4 c) shredded mozzarella cheese
4 (8X2 1/2 in) frozen precooked lasagna noodles, thawed (anwat note: i couldn't ever find these in the store. i just bought lasagna noodles and cooked them... probably didn't take much longer than it would to unthaw noodles!)
1 c. fresh baby spinach leaves, washed with stems removed
1. heat oven to 350 degrees. in med. skillet, cook ground beef and onion over med-hi heat until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. drain. stir in /2 c. of the pasta sauce. remove skillet from heat. (anwat note: cook the noodles as per directions on the back of the package.)
5. bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly and thoroughly heated. remove foil; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 c. mozzarella cheese. bake an additional 2-4 minutes or until cheese is melted. let stand 5 min. before serving.
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
