In our efforts to keep not only ourselves, but the rest of the world healthy in a tasty way, we'll be sharing our recipes with you on this site. Check back often to see what's for supper!

A Crosby family recipe made for us by Tim's brother as a special treat when he came to visit!

1 pound Italian sausage

1/2 sweet onion

1/2 large red bell pepper

1/2 large green bell pepper

1 pound mushrooms

8 ounces spinach

3 12 ounce cans tomatoes (1 sauce, 2 chopped)

1 1/2 pounds small curd cottage cheese

1/2 pound mozzarella (grated or shredded)

chopped garlic to taste

Italian spices to taste

Sauté sausage, then add chopped bell peppers, onions and mushrooms. Add to sauce and reduce for one hour.

Cook one package of lasagna noodles until al dente, drain.

Layer spinach (washed but uncooked), extra mushrooms, extra bell peppers, cottage cheese, mozzarella, sauce - repeat, ending with a layer of sauce.

Bake at 325 for approx. 40-45 minutes until nice and hot. You can cover with foil until the final 10 minutes if you are worried about it getting too dark on top. If you have room left in the pan you can also sprinkle extra cheese on top during those final ten minutes. (This go around made enough for two pans, but it will depend on how ambitious and generous you get with your ingredients)

We had garlic bread and salad with this, and ice cream sandwiches for dessert!
