Spinach and Red Pepper Lasagna

My guys raved about this one. It is similar to my other cream cheese lasagna, but omits the Dreamfield's noodles and replaces them with pepper strips and spinach.

It it rich and creamy with cream cheese added. It has the fabulous tastes of red bell pepper and spinach--two veggies that happen to be really good for you! Try it.

I used Jack cheese because that is what we had on hand. Mozzarella would be nice too. I think this would freeze nicely, but I don't think I will get a chance to find out. At least not tonight.

I added extra spinach for the side salad, and threw on a few grape tomatoes to complete the red, white and green theme. MMMmmm. Let me know what you think. No one is leaving comments for me lately, and I am feeling a little lost in cyberspace. Anyone out there?

I made this recipe today, and it was WONDERFUL! Hubby didn't even think to complain that there were no "real" lasagna noodles in it. Delicious, thank you. :-)

I like the idea for using cream cheese. Don't get discouraged, I am reading your posts regularly, I just got a bit behind on leaving comments. Please keep it up. I love all you're recipes.

Thanks Arthur. I love to know when you guys are out there. It really makes a difference when I decide whether or not to post one of our dinners. The more you comment, the more motivated I am!

Hi Lisa,

I made this tonight and had some questions. I used a regular loaf pan, not sure of the size, and it rose to about 1"-1 1/2" with the kind of crunchy. The inside was pretty dark yet moist. It looked and smelled great but when I tasted it, it was extremely dense to the point that I had to wash it down with some almond milk. Would using almond butter make it lighter or did I miss something here?
