Marion Fusca Orazi’s White Lasagna

This was one of Marion ’s “Super Bowl “ party recipes…. many of her friends and family enjoyed this dish on “Super Bowl Sunday”.  

Submitted by her daughter-in-law Michelle Orazi

9 x 13 buttered lasagna pan

1 lb. Lasagna noodles

1 lb. Ground meat

1/2 pound of loose sweet Italian sausage

3 packs frozen spinach/drained well and cooked

3 lbs. Ricotta cheese with chopped parsley

3 cups of graded cheese

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

3 cups of cream sauce made with half and half and butter

Cook and drain the spinach.  Cook the ground meat and Italian sausage in a small amount of olive oil until completely cooked.  Melt 1 stick of butter in 3 cups of half and half to create the cream sauce. 

Cook the lasagna noodles per the instructions on the box.   Lightly grease the lasagna pan with butter. Coat the bottom with a nice layer of the cream sauce.  Make the first layer noodles, the next ricotta, next meat, and next spinach, next grated cheese and repeat with the cream sauce.  Repeat this order until you get to the top of the pan.  Finish with a layer of mozzarella cheese.   

Bake with foil in oven at 350 degrees for 45 min. to 1 hour.

Great with baked chicken….
