3 lbs. ground beef
2 lbs. Part-Skim Ricotta Cheese
1 cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese
1 – 10 oz. package frozen chopped spinach
5 cloves garlic – chopped
2 ½ cups milk
2 cups Original Bisquick
Quick Marinara Sauce:
1 – 29 oz. can crushed tomatoes
5 cloves of garlic – chopped
1 medium yellow onion – sliced
Dashes of fresh ground black pepper
Dashes of sea salt
Pinch of sugar
Olive oil – for drizzling
Prepare the marinara. In a medium sauce pan drizzle a little olive oil and add the garlic and onion. Sauté until the onion is clear. Add the crushed tomatoes and the seasonings. Simmer on low for about 10 minutes.
Preheat Oven 350 degrees:
In a large frying pan drizzle a little olive oil and cook the beef and drain.
In a smaller frying pan drizzle a little olive oil, add the chopped garlic and sauté until the garlic is slightly golden. Add the chopped spinach and sauté until the spinach is cooked. Combine the spinach with the cooked chopped meat.
Place the ricotta cheese in a bowl and add about a ½ cup of grated Romano cheese and two or three tablespoons of marinara sauce, a tsp. of sugar and mix.
In a medium sized bowl add the milk, eggs, Bisquick and mix.
Grease the bottom of a large baking dish. Spread the spinach and beef combo in the baking dish. Top with the ricotta cheese mixture and then the marinara sauce. Pour the Bisquick the marinara sauce and finish off with the shredded mozzarella cheese.
Bake about 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. This meal serves about 8 people.
This is well worth the time to make. It will bring smiles to the faces you love.
Enjoy with Love,
