  • 1 packages - 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and completely drained
  • 1 containers - 15 oz. fat-free ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cups - grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 - egg
  • 1/2 teaspoons - minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoons - dried Italian seasoning
  • - salt and fresh pepper

  • 32 ounces - tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce

  • Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Make sure you drain the spinach well. Combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, egg, garlic, Italian seasoning, chicken (if using), and salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour about 1 cup sauce on the bottom of a 9-x-13-inch baking dish.
