This Spinach and Artichoke Lasagna is a vegetarian meal, and it can be gluten free if using gluten free oven ready noodles like I did! You can experiment with different types of cheeses and toppings as well! Ricotta or cottage cheese can be used interchangeably here. Chicken would also taste good if making this a non-vegetarian dish. I know some people really like meat, so that could be an option if you want. I prefer ricotta though because of the unique texture. This recipe makes a 9x13 baking dish and feeds about 8 people.

- start layering-I put marinara sauce down first, then noodles, spinach, cheese/artichoke mixture, and finally provolone and feta. Then I repeated this process beginning with the marinara sauce until all of the ingredients are used up.

Variations of this spinach and artichoke lasagna recipe:
- add meat-this is a meatless lasagna recipe, but some people prefer meat in theirs! If you or someone you are cooking for desires meat, baked chicken breast, browned hamburger, or cooked sausage would be quite tasty!
- add more veggies-mushrooms would be a great add to spinach and artichoke lasagna if you are interested in adding more nutrition to your pasta. Other vegetables you can add are olives, banana peppers, kale, etc.
- different sauce-marinara is what the recipe calls for, but you can also use alfredo sauce if you would like! Pesto can also be a great substitute.
- more spinach-in my opinion, you can never have too much spinach!
- extra cheese-you can add more cheese if you would like! I don't like to add too much cheese or it can get kind of expensive. If you wallet allows it, definitely do it!
- omit feta and/or provolone-feta and provolone are not 100% necessary in this recipe! They can be substituted with any other white cheese you have on hand like pepper jack or white cheddar.
- separate artichokes from cheese-you do not have to add artichokes to the cheese mixture if you do not want to. It would taste just as good sprinkling the artichokes on as it would adding them to the cheese mixture.
- omit artichokes-you can omit the artichokes if you wish!
How to store meatless lasagna:
- fridge-store this spinach lasagna recipe in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week
- freezer-this spinach and artichoke lasagna recipe can be a freezer meal! Make according to directions, and let cool after baking. Once cool, put a lid on it and freeze. To reheat, bake at 400 degrees for about an hour or until heated throughout. You can also put extra sauce on it after baking since sometimes the liquid from the sauce gets evaporated out.
