Kosher salt
oz lasagna noodles (about 12)
Tbsp olive oil, plus more for tossing and greasing the baking dish
lbs bulk breakfast sausage, thawed
bunch scallions, whites cut into ½" pieces and greens thinly sliced
cup all-purpose flour
cups whole milk
Freshly ground black pepper
tsp freshly grated nutmeg
cups shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
oz white Cheddar, shredded
cup grated Parmesan
2 10-oz
packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and excess liquid squeezed out
cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped


Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles, and cook according to package directions. Strain into a colander, and toss with oil. Drape the noodles over and around the side of the colander to cool.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and scallion whites, and cook, stirring and breaking the meat up into bite-size pieces (not crumbs), until the sausage is browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the cooked sausage, and stir until it is completely absorbed. Add 1/2 the milk, and stir until it starts to thicken. Stir in the remaining milk, bring to a simmer and stir until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Stir in 2 teaspoons salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper and the nutmeg. Remove the sauce from the heat, and let cool.

Step 3

Mix together the mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan in a medium bowl.

Step 4

Oil a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Spread about 4 tablespoons of the sauce (without big pieces of sausage) over the bottom. Arrange 4 slightly overlapping noodles to fully cover the bottom of the dish. Spread 1/3 of the remaining sauce over the noodles. Spread 1/2 the spinach in an even layer. Sprinkle with about 1/3 of the scallion greens, 1/4 teaspoon salt, a few grinds of pepper and 1/3 of the cheese mixture. Continue layering with 4 more noodles, 1/2 of the remaining sauce, the remaining spinach, 1/2 of the remaining scallion greens, 1/4 teaspoon salt, a few grinds of pepper and 1/2 of the remaining cheese. Finish the lasagna with the remaining noodles, sauce and cheese. Cover the top with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. Do the same with the remaining scallion greens.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Remove the plastic wrap from the baking dish, and cover with foil. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 45 minutes. Uncover the dish, and continue to bake until the lasagna is slightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Top with the remaining scallions, the parsley and a sprinkle of black pepper. Let sit for at least 15 minutes, then slice and serve.
