Two Sauce Lasagna -- posted by Jessica

This is a really delicious recipe I found on the Classico website. I had a bunch of different Classico pasta sauces in my pantry from a really good sale at the grocery store a few months back so I was looking at their site for some ideas on new recipes to try with them and came across this lasagna recipe. I love lasagna and we always have lasagna for Christmas Eve dinner so I decided to try this one. Verdict: It's a keeper! :)

Here is the recipe from the Classico site; note: my lasagna did not look as pretty as the one in their pic. but it was still tasty! I used a different red Classico sauce (caramelized onion I think) and I stirred the spinach into the red sauce rather than having it as a separate layer.
