Spinach Lasagna using Magic Mix

I Love This Spinach Lasagna

To learn to use your food storage, you have to just substitute items in your favorite recipe.  I always liked this Spinach Lasagna recipe because it didn't use ricotta cheese.  My family doesn't like ricotta cheese.  I hadn't made this recipe in years and wanted to try it using Magic Mix.  I have to say that I now LOVE this recipe!
 (Don't you love my Hercules plate?)

What is Magic Mix?  I first learned about Magic Mix from a blog that I follow.  It is a mixture of flour, powdered milk and butter.  You can use it to make a variety of things.  My favorite is Chocolate Pudding, or anything that calls for a white or alfredo type sauce.  Here is the recipe from her book "I Can't Believe It's Food Storage"


2 1/3 C. Powdered Milk
1 C. All Purpose Flour (Yes, use All Purpose)
1 C. (2 sticks) Margarine (***HAS TO BE REAL MARGARINE, NOT SPREAD***) or Butter, at room temperature

Combine ingredients in a mixer or food processor until it resembles cornmeal.  Store in an air tight container in the refridgerator.   I have used THRIVE Butter Powder before.  The only difference I noticed was that I had to use a stick blender to get a good smooth mixture.  However, when using the Butter Powder you don't have to refridgerate it.

Here is her book.  I refer to it several times a week!  It's a must have for newbies in food storage.

On to the Lasagna recipe!

1lb ground turkey or ground beef
1/4lb fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 T minced garlic
1 can diced tomatoes
1T italian seasonings
1 cup grated parmeasen cheese
salt and pepper to taste
9 cooked lasagna noodles
2 C shredded mozzarella cheese
1 package (10oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 1/3 C Magic Mix
2 cups water

For meat sauce, brown ground turkey in skillet over medium heat.  (If using ground beef, drain.) Add mushrooms, onions and minced garlic. Cook until onion is tender.  Add can of diced tomatoes, half a can of water, italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.  Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently.

For cheese sauce, bring 2 cups of water to boil.  Wisk in Magic Mix powder a little at a time, whisking until fully blended.  Add the parmesean cheese and simmer about 5 minutes or until thickened.  Stir frequently.

Spray 12x8 inch baking dish with non-stick spray, such as Pam.   Place 3 lasagna noodles in dish.  Spoon meat mixture over noodles.  Spoon 1/2 of the cheese sauce on top of the meat mixture.  Place 3 more noodles on top.  Layer spinach on top of noodles and top with remaining cheese sauce.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese on top of cheese sauce.  Place remaining 3 noodles on top.  Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese on top.

Bake uncovered in 350 degree oven 40 minutes or until top is golden and edges are bubbly.  Let stand at least 10 minutes before serving.  YUM!!
