This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is a Polenta Lasagna with Spinach. Here’s a different and healthier version of Lasagna. Made with Polenta, Spinach, Ricotta Cheese, Mozzarella Cheese, Parmesan Cheese, and more! You can find this recipe from one of my favorite recipe sites, the CooksRecipes website. The Cooks site has a huge selection of recipes to please all tastes, diets, and cuisines. Check it out today! Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Polenta Lasagna with Spinach

Traditional lasagna noodles are replaced with slices of firm polenta layered with a spinach-ricotta cheese mixture and an Italian tomato sauce.

Recipe Ingredients:
Polenta:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, very finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
7 cups vegetable stock
2 cups instant polenta (13.2 ounce box)
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Tomato Sauce:
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 teaspoon dry oregano leaves
1 teaspoon dry basil leaves
Salt to taste

Spinach-Ricotta Filling:
2 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 (15-ounce) containers low-fat ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Pinch of nutmeg

4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese – divided use
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese – divided use

Cooking Directions:
1 – Lightly spray a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
2 – For Polenta: In a large saucepan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and sauté 1 minute more, making sure it doesn’t brown. Add salt and stock and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat.
3 – In a thin stream very slowly add the polenta stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly to be sure it doesn’t stick, until it’s thick and creamy. Stir in 3 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese.
4 – Pour polenta into the prepared baking dish, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula if necessary. Let polenta rest for at least 2 hours. (Can be made up to 3 days ahead however.)
5 – For Tomato Sauce: Heat oil in a wide frying pan over medium heat; add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, wine, oregano and basil. Bring to a simmer; then simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt. Makes about 4 cups sauce.
6 – For Spinach-Ricotta Filling: In a medium bowl combine spinach, ricotta, egg and Parmesan, mixing well. Season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
7 – Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
8 – Invert the polenta onto a cutting surface. Set the dish aside to use again. Cut the polenta rectangle in half to make 2 rectangles each measuring 9×6 1/2-inches. Slice each rectangle lengthwise in half again, using a long piece of dental floss or a serrated knife to make the job easiest, creating 4 layers (each 9×6 1/2-inches).
9 – Spoon prepared tomato sauce evenly on the bottom of the 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Place two of the polenta pieces in the dish to cover the bottom. Spoon half of the spinach ricotta mixture over the polenta, using the back of a spoon to spread it out, and then sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Spoon 2 cups of sauce over cheese.
10 – Top with remaining polenta pieces and finish with remaining cheese.
11 – Place the lasagna dish on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes.
Makes 8 servings.

Tip: To prepare in advance the lasagna can be assembled and held up to 24 hours before baking. To cook, remove lasagna from refrigerator 1 hour before baking then cook as recipe directs.

Check it out today. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Chiles Relleños with Cheese, Dried Apricots, Pecans and Guajillo Chile Sauce
This outstanding recipe for chiles relleños—stuffed with two types of cheese, dried apricots, raisins, and toasted pecans—served with a spicy guajillo chile sauce, was developed by Chef Ben Berryhill.

Recipe Ingredients:
Chiles and Filling:
Oil for coating chiles
24 each large poblano chiles
16 ounces (about 4 cups) Wisconsin Jack cheese, grated
16 ounces (about 4 cups) Wisconsin Queso Blanco, grated
8 ounces (about. 1 1/2 cups) dried apricots, cut into very small cubes
8 ounces (about 1 1/2 cups) California raisins
8 ounces (about 1 cup) pecans, lightly toasted and coarsely chopped

Guajillo Chile Sauce:
2 pounds (about 16) ripe Roma tomatoes
2 pounds (about 32) tomatillos, husks removed
2 each large white onions, peeled and cut into eighths
12 garlic cloves, peeled
2 ounces (about 8) guajillo chiles or dried New Mexico red chiles, stemmed and seeded
2 cups water
1/2 cups cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon and teaspoon brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons salt

Garnishes:
As needed (about 3/4 cup) sour cream or crème fraîche
As needed (about 1/2 bunch) cilantro sprigs

Cooking Directions:
1 – For Chiles: Lightly oil the poblano chiles. Roast the chiles over an open flame or under a hot broiler until the skins are blistered and charred. Allow to cool at room temperature. Remove the skins and discard.
2 – With a small knife, make a slit lengthwise down the side of each chile to create a pocket. Gently cut the interior seed pod free from the base of the stem and remove the seeds. Discard the seeds.
3 – For Filling: In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the filling and mix well. Stuff equal portions of the filling into each poblano and set aside.
4 – For Guajillo Sauce: Preheat oven broiler. Combine the tomatoes, tomatillos, onions and garlic cloves on a baking pan just large enough to hold the ingredients in a single layer. Place the pan under the hot broiler and broil until the ingredients are lightly blistered and charred (approximately 15 to 20 minutes), turning the ingredients occasionally. Remove from oven and cool.
5 – In a dry skillet over medium heat, lightly toast the chiles. Transfer to a bowl, cover with water and soak for 15 to 20 minutes or until softened. Drain and discard the water.
6 – In a blender, combine the broiled ingredients with the softened chiles. Add the water and puree to form a coarse sauce (approximately 30 seconds). Transfer the puree to a sauce pan. Heat the sauce to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Keep warm.
7 – Just before serving, add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
8 – For Final Preparation: Lightly charcoal grill or broil the stuffed poblano chiles just until the cheese begins to melt.
9 – Place a pool of guajillo sauce on each of 12 serving plates. Top with 2 chiles. If you wish, spoon additional guajillo sauce over each chile, drizzle with the sour cream or crème fraîche and garnish with cilantro sprigs.
Makes 12 servings.
