Oh my this sandwich is delicious. I wanted to make lasagna but did not want to wait, so I made these instead.
You will need:
for the patties
Ground Beef (1lb)
4 tbsp of italian seasoning
4 tbsp of parmesan
2 tsp salt
2 tsp of pepper
For the topping
4 cups of ricotta
1 cup of shredded cheese
2 cups of cooked spinach
Mix ground beef and seasoning together well. You can add more or less depending on your taste. Form into thin patties and cook on medium heat until done.
With garlic butter at room temperature, spread over bagel or bun of your choice...place in clean skillet or toaster over until toasted.
Mix ricotta, spinach, cheese in another bowl. You can microwave this mixture for about 30-40 seconds to make warm.
Now to assemble. Place burger first, then top with your ricotta mixture, add a nice heaping of marinara sauce and top with another buttered bun.
This is so messy but it is so good!! The perfect alternative to lasagna if you are pressed for time and have a taste for it. Delicious, I tell you!
Should make 3-4 burgers.
