Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Fresh Mozzarella or Young Cheddar can be used in this recipe.


  1. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Remove sausage to paper towels to drain.
  2. Heat grill to medium-high.
  3. Place 1 noodle onto four greased double-thickness pieces of aluminum foil, each about 16 x 12 inches. Drizzle each noodle with 1 tablespoon water. Layer each with 2 slices mozzarella, salt, pepper and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Sprinkle each with an eighth of the sausage, 1/4 cup tomatoes, 1/2 cup spinach and 1/4 cup cheddar. Season with salt and pepper. Repeat layers. 
  4. Top with remaining noodle; drizzle each with 1 tablespoon water. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar. Fold foil into packets and seal tightly.
  5. Grill packets, covered, over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Flip packets; grill, covered, for 10-15 minutes longer or until noodles are tender. Meanwhile, combine the remaining tomatoes, basil and olive oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Remove packets from the grill. Let stand for 5 minutes. Take care when opening the foil; allow the steam to escape. Serve lasagna with tomato salsa.
