Spinach Lasagna

(Modified from Eleanor Shimeall's "Eleanor's Solar Cookbook"
Lasagna noodles - uncooked
1 quart jar of pasta sauce
10 oz frozen chopped spinach - thawed and drained
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan
2 eggs - beaten
12 oz mozzarella, sliced

Filling - combine the spinach, eggs, ricotta,

Layering
Cover the bottom of the baking pan (8x8 or 9" round) with sauce
layer of uncooked lasagna noodles
layer of sliced Mozarrella
layer of sauce
layer of uncooked lasagna noodles
layer of spinach filling - use it all
layer of sauce
layer of sliced Mozarrella
layer of uncooked lasagna noodles
last of the sauce
layer of grated parmesan

I make this in a 9 inch cake pan and cover it with a 9 inch pie plate.
For a square baking pan cover it first with foil - shiny side down -
then with a second layer of foil which you have painted black using a
non toxic when dry paint. Or  you can invert a second 8x8 baking pan
for a cover.
