Tips

If you choose not to use oven ready noodles, add 14.5-ounces of tomato sauce, and omit 1 can of the tomatoes (to make for a thicker sauce).


Directions

Saute onions and garlic in oil until cooked but not brown. Add mushrooms, peppers, celery, zucchini, carrots, and green beans.

Thaw the spinach and drain the juice into the sauce pot. Set the spinach aside.

Add tomatoes, tomato soup, chilli peppers, and Italian seasoning. Cover and simmer on low for 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes. When the sauce is cooked measure 6 cups. If the sauce has cooked down too much, add water to thin.

In a food processor, blend the spinach, eggs, cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, nutmeg, basil, and pepper.

Layer the lasagnas as follows:
1 cup sauce
3 noodles (break corners for a better fit)
1 cup sauce
cup mozerella cheese
3 noodles
half the cottage cheese & spinach mixture (on each lasagna)
cup mozerella cheese
3 noodles
1 cup sauce

Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes. Add -cup mozerella cheese to the top. Bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, until bubbly.

Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes before serving.
