Cook noodles according to instructions on package. Steam spinach until tender; cool and drain VERY WELL and chop. (squeezing it through cheese cloth works well). Add cottage cheese, parmesan, nutmeg, 1/2 the mozzarella cheese and the salt and pepper. Spoon a couple of tablespoons onto a cooked lasagna noodle, spread spinach mixture evenly and roll up. Place each roll, seam down, into a baking dish. Pour Spaghetti sauce over the spinach rolls and top with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake until heated through and cheese is melted and bubbling.
