Ingredients

    1 medium eggplant (about 3/4 pound), cubed
    table salt
    2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    salt and pepper
    1 26-oz jar pasta sauce, tomato-basil variety
    2 8-oz cans no-salt-added tomato sauce
    2 tbsp finely chopped fresh basil (optional)
    9 oven-ready lasagna noodles
    2 10-oz packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well

Directions

Sprinkle the eggplant with table salt and set in a colander to drain for 30 minutes. Rinse the eggplant under cold-running water and drain well between paper towels.

Preahet the oven to 375. Lightly oil a 13x9 in. baking dish and set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet with lid, heat 1 tbsp oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-5 minutes. Add eggplant, salt, and pepper, toss well to combine. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until the eggplant is just tender, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine pasta sauce, tomato sauce, basil, and 1 tbsp oil. Spread 1/4 of the sauce (about 1 cup) i nthe bottom of the dish. Arrange 3 noodles crosswise over sauce, leaving equal space around the noodles so they don't overlap or touch the sides of the dish. Arrange one-third of the eggplant over the noodles. Arrange one-third of the spinach over the eggplant. Continue with sauce, eggplant, and noodles twice, ending with sauce. Cover tightly with oiled foil and bake for 1 hour, until the eggplant is very tender. Let stand 10 minutes.
