  • Add pepper and onions, tomato sauce, oregano, parsley, nutmeg, garlic powder, sugar, and Splenda. Simmer for 1 hour. Meanwhile, continue with next 3 steps.
  • Cook spinach according to directions, drain well and let cool a little.
  • Cook lasagna according to package directions, drain. (Separate noodles and lay out flat on wax paper or aluminum foil to keep pieces from sticking together as they cool.).
  • Combine ricotta, romano, 1.5 cups of the mozzarella, egg substitute, spinach, salt and pepper for filling.
  • In a 13"x9" baking pan, pour a thin layer of sauce to cover the bottom. Arrange 3-4 pieces (1/3 box) of lasagna lengthwise over sauce. Spread 1/3 cheese filling over noodles, then another layer of sauce. Repeat layers of lasagna, filling and meat sauce.

  • Remove aluminum foil, sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella. Bake uncovered about 10 minutes longer or until lightly browned.
  • Allow to stand for about 10 minutes before cutting for easier handling.
