- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 medium eggplant, diced
- 2 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
- 1 64-ounce jar pre-made tomato sauce
- 1 pound lasagna noodles (uncooked)
First, preheat the oven to 375 F.
Heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Sautee the garlic for two to three minutes, then add in the diced eggplant and stir. Cover the frying pan and cook until the eggplant is just tender, about 5 to 7 more minutes.
Next, cover the bottom of a 9x12 inch baking pan with 2 cups of the tomato sauce, then cover the tomato sauce with a layer of 4 or 5 of the uncooked noodles. Cover this layer of noodles with a thin layer of sauce, then add the cooked eggplant and another thin layer of sauce. Add another layer of noodles followed by a thin layer of sauce, then the spinach and another thin layer of sauce. Add the remaining noodles and sauce.
Cover tightly with foil and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Noodles are fully cooked and soft enough when they can be easily pierced with a fork.
