4Assemble lasagna in a 9" x 13" pan starting with 1/4 of the tomato sauce, then 1/3 of the eggplant and 1/3 of the ricotta mixture.

5Repeat this for the next layer. Use the rest of the eggplant, and all the spinach and one third of the mozzarella as the next layer.

6Next, top with ricotta mix, the remaining tomato sauce, basil and oregano.
