- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic minced

MethodIn large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion and garlic until softened, about 6 minutes. Add spinach; cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

Spread 1 cup of the tomato sauce in 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish; top with 1 regular and 1 halved lasagna sheet. Layer with one-third of the spinach mixture, one-third of the cheese mixture and 3/4 cup of the tomato sauce. Repeat twice.
