3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 15 oz container ricotta cheese
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons minced garlic
3 cups marinara-style pasta sauce
9 no-boil lasagna noodles
2 cans (15 ounces) spinach, well drained
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, cracked

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Combine 2 cups of mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese and garlic, chopped parsley and red and black pepper. Set aside.

In a 9×13 inch baking dish pour 3/4 cup marinara sauce. Place 3 pieces of noboil lasagna on the sauce, covering with another 1/2 cup of the sauce.

Layer with half of the spinach, then a layer spreading half of the cheese mixture over the spinach. Repeat layers. Finish with 3 more lasagna strips and cover with remaining sauce.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for one hour. Uncover and top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese during last 15 minutes of baking.

Allow to sit 10 minutes before serving.
