Cooking with Mom - Spinach Lasagna

I finally was allowed to cook a meal for my parents while they were here, so Mom and I put together a spinach lasagna recipe that I got from a dear friend in St. Augustine. Martha Shinn, youth ministry professor extraordinaire, made this lasagna for a bunch of single girls in Young Life one Valentine's Day. It was amazing. So, I've made it ever since. Dad loved it - said he could have eaten the whole pan - that's great because he's lost so much weight! Will power!

Spinach Lasagna
1 32 oz jar spaghetti sauce (I use prego)
1 cup water
2 egg whites
1 box frozen spinach, thawed and very well drained
1 16 oz container red-fat small curd cottage cheese
1/3 cup grated Romano cheese
pepper to taste
8 oz lasagna noodles
1 package 2% grated mozz cheese
Mix sauce and water - set aside. Mix the rest (through the pepper). In 9x13 layer in starting with sauce - then noodles - then spinach - repeat. Top with sauce. Refrigerate overnight. Top with mozz cheese and some parm/romano, etc. Bake covered for 1 hour at 375. I take the lid off with about 10 minutes left to brown the cheese a little more. Fantastic! Serve with a salad and bread!
