   1. Cook noodles in boiling water. Drain and rinse in
   cold water. Set aside. Combine water, onion and garlic
   in a 1 1/2 quart microwave-safe bowl.
   
   2. Microwave (high), uncovered, 3-3 1/2 minutes or
   until tender, stirring once. Stir in tomato sauce and
   paste, water, bouillon, sugar, basil, oregano and
   pepper. Cover with plastic wrap.
   
   3. Microwave (high) 8-9 minutes or until mixture boils
   several minutes, stirring once. Set aside.
   
   4. Wash spinach and remove large stems. Place in 2
   quart microwave bowl. Cover with plastic wrap.
   
   5. Microwave (high) 3 1/2-4 minutes or until steaming
   hot. Drain well by pressing leaves to drain juices.
   Chop coarsely. Stir in cottage cheese and eggs.
   
   6. To assemble, layer half the noodles in a 12x8
   baking dish. Top with 1/2 the sauce mixture, 1.5 cups
   mozzarella cheese, half the spinach mixture, rest of
   the noodles, rest of the spinach, rest of cheese, rest
   of sauce. Cover with waxed paper.
   
   7. Microwave (high) 5 minutes. Then microwave
   (medium-high, 70%) 12-15 minutes or until heated in
   center (150-160 degrees). Remove waxed paper. Sprinkle
   with Parmesan cheese.
   
   8. Microwave (high) uncovered 3-4 minutes or until
   cheese is melted. Let stand 5-10 minutes before
   cutting.
   
   ** Frozen chopped spinach can be substituted for
   fresh. Use a 10 oz package and microwave in package 3
   1/2 - 4 1/2 minutes or until thawed. Omit cooking in

   Last time I made this, I used prepared spaghetti
   sauce. Works just fine. I used about 2 1/2 cups.
