                         O.Evans VPRJ01A
    1 1/2  cup           Parmesan cheese -- grated
    1      pound         Spinach lasagna noodles
    1      teaspoon      Salt
    2      pound         Fresh spinach -- stemmed and
      1/2  teaspoon      Pepper
                         washed OR...
      1/4  teaspoon      Nutmeg -- grated
    2      package       (10 oz each) frozen chopped
    1      pound         Mozzarella cheese -- cut into
                         spinach
                         1/2 cubes
    1 1/2  pound         Ricotta cheese
    4      cup           Tomato sauce
    4                    Egg yolks
 
 Cook lasagna noodles and drain.  Cool under cold running water; drain again and
set aside.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large saucepan, cook spinach over
medium-high heat, stirring frequently until leaves are limp 2-3 minutes.  Drain
spinach in a colander and press excess water out with the back of a wooden spoon.
When cool enough to handle, squeeze dry. Turn spinach out onto a cutting surface
and chop fine.
 
   In a large bowl, combine spinach, ricotta, egg yolks, 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese,
 salt, pepper and nutmeg.  Mix with a wooden spoon until well blended. In a
 greased 13x9 inch baking dish, alternately layer spinach pasta with spinach -
 ricotta mixture and mozzarella, making a total four layers. Cover with foil and
 bake 25 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes longer, or until tomato sauce and
 remaining Parmesan cheese on the side.
