  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain. Bring 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan, and cook the spinach 4 to 6 minutes, until tender.
  3. Place the cooked pasta in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and oil. Toss the pasta with the cooked spinach, egg mixture, and bread crumbs.
  4. Cover the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with 1/3 of the pasta sauce. Pour half of the pasta mixture into the baking dish, and cover with another 1/3 of the pasta sauce. Sprinkle with half of the Cheddar cheese and half of the mozzarella. Layer with remaining pasta mixture, and top with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the rest of the Cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.
  5. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until bubbly and lightly browned.

This recipe was very good with the changes that I made. I first ommitted the egg and breadcrumbs, cause that just seemed kinda weird. I sauteed the spinach(water all squeezed out) with onion, g...

This is a nice recipe to use as a base to be creative. I took another reviewers advice and used fresh spinach I got at the famers market, sauted it in olive oil, minced garlic salt and pepper. ...

Super easy and delicious- I agree with another reviewer's recommendation: use only 1 tb of oil with rest as skim milk - you don't miss the extra oil. Used Healthy Choice garlic Lover's sauce and...

This was extremely tasty! Like an easier version of stuffed shells. To make the recipe a little less fattening, we added only 1 tablespoon of oil and filled the rest of the 1/4 cup in the reci...

My husband loves meat - but when I cooked this recipe he didn't even notice there was no meat. So easy to prepare, so delicious, I even froze the leftovers and they were great a week later. Def...

This casserole ended up tasting much more "Italian" than I had expected--kind of like a meatless lasagna. But my husband and I really liked it. I would add at least 50% more cheese. This cass...
