New-Tradition Lasagna with Spinach Noodles

Yield 9 servings
The homemade sauce and noodles are what make this lasagna so tasty, but you can substitute prepackaged spinach lasagna noodles and a good bottled low-fat marinara sauce, if you prefer. The noodle recipe makes more than you'll need in case some fall apart. You can make the sauce in advance and store it in airtight container; freeze up to two months or refrigerate up to three days.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 tablespoon grated whole nutmeg
  • 1 (15-ounce) carton fat-free ricotta cheese
  • 6 cups Bill's Marinara Sauce
  • Cooking spray
  • 9 cooked Homemade Spinach Lasagna Noodles
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil, divided
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
