What's for Dinner? Spinach Lasagna

12 lasagna noodles
14 ozs. marinara sauce
6 ounces ricotta cheese
4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1 10 oz. package of frozen spinach (or fresh spinach)
1 Tbs. oil
half a white onion, diced

1)Cook noodles until al dente as directed on package. 
2)Meanwhile, place oil in a pan and heat on low. Add diced onion and saute until onion is tender and clear. Add thawed spinach and saute 4-5 minutes.
3)Cover the bottom of a 2 quart rectangular baking dish (I like pyrex) with some of the marinara sauce. Layer 3 noodles on top of it. 
4)Spread half the ricotta cheese over the noodles. Layer the spinach on top of the ricotta and cover with three noodles.
5)Pour more of the marinara over the noodles. Sprinkle half the mozzarella on top of the sauce. Cover with three noodles
6)Spread remainder of ricotta over noodles. Sprinkle remainder of mozzarella on top of ricotta. Top with three remaining noodles. Pour sauce over the noodles.
7) Bake at 350 for twenty minutes. (If you prefer super crispy noodles you can bake for longer).
