Sausage, Spinach and Ricotta Lasagna

I heart lasagna! Here's an easy tasty recipe

1 jar favourite tomato sauce (I used PC Tomato Basil)
350g ground hot Italian sausage, casings removed
5-6 sliced mushrooms
1 1/2 cups chopped spinach
1 tub ricotta cheese
1 egg
dash nutmeg
fresh basil
9 no-bake lasagna noodles
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Brown sausage in a pot until cooked through. Add mushrooms and saute until softened. Add tomato sauce and basil and simmer for 20 minutes. Add about 1/2 cup water (to help cook the noodles)
2. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, spinach, egg, nutmeg and basil.
3. Layer some sauce on the bottom of a lasagna pan and top with 3 noodles. Spread 1/3 of ricotta mixture across the noodles. Top with sauce and repeat with the rest of the noodles. Top with remaining sauce and sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.
4. Bake at 350 F for about 45 minutes until noodles are tender and cheese is melted and bubbling.
