- 2 cup of mozzarella cheese
- 4 fresh tomatoes
- ½ teaspoon of dehydrated oregano

First, you need to cook the lasagna sheet. Put the lasagna sheet into a pan with salted boiling water in it. Cook the lasagna for about 10 minutes until it is al dente. After it is cooked, remove from the water and put it into a tray. Set it aside.
Chop the onion and mince the garlic. After that, slice the eggplants and the tomato. Set them aside.
Now, we are going to make the sauce. Heat a non-skillet pan and then drizzle olive oil on it. Then, add the chopped onions and stir it well. When the onions are softer, add the minced garlic. Stir until the garlic is completely mixed with the onions. After that, add the spinach and the meatless sauce. Stir it well. Season the sauce with dehydrated oregano, dehydrated parsley, salt, and pepper. Cook until the sauce thickens. After it is all cooked, turn off the heat.
Now, it is time to assemble the lasagna. But before that, preheat your oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit. Then, grab a lasagna pan and grease the pan with oil or spray it with non-stick spray. Cover the base of the pan with lasagna sheet. Then, add the sauce. After the sauce, start lining the eggplant slice. After the eggplant, sprinkle cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese until they cover the entire surface of the lasagna. After the cheddar and mozzarella cheese, layer the tomato slices. Repeat the layering until the pan is full. On the top of the last layer, sprinkle a lot of mozzarella cheese.
Wrap the lasagna pan with kitchen foil and put the lasagna pan into the oven for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove the kitchen foil and put it back into the oven for another 5 minutes. Serve hot.
