6. Dollop half of spinach mixture on top of matzo. Spoon half of ricotta cheese mixture over spinach and sprinkle with a third of mozzarella cheese. Spoon sauce over cheese.

7. Soak 2 more matzo sheets and repeat layering. Soak final matzo sheets and place on top. Add remaining mozzarella cheese and sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking 15 to 20 minutes more or until cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.

8. Allow lasagna to sit for 15 minutes to set before serving.
