I love veggie based lasagna recipes. For the comment about not sweating your egglpant, as a countrygirl, I can tell you, eggplant tends to be a bit bitter if you don't sweat it. I would definitely not skip this step. The comments about bitterness are likely not just attributed to the frozen spinach but also to not properly prepping the eggplant.
Where I work there are several folks who loath bell pepper, so to solve this problem, I substitute either anaheim or pablano pepper anywhere bell pepper is called for. Pablano is a darker green than bell, anaheim is the same color. Both have a mild pepper flavor but not a lot of heat. Either will give you the color and an added kick of flavor.
Add a bit of garlic powder or garlic salt to the veggie mixture and spinach mixture and add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of salt to the ricotta mixture to enhance the overall flavor of the dish. For my personal preference I also add additional italian spices to the vegetable mixture, only you know your tastes so adjust accordingly.
