I made as directed except, I doubled the amount of filling and sauce and omitted the nutmeg because I thought I had some, but apparently did not. Also, since I don't have a steamer insert, I just rinsed the spinach well and put it in a large pot with a lid for about 3 minutes on high heat and squeezed the water out before adding to filling. I think the lasagna would definitely be a bit flat and sad with the amount of filling the recipe calls for, though it might be a decent option for those looking to cut calories. With the extra filling and sauce, it was quite tasty and easy to make. I didn't like it as well as my favorite traditional lasagna, but while this isn't exactly "diet food" it still is more diet friendly than the version I normally make that has much more cheese, in addition to all the meat. My dad who thinks food isn't worth eating if there's nothing that used to have a face in it, rated it as "better than I expected." Not the recipe I'd pull out for company, but a good solid option for when I want something a bit different. Next time I make it, I will try the nutmeg, add some salt and pepper to the spinach directly and make sure I taste the filling for seasoning before I add the egg.
