Cheesy Spinach Lasagna

This is wonderful. Even Laura Grace eats it. Enough said.

9 uncooked lasagna noodles
2 cups shredded mozarella cheese
1 16 oz. container fat free ricotta cheese
1 10 oz. pkg. frozen spinach (chopped, thawed, and drained)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 (3 oz.) pkg. Canadian Bacon, chopped. I also use 4-6 pieces turkey bacon.
1/2 small onion chopped-I use less.
1 26 oz. pasta sauce

Cook pasta and set aside.Stir together 1 1/2 cups mozarella cheese, ricotta cheese, and next 5 ingredients.Saute chopped bacon and diced onion in a skillet coated with cooking spray over med. heat 5 to 6 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir into cheese mixture.Spread 1/2 cup pasta sauce on bottom of 11x7 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Layer with 3 noodles and 1/2 cup pasta sauce; top with half of cheese mixture. Repeat layers once, ending with remaining cheese mixture. Top with remaining 3 noodles and remaining pasta sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, top with remaining mozarella. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts, let stand 5 minutes.
