  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add 1 tsp olive oil.
  3. Add the shallot to the skillet; cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 1-2 minutes.
  4. Roughly chop the spinach, add to the skillet with the shallot. Cook, stirring frequently, until spinach has wilted, 2-3 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and salt.
  6. Grate the Parmesan and mozzarella.
  7. In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, egg, Parmesan, and half of the mozzarella. Add the spinach mixture to the bowl and stir to combine.
  8. Coat the bottom of a small baking dish or loaf pan with tomato sauce. Add one lasagna noodle on top of the sauce. Add ¼ cup of sauce, one-third of the spinach mixture, and a noodle. Repeat this step twice more until you have formed three layers. Top with a final noodle, the rest of the sauce, and the other half of the mozzarella cheese.
  9. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 5 minutes.
