Tomato, Spiniach, and Pepper Lasagna

This meal was so good that there wasn't even any left to take a picture of. 

Jokes.

The leftovers are in the fridge and I've battling the lazies at this time.  So let's move on.

This meal was good, I made it on Sunday afternoon to split up and carry for my lunch to work.  I've been impressed thus far.  Pair with a little side salad? Done.

24 oz store bought marinara sauce

6 dry lasagna noodles
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, water packed, cut into strips
5 oz fresh spinach

Preheat oven to 350.

In a small pot, combine marinara sauce and tomatoes; set over low heat and simmer for 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend.

In a large bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese, stir to combine.  Stir in egg substitute, salt, pepper, and oregano.

In a 9 x 13 baking dish, layer as follows:
