Lasagne with spinach and cheese

Ok , this one has decidedly turned out to be an absolute favorite with everyone. I have tested this recipe several times and noone, I repeat, NO ONE had to be hospitalized after eating it...:) No, come'on, people have loved it, really. The trick is to cook all ingredients somewhat beforehand.
I'll just get on with it-
400 grams spinach (could be more as they shrink when heated - the more the merrier)
250 grams cottage cheese
200 grams white, salty cheese (eg Feta or Bulgarian)
3 eggs
1 small red onion
3 cloves of garlic
2 spoonfuls of olive oil
400 grams canned tomatoe cubes
1 pack of pasta sauce
salt, black pepper,
fresh or dried oregano and basil
150 grams lasagna leafs
150 grams grinded mozarella cheese
1.We cook the spinach in boiled water for a minute or two and then screen it so it wouldn't be soaked with water. We add the cottage cheese and the smashed feta cheese, as well as the eggs. We stir well - i use a kitchen aid -and add salt and pepper.
2. We cook the diced onions with a bit of olive oil, after a minute or two we add the canned onions and the pasta sauce and 1-2 cups of water. We stir and add our spices.
3. We place the lasagne leafs in boiled, -hot- water until they soften up and place them next to one another verically, until they fit in a medium-sized rectangular pattern. We spread the tomato sauce on the lasagne leafs, and add our spinach-cheese mixture on top of it. We sprinkle it with grinded mozarella. We cover the spread with another layer of lasagne leafs, just, this time we lay down 2 leafs horizontally and one vertically. We repeat the procedure all together 3 times, each time spreading the lasagne leafs opposite to the layer below. Our fourth layer of lasagne leafs will be sprinkled with the remaining tomatoe sauce and mozarella.
4. We bake it covered for 35 mins on 180 C and then wait another ten mins until we slice and serve it.
Bon Appetit!
