2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon dried basil – crushed
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups skim milk
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach – thawed and drained
1 2 1/4-ounce can sliced pitted ripe olives – drained
1 15-ounce carton part-skim Ricotta cheese

Cook lasagne according to package directions; drain. Rinse in cold water; drain well. In a medium saucepan, cook onion in margarine until tender. Stir in cornstarch, parsley, basil, garlic powder and nutmeg. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in spinach and olives.

In a medium bowl, stir together Ricotta and egg. Add Mozzarella and half of the Parmesan; mix well.
