Bring to a boil; boil gently, uncovered, stirring often, for 5 minutes.
Set aside.
Squeeze as much liquid as possible from spinach.
In a food processor or blender, combine spinach, ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, eggs, and nutmeg; whirl until well combined.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
To assemble casserole, rinse dry lasagne well.
Then spoon about a fifth of the meat sauce into a 9- by 13-inch baking dish.
Cover with a third of the lasagne.
Add another fifth of the meat sauce, half the remaining lasagne, and another fifth of the meat sauce.
Cover with half of the mozzarella slices; spread with spinach mixture and top with remaining mozzarella slices.
Add half the remaining sauce, remaining lasagne, and remaining sauce.
Cover and bake in a 375° oven for 1 hour.
