Reduce the heat to low, add the tomatoes and tomato paste, and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Set aside.
Meanwhile, cook the lasagne noodles according to package directions, omitting the salt.
Rinse with cold water and drain.
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
To prepare the filling, combine 5 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese in a medium size bowl with the ricotta cheese, spinach, mace, cream of tartar, the remaining garlic and pepper, and the reserved onion mixture.
Mix well.
Spoon half the tomato sauce into an ungreased 9"x 9"x 2" baking pan.
Spread 3 tablespoons of the cheese filling on each noodle, roll up as for a jelly roll, and place seam side down in the pan.
Repeat until all the noodles are used.
Top with the remaining sauce.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes.
Uncover, sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese on top, and bake, uncovered, 5 minutes longer.
