  3. In a large bowl combine sweated vegetables, ½ cup mozzarella, ½ cup parmesan, ricotta, egg. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper.

  4. Grease a casserole dish with butter or Pam.

  5. Now its time to create some layers. First spread 1-1 ½ cups of alfredo sauce evenly. Now make a single layer of lasagna noodles.

  6. Spread 1/3 of the lobster meat and 1/3 of the cheese mixture evenly with a sprinkle of chopped basil.

  7. Add 1/3 of the spinach and top with another layer alfredo sauce and then another layer of lasagna noodles.

  8. Repeat this step 2 more times ending with a pasta layer on top.

  9. Add a small layer of sauce on top.

  10. Finally top the last layer with the remaining cheese, chopped parsley.

  11. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and finish for another 5-10 minutes until the top is golden brown.
