    • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
    3. Bring 1/2 cup (125ml) water to a boil in a saucepan and cook the spinach for 4 to 6 minutes until tender.
    4. Place the cooked pasta in a medium bowl. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs and oil. Toss the pasta with the cooked spinach, egg mixture and breadcrumbs.
    5. Cover the bottom of a 20x30cm baking dish with 1/3 of the pasta sauce. Pour half of the pasta mixture into the baking dish and cover with another 1/3 of the pasta sauce. Sprinkle with half of the Cheddar cheese and half of the mozzarella. Layer with remaining pasta mixture and top with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the rest of the Cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.
    6. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven or until bubbly and lightly browned.
