In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, mozzarella cheese, spinach, and 1T of basil. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 375. In a baking dish or lasagna pan, spoon into base ⅓ of the meat mixture followed by the first crust. Add ½ of cheese-spinach mixture topped with the next ⅓ of the meat. Top with the second crust and add the remainder of the cheese-spinach mixture. Top this layer with the remainder of the meat then sprinkle with the grated parmesan and fresh basil. Bake for 30-45 min or until warmed through and bubbly, brown. Remove from oven and let stand 10 min before serving. Enjoy!
