Cover and pull cord 4-5 times until finely chopped. Place minced garlic on top of ground beef, cover and microwave on high 3-4 minutes. Drain away excess fat in the casserole, then mix beef with marinara and seasoning blend in a medium bowl. Place ricotta in a medium bowl and stir in salt, pepper, nutmeg and lemon juice. In two batches, add spinach to base of Quick Chef® Pro System. Cover and turn handle until roughly chopped. Spread a thin layer of marinara on the bottom of 3-Qt./3 L Casserole. Place one whole noodle directly in middle of sauce. Break another noodle to fit around the center piece to create a layer. Do not overlap. Place another layer of sauce on top, followed by half the spinach, then half the ricotta. Place a second layer of noodles, sauce, spinach and ricotta cheese. Finish with a layer of noodles and sauce on top. Cover and microwave on 50% power 16 minutes. Place sliced mozzarella on top of sauce. Cover and microwave an additional 3 minutes.
