Cook and cool lasagna noodles and set aside. In a 4-quart sauce pot, sweat garlic, olive oil, and butter together. Add flour to make a roux and stir to incorporate. Turn heat to low and add onions, tomato powder, and Italian blend; stir to incorporate.
Add cream and then milk; whisk to incorporate. Bring to a simmer on medium heat. Add tomato sauce, salt, pepper, and Chef’s Choice and stir. Simmer for 2–3 minutes.
Meanwhile, place all vegetables except tomatoes and spinach in a bowl and cover with water. Drain through strainer, completely pressing excess water out.  Add veggie mixture to sauce once simmering, and cook another 2 minutes. Turn off heat and fold in spinach, tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and 1 cup of mozzarella.
Grease a 9×13 pan and layer the bottom with noodles; spread 1/3 of the filling on top, and repeat with 2 more layers. Top with remaining pasta noodles, cover with remaining mozzarella, and sprinkle basil on top. Bake at 350°F for 20–25 minutes uncovered, or until slightly bubbly and cheese has melted. Prepare tomato sauce and serve over lasagna.
