Brown sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Remove sausage to a paper towel to drain.
Place 1 noodle onto four greased pieces of double thickness aluminum foil, each about 16 x 12-inches. Drizzle each noodle with 1 tablespoon water. Layer each with 2 slices mozzarella, salt, pepper and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Sprinkle each with an eighth of the sausage, 1/4 cup tomatoes, 1/2 cup spinach and 1/4 cup cheddar. Season with salt and pepper. Repeat layers. Top with remaining noodle; drizzle each with 1 tablespoon water. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar. Fold foil into packets and seal tightly.
Grill, covered, over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Flip packet; grill, covered, for 10-15 minutes longer or until noodles are tender. Meanwhile, combine the remaining tomatoes, basil and olive oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Remove foil packets from the grill. Let stand for 5 minutes. Take care when opening the foil; allow the steam to escape. Serve lasagna with tomato salsa.
