To really impress guests make 1/3 of the sheets red (red pepper), 1/3 green (spinach) and 1/3 without coloring. Arrange colors to match the Italian flag. Be a bit stingy with the top layer of sauce and cheese so they see the flag.
Sounds like something from one of those white-bread cooking magazines, but people like it.
