Here is a delicious recipe for a low-fat, healthy vegetable lasagna.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 pieces no-boil lasagna
  • 2 24-ounce jars of marinara sauce
  • 1 green pepper (chopped)
  • 3-4 large cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • 8 oz fresh mushrooms (sliced)
  • 1 small green zucchini squash (chopped)
  • 1 small yellow squash (chopped)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 16 oz non fat ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 box chopped spinach

Over medium heat, saute the green pepper, onion, garlic, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms in the olive oil for only a few minutes, making sure not to overcook them. Place all of the sauteed vegetables in a dish.

Defrost the chopped spinach in the microwave and drain the excess water. Mix the spinach with the ricotta cheese and one egg. Add the Italian seasonings to this mixture.

Now we’re ready to assemble the lasagna! Our assembly line includes:

  • No-cook Lasagna
  • Sauteed vegetables
  • Ricotta cheese mixture
  • Marinara sauce

Preheat the oven to 375°

1. Spoon 1/3 of the marinara sauce on the bottom of a rectangular baking pan.

2. Place 3 pieces of the no-cook lasagna next to each other on top of the marinara sauce.

3. Spoon 1/2 of the ricotta cheese mixture on top.

4. Spread 1/2 of the sauteed vegetable mixture over the cheese mixture.

5. Cover with another 1/3 of the marinara sauce.

6. Top with 1/2 of the mozzarella and 1/2 of the parmesan cheese.

Repeat steps 2 through 6 once more.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
