Serves: 12 pieces lasagna
Ingredients
  • Whole Grain Lasagna Noodles (13.25 oz box)
  • 1- 24oz Jar Pasta Sauce (I used Homestyle)
  • ¾ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1.5 Cups Mozzarella, reduced fat
  • 30 oz Fat Free Ricotta Cheese
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 head broccoli
  • ½ onion
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 8 oz mushrooms
  • ¼ cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 Cup Spinach
  • 3 Tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs salt
  • 1 tbs Italian seasoning
  • Pepper to taste
  • 5 bowls for prepped ingredients/easy assembly
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Boil lasagna noodles according to directions to al dente. When noodles are done, run very cold water over them so they don't continue to cook and that they don't burn your hands when you're working with them.
  2. The easiest way to make lasagna is to have all the ingredients in bowls so that it is easy to assemble.
  3. While pasta is cooking, in a pan add 1 tbs olive oil, 1 garlic clove and your cut up broccoli and green pepper and ¼ onion, sauce for 5 minutes. When done, put in bowl and set aside.
  4. In the same pan saute 1 tbs olive oil, 1 garlic clove, mushrooms, zucchini and remaining onion. When done set aside in another bowl.
  5. In another bowl stir together egg, egg white, ricotta, parsley, Italian seasoning, chopped up green onion and parmesan cheese.
  6. In another bowl put the mozzarella cheese.
  7. In last bowl pour out pasta sauce and then when jar is empty, fill ½ full of water and add that to the red sauce and stir it all together. Lastly cut your tomatoes in nice fine slices for top of lasagna and set aside.
  8. This is how to assemble your lasagna layer by layer (in the bottom of a large baking dish):
  9. Spoon/spread a thin layer of pasta sauce on bottom of pan
  10. Layer of noodles
  11. Next come your green peppers/broccoli
  12. Cover with layer spinach
  13. Layer with a spreading of pasta sauce and a sprinkling of mozzarella
  14. Place noodles on top
  15. Spread your entire ricotta/herb mix
  16. Add a layer of noodles
  17. Sprinkle with mozzarella
  18. Put zucchini and mushrooms down
  19. Add a layer of pasta sauce (you should use up all your sauce at this point)
  20. Add a layer of noodles
  21. Cover with remaining cheese
  22. Add the sliced tomatoes in rows along the top of noodles
  23. Bake at 350 for 40-50 min, until cheese is melted and brown around the edges
