INGREDIENTS

3 c. vegetables (zucchini, summer squash, mushrooms, peppers, or spinach)

12 no-boil lasagna noodles

1 tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 tsp minced garlic

2 (24 oz.) jars pasta sauce

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 c. Parmesan cheese

8 oz. mozzarella cheese

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1 (15 oz.) container part-skim ricotta cheese

How to make Garden Vegetable Lasagna

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F. Using non-stick cooking spray, grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

Step 2: heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, cook the minced garlic. Add the vegetables and saute for about 10 minutes until tender.

Step 3: To the vegetables, add the pasta sauce. When done, take the pan off the heat.

Step 4: Place the ricotta cheese, onion powder, and dried parsley in a medium bowl. Mix well until combined.

Step 5: Onto the bottom of the baking pan, spread the 1 1/2 cups pasta sauce, top with 3 uncooked lasagna noodles followed by 1/4 c. ricotta cheese mixture, then half c. mozzarella cheese and 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese. Do another layer four times and sprinkle the top with Italian seasoning.

Step 6: Around the edges of the pan, pour 1/4 cup of the water. This will help the pasta cook adequately.

Step 7: Tent the dish using aluminium foil. Place in the preheated oven and bake the lasagna for about 45 minutes.

NOTE:

To freeze the whole meal, let the lasagna cool completely and place in a disposable aluminium pan double-lined with aluminium foil, then the freezer.
