Vegetable Lasagna with Red Pepper Sauce

Ingredients
6
no-boil lasagna noodles or regular lasagna noodles
8
ounces zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, halved and sliced
2
cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/3
2
teaspoons olive oil
1
cup fat-free or low-fat ricotta cheese
1/4
1/4
teaspoon black pepper
1
cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1
medium tomato, seeded and chopped

Directions

  1. Soak the no-boil lasagna noodles in warm water for 10 minutes. (Or, cook regular noodles according to package directions, except omit salt.)
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook and stir zucchini or yellow summer squash, mushrooms, and onion in hot oil over medium heat for 6 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Drain well.
  3. In a small bowl stir together ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper. To assemble, place 3 lasagna noodles in a 2-quart square baking dish, trimming to fit as necessary. Top with ricotta mixture, half of the vegetable mixture, half of the Red Pepper Sauce, and half of the mozzarella cheese. Layer with remaining lasagna noodles, vegetables, and sauce.
  4. Bake lasagna, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese and the tomato; bake 5 minutes more or until heated through. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Makes 6 servings.
