  • In a greased 2-quart square baking dish, arrange 2 noodles. Spread with a third of the sauce. Sprinkle with a third of the nuts. Top with a third of the zucchini; sprinkle with a third of the cheese mixture. Repeat layering, alternating direction of the zucchini in each layer and finishing with the zucchini; set remaining cheese aside.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bake, covered in a 375 degree F oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining cheese mixture. Bake, uncovered, about 20 minutes more or until the lasagna is heated through. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving for easier cutting. Makes 6 servings.

Tips

Prepare as directed, but do not bake. Wrap, label, and freeze. Freeze cheese for topping separately. To serve, thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Bake, covered, in 350 degree F oven for 1 hour. Sprinkle with reserved cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes more or until the cheese is golden and the lasagna is heated through. Let stand about 15 minutes before serving.
