Ingredients

  • 12 packaged dried lasagna noodles

  • 4 cup zucchini, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 2 ½ cup thinly sliced carrots (5 medium)

  • 2 cup fresh cremini or button mushrooms, halved

  • 1 ½ cup coarsely chopped red or green sweet pepper (3 small)

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 12 ounce carton cottage cheese

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 26 ounce jar marinara pasta sauce

  • 3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (12 ounces)

Directions

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain again. Place noodles in a single layer on a sheet of foil; set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. In a large bowl combine zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, and sweet peppers. Drizzle vegetables with oil; sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Toss well to combine. Place vegetable mixture in a shallow roasting pan.

  3. Broil vegetables 5 to 6 inches from the heat for 6 minutes. Stir vegetables. Broil for 6 to 8 minutes more or until light brown and tender. Set vegetables aside.

  4. In a medium bowl combine cottage cheese, egg, and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese; set aside. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F.

  5. Grease a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Place one-third of the marinara sauce in prepared baking dish. Layer four of the cooked noodles on top of the sauce. Top with half of the roasted vegetables, one-third of the sauce, and one-third of the mozzarella cheese. Add four more noodles, all of the cottage cheese mixture, and one-third of the mozzarella cheese. Add the remaining four noodles, the remaining vegetables, the remaining sauce, and the remaining mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

  6. Cover baking dish with plastic wrap, then with foil. Freeze for up to 1 month.

  7. To serve, thaw in refrigerator overnight (lasagna may still be a bit icy). Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove plastic wrap; re-cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour. Uncover. Bake about 20 minutes more or until heated through. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. If desired, top with freshly shredded Parmesan cheese.
