Default Vegetable Lasagna


This recipe may take a bit of time to cook, but it's well worth it. The calories are significantly reduced because zucchini and squash are used in this recipe instead of pasta.

Prep time: 80 minutes


1 lb. zucchini
1 lb. squash
tsp. Italian seasoning
tsp. black pepper
2 c. tomato pasta sauce
16 oz. low-fat cottage cheese
2 egg yolks
1/3 c. Parmesan cheese
2/3 c. seasoned bread crumbs
2 c. mozzarella, part-skim
3 c. spinach
1 c. fresh basil
nonstick cooking spray


1. Heat oven to 425 F (218 C).

2. Coat two baking pans with nonstick cooking spray.

3. Cut all squash and zucchini lengthwise in half. Then, cut each half lengthwise into slices about 1/4 inch thick.

4. Spread squash and zucchini on pans in single layer and season with Italian seasoning.

5. Bake for 25 minutes, turning over once halfway through baking.

6. Remove from oven and set aside. Reduce oven temperature to 375 F (190 C).

7. In a large skillet, heat pasta sauce over medium-high heat. Mix trimmed spinach into the pasta sauce.

8. In a food processor, combine cottage cheese, basil, egg yolks, and 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese. Blend until all ingredients are combined and smooth.

9. Assembly: Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs over the bottom of a 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Cover the bottom of the dish with half of the zucchini and squash slices. Next, spread cottage cheese mixture over the squash and zucchini slices. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of bread crumbs. Top with remaining zucchini slices. Sprinkle with the remaining 3 tablespoons of bread crumbs. Pour pasta sauce evenly over the top. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over the top. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.

10. Bake for about 35 minutes. Cheese should be browned and bubbling. Let stand for 10 to 25 minutes before serving.

Serves: 10, Serving size: 2 x 4 inches
