Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 12 pieces of lasagna, uncooked
  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, halved
  • 2 zucchini or yellow squash, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 yellow or red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 26 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 15 oz. container part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/4 tsp. hot red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Preparation

Prepare lasagna according to package directions. While lasagna is cooking, heat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a shallow metal roasting pan with cooking spray. Add mushrooms, squash, bell peppers and onion. In a small dish, combine vinegar, oil, garlic and rosemary; brush evenly over vegetables. Bake vegetables 15 minutes. Toss vegetables, then continue baking 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are browned and tender.

Spoon 1 cup spaghetti sauce over bottom of 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Arrange 4 pieces of lasagna (3 lengthwise, 1 widthwise) over the sauce. Cover lasagna with 1 cup sauce. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, spinach, egg white and hot red pepper flakes. Drop half the cheese mixture by spoonfuls over sauce; arrange half the roasted vegetables between spoonfuls of cheese mixture. Arrange another 4 pieces of lasagna over cheese and vegetables, pressing lightly; top with 1 cup sauce. Repeat layering with remaining cheese, roasted vegetables, 4 pieces of lasagna and remaining sauce.

Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F. Cover lasagna with foil; bake for 45 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese; continue baking, uncovered, 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
