Ingredients

  • 10 whole wheat lasagna noodles or fortified lasagna noodles (omega-3 and protein variety) boiled according to package directions or no-boil variety
  • 4 ounces mozzarella part-skim, fresh grated, sliced, or chopped and divided (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese skim or low-fat
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 3 cups tomatoes coarsely chopped plus 1 tomato, sliced into 6, thin rounds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 yellow zucchini or green, medium, grated on the large holes of a box grater (cheese grater)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning or 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil and oregano mix

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together ricotta, squash, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, and half of the mozzarella.
  • Puree the tomatoes, salt, garlic, Italian seasoning or fresh herbs, and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a blender or food processor on high until smooth.
  • Spray or coat the bottoms and sides of the ramekins or baking dishes with olive oil. Add a spoonful of tomato sauce to the bottom of each.
  • Tear or cut the lasagna noodles into 4 pieces. Place one piece of lasagna noodle, top with ricotta mixture, top with a noodle, add sauce and mozzarella, and then add the ricotta mixture, and repeat. For the final layer of each, top all of the ramekins with a lasagna noodle, some of the tomato sauce, then a slice of the tomato and a sprinkle of the Parmesan cheese and some freshly ground black pepper.
