How to Make Vegetable Friendly Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  • 1Optional: I make my sauce from scratch so I probably would make it the night before and refrigerate. I live by the motto that tomato sauce taste better the next day. But you can use pre-made chunky vegetable sauce.
  • 2In a pan brown and season chicken with salt, black pepper and garlic powder
  • 3In a saute pan in a little oil, cook zucchini, squash, onion, green pepper, and season with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Put in a strainer for about 1-2 hours to drain access juice.
  • 4In the cottage container, add egg, parmesean cheese, garlic powder, and black pepper to the cottage cheese.
  • 5Boil lasagna and place cooked noodle on parch paper to avoid sticking.
  • 6Layer in a medium glass lasagna dish
