How to Make Vegetable Friendly Lasagna


  1. Optional: 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.
  2. In a pan brown and season chicken with salt, black pepper and garlic powder
  3. In 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.
  4. In the cottage container, add egg, parmesean cheese, garlic powder, and black pepper to the cottage cheese.
  5. Boil lasagna and place cooked noodle on parch paper to avoid sticking.
  6. Layer in a medium glass lasagna dish
  7. How to Layer Lasagna
    1. Layer of tomato sauce (too much sauce can cause lasagna to be liquidy)
    2. Layer of noodles
