How to Make NO-NOODLE VEGETABLE LASAGNA

Step-by-Step

  • 1To roast vegetables, preheat oven to 400 F. Coat two
    baking sheets with cooking spray.
  • 2Place eggplant on one prepared baking sheet and
    place zucchini on other prepared baking sheet; coat
    vegetables with cooking spray.
  • 3Roast 8 minutes; turn
    over vegetables and roast for 7 to 10 minutes more.

    (total roasting time should not exceed 20 minutes or the
    vegetables will get too mushy); remove from oven and
    set aside.
  • 4Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine egg,
    ricotta cheese, basil and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese;
    set aside.
  • 5When vegetables are done, reduce oven temperature
    to 350°F.
  • 6To assemble lasagna, coat bottom and sides of a
    14” X 8” baking dish with cooking spray. Spread a thin
    layer of sauce (about 1/4 to a cup) on bottom of pan.
  • 7Layer eggplant over sauce (use all the slices, even if
    you have to overlap them).
  • 8Cover eggplant with half of marinara sauce and then spread half of ricotta mixture on top; sprinkle with half of mozzarella cheese.
  • 9Top mozzarella cheese with zucchini and cover zucchini
    with remaining marinara sauce; spread with remaining
    ricotta mixture and then sprinkle with remaining
    Parmesan cheese.
  • 10Bake until bottom starts to bubble, about 35 to 40
    minutes.
  • 11Remove lasagna from oven and allow it to rest
    for about 15 to 20 minutes before slicing into 12 pieces.
    Yields 1 piece per serving.
  • 12NOTE: Use a mandoline to slice the vegetables,
    if possible. If you do not have a mandoline and
    cannot cut long, even slices of the eggplant and
    zucchini with your knife, you can slice them into
    1/4-inch rounds instead.
