Why do I love it so much? Because a) it provides for at least three meals and b) each slice has 310 calories (or at least according to my Light Cooking cookbook). Hello, deliciousness:
Step 1: dice one onion and 3 zucchinis while pre-heating your oven to 350 degrees
Step 2: saute about 3 teaspoons of garlic (I use the pre-diced jar cause I'm lazy) in olive oil once the garlic has browned add in the onion and zucchini
Step 3: while the veggies are cooking, take half a box of lasagna noodles and boil for about 7 minutes (they don't need to be fully cooked, they will finish cooking in oven)
Step 4: add in one jar of whole tomatoes and one jar of crushed tomatoes to the veggies along with a few basil leaves and stir. Let simmer for about 10 minutes.
Step 5: take 1 egg, basil leaves, ricotta cheese and a half cup of mozarella. Mix all ingredients. While mixing sprinkle in salt to liking.
Step 6: lay out strips of pasta (after thoroughly draining) in a veggie oil spread pan. Spread the cheese mix onto the strips and then generously ladle sauce on top. Repeat until you run out of strips, cheese and sauce.
Step 7: Sprinkle with mozarella & a bit of parmesan, pop into the oven for 30 minutes and...
Step 8: voila! Cheesy heaven. Cut, eat and toast with a sweet Moscato.
By the way, this recipe is usually not veggie only. Unfortunately, the ground turkey I was going to use refused to thaw out in time for my allotted cooking time. Simply cook the turkey while sauteing (is this a word? spell check isn't picking it up) the garlic and onions before adding in the zucchini. It's awesome either way!
Any recipe suggestions folks?
