(1 hour 20 minutes)


  • 6 hot cooked lasagna noodles (about 6 oz uncooked), cut in half
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 (26 oz) bottle fat-free tomato-basil pasta sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. commercial pesto
  • 1 (15 oz) carton part-skim ricotta cheese
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup (3 oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 375°. Cook lasagna noodles as directed on package. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms, zucchini, carrot, bell pepper, and onion; cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add pasta sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes.

Combine pesto and ricotta in a small bowl. Spread 1/2 cup tomato mixture in the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 4 noodle halves over tomato mixture. Top noodles with half of ricotta mixture and 1 cup tomato mixture. Repeat layers, ending with noodles. Spread remaining tomato mixture over noodles; sprinkle with mozzarella.

Cover and bake at 375° for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes.
