NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
Directions

Heat the 1/4 cup olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic; cook until golden, 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, 1 tablespoon herbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste; cook until saucy, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree. Return 1 cup of the sauce to the skillet and reduce the heat to low; reserve the remaining sauce.

Meanwhile, mix the ricotta, egg, parmesan, the remaining 3 tablespoons herbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl.

Place 2 lasagna noodles over the sauce in the skillet. Layer half of the carrot and zucchini on top; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover with half of the spinach, half of the ricotta mixture, a few pieces of mozzarella and 2 to 3 tablespoons of the reserved tomato sauce. Repeat the layers, ending with noodles. Top with the remaining sauce and mozzarella. Cover and simmer until the lasagna is cooked and the cheese melts, 20 to 25 minutes.

Let rest for a few minutes before slicing. Garnish with more parmesan and fresh herbs.

I did some substitutions because I wanted meat rather than just veg. It tasted fine. But for the effort, I'd rather just make the larger vat of oven-baked lasagne and have leftovers for freezing. Also- if you cook only on the stovetop, you miss the crispy cheesy bits that happen in the oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipe. Added a pinch of sugar to the tomato sauce before blending. Could easily add some shredded rotisserie chicken in the layering process if you want to satisfy meat lovers like my husband. Will definitely make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty tasty! Easy to make, took me a little longer to prepare...great recipe for substitutions. I made mine with these substitutions: 1- arugula instead of spinach b/c it's what I had on-hand. 2- Made it noodle-less and used both summer squash and zucchini -no carrots b/c I forgot them!. I think b/c I left out noodles it was a little more liquidy...but still great flavor. 3- made my sauce a meat sauce using ground beef which I seasoned. 4- used frozen 'basil cubes' in sauce, but a bit of pesto mixed in with ricotta/egg mixture I also ended up baking in oven with top off to get golden browning of cheese/top. If I had to repeat as noodle-less, I'd make sure my sauce was further reduced and pop it in oven immediately after layering (instead of covered on stove top. item not reviewed by moderator and published

An outstanding recipe! Made as written, it has wonderful fresh flavor and easy to assemble. The technique lends itself to many variations as noted in the many reviews: jarred sauces, differnt veggies and cheeses. This recipe should b e in every cooks recipe box. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy, breezy and delicious. I even cheated and used Maggiano's jar sauce that I had in the pantry; great sauce, but next time I'll go by the recipe. Definitely a keeper! This would even be good for kids that don't like veggies as they're so thin when peeled this way. item not reviewed by moderator and published
