Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 pounds zucchini, divided
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 6 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 9 lasagna noodles, cooked, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

Finely dice 1/2 cup zucchini; set aside. Slice the remaining zucchini. In a large saucepan, saute the sliced zucchini, mushrooms, onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in the tomatoes, 3 tablespoons parsley, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 12-15 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, mozzarella, ricotta, cream cheese, grated Parmesan, onion powder and remaining parsley, salt and pepper. Spread 1 cup of the tomato sauce in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Layer with three noodles, half of the cheese mixture and a third of the remaining sauce. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining noodles and sauce.
Cover and bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with diced zucchini and shredded Parmesan. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until bubbly. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 12 servings.

"This is another one of my families favorites. I have changed this only a little bit. In place of three whole eggs, I only use egg whites and in place of the cream cheese I use 8oz of tofu. Served with a nice tossed salad and dinner is served."
