Zucchini Eggplant Lasagna

Ingredients:

 

1 large eggplant, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices

3/4 teaspoon salt, divided

2 teaspoons olive oil

3/4 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium onion)

3 garlic cloves, chopped

3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided

1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano

1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes

1 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped

1 cup (8 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese

1 (8-ounce) package precooked whole grain lasagna noodles

2 medium zucchinis, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

2 1/2 cups (10 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Arrange eggplant slices in a single layer on several layers of paper towels. Sprinkle evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt; let stand 15 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic to pan; sauté 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, oregano, red pepper, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Combine basil, ricotta, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon black pepper in a small bowl. Spread 1/2 cup tomato mixture into the bottom of a 13 x 9–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 4 noodles over tomato mixture; top with half of eggplant and half of zucchini. Spread ricotta mixture over vegetables; cover with 4 noodles. Spread 1 cup tomato mixture over noodles; layer with remaining eggplant and zucchini slices. Arrange remaining 4 noodles over vegetables, and spread remaining tomato mixture over noodles. Top evenly with mozzarella. Cover with foil coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 25 minutes or until browned.
