Eggplant, Zucchini, Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna #Recipe

Monday, October 17, 2011 Posted by Aleksandra Nearing

This is a twist on my favorite lasagna recipe that typically includes ground turkey.  I used eggplants and zucchini instead.  It turned out pretty well and also froze well.  Overall this is a pretty healthy recipe if you stick with part-skim cheese.  Enjoy!

1 medium onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium egglant, washed and sliced
1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 container mushrooms, chopped
1 large jar of pasta sauce
lasagna noodles
16oz part-skim ricotta cheese
bag of shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 raw egg
salt and pepper to taste

Saute your onions and garlic in a splash of olive oil or cooking spray.  After about 3 minutes I add the mushrooms, spinach and zucchini.

As your veggies simmer, slice your eggplant.

Then in a separate bowl make a cheese mixture that consists of the entire container of ricotta cheese, egg and half of the bag of shredded Mozzarella cheese.

Layer your pan with a thin layer of pasta sauce, noodles, ricotta, veggies, eggplant.  Repeat till you've used your ingredients.

When I run out, I top with the rest of the shredded cheese and some pasta sauce.  We love pasta sauce!  Bake at 350 degrees until bubbling, or for approximately 45 minutes.

    Yummo!! Sounds so good! I haven't made lasagna in a while. Maybe I'll have to put it on the list this week! Following you on GFC now.

    This sounds wonderful. I tend to get lazy and make lasagna in the crockpot. I just layer it all in and let it cook all day while I'm work.
