Veggie Lasagna

You must make this recipe - it's so good! Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you off... it's pretty easy and pretty healthy and it's an easy one-dish dinner! It's so full of hearty veggies that you won't even miss the meat!


Recipe adapted from here.

9 lasagna noodles, cooked
2 eggs, beaten
16oz container cottage cheese
15oz container ricotta cheese
2 heaping tsp Italian seasoning
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1 cup chopped white onion
1/2 cup chopped green onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups milk
10 oz package chopped frozen spinach, thawed
10 oz package chopped frozen broccoli, thawed
1 cup shredded carrot
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese

1. In a bowl, mix together eggs, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, and Italian seasoning. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet. Saute mushrooms, onions, and garlic until tender. Stir in flour and pepper. Add milk. Cook and stir until bubbly and a little bit thickened.
3. Remove from heat. Stir in spinach, broccoli, carrot, and 1/2 cup Parmesan.
4. In a lightly-greased 9x13 pan, assemble lasagna. Start with three noodles, then 1/3 of the ricotta mixture, then 1/3 of the veggie mixture, then 1/3 of the mozzarella. Repeat layers twice. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan.
5. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes, or until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
