Ingredients

Two 15-ounce containers part-skim ricotta

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning

1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper, plus more for seasoning

One 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, excess moisture squeezed out

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 1/2 cups shredded Parmesan

1 cup fresh basil leaves, torn

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 yellow onion, diced

3/4 cup shredded carrot

1 yellow squash, diced

1 zucchini, diced

6 cups store-bought or homemade marinara sauce

12 no-boil lasagna noodles (8 ounces)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the ricotta, eggs, salt and pepper. Add the spinach and stir to combine. In a separate bowl, combine the mozzarella, Parmesan and basil. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Add the garlic and onions and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add the carrots, yellow squash and zucchini, and cook until the vegetables are tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and drain off any excess liquid. Spread a third of the marinara sauce over the bottom of a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Arrange a layer of lasagna noodles on top. Spread a third of the ricotta mixture over the noodles, followed by a third of the cooked vegetables. Sprinkle with a third of the shredded cheese mixture. Repeat to make two more layers, ending with the shredded cheese mixture on top. Cover the top of the dish with aluminum foil and bake 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to bake until the top is golden brown, about 15 minutes more. Let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
