12 Spinach lasagna noodles
1 Onion, chopped
1 Green pepper, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, minced
2 cans (14oz or about 400 g) tomato sauce
110 g Italian seasoning
170 g Zucchini, diced
1 Mushrooms, sliced
1 pkg (10oz or about 300 g) Spinach, thawed & squeezed dry
170 g Ricotta cheese
2 Egg whites
110 g Part skim Mozzarella cheese, grated
30 g Parmesan cheese, grated
Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and preheat over medium heat. Add onion, peppers & garlic. Cook 4 - 5 minutes, until softened. Add tomatoes, seasoning, zucchini & mushrooms. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
Meanwhile, cook noodles as directed on the package, rinse and drain well.
Combine ricotta, egg whites, and well-drained spinach in a mixing bowl. Spread 60 g tomato sauce in a 9 x 13" (about 23 x 33cm) baking dish. Top with 4 noodles, overlapping to fit. Layer with half of the ricotta mixture, a third of the tomato sauce, and half of the mozzarella. Repeat layers. Top with the last four noodles, and the remaining tomato sauce. Cover loosely with foil.
