Vegetarian Lasagna

This lasagna is FABULOUS!!  In an effort to eat a little less meat recently, I've been searching for vegetarian recipes that are healthy and great-tasting.  Well, this one is a winner!
 I found the recipe on  To be honest, first it was the picture that sold me.  It looked so delicious...second, it was the ingredients.  Mushrooms (I love them!) and cottage cheese (it is SO good in lasagna recipes) seemed like great ingredients to this awesome meal.

I am definitely going to make this over and over again... my husband and I absolutely loved it and did not miss the meat at all!

Vegetarian Lasagna

2 cups tomato pasta sauce
1 medium zucchini, shredded (1 cup)
1 (12-oz.) container (1 1/2 cups) low-fat cottage cheese or 1 (15-oz.) container low-fat ricotta cheese
1 9-oz.) pkg. Green Giant® Frozen Spinach, thawed, squeezed to drain well
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
8 precooked lasagna noodles (shelf-stable or frozen), each about 7x3 inches (can use uncooked noodles, just cook them before, and trim if too long)
1 (4-oz.) can Green Giant® Mushroom Pieces and Stems, drained
8 oz. (2 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1. Spray 12x10-inch sheet of foil with nonstick cooking spray. In medium bowl, combine pasta sauce and zucchini; mix well. In another medium bowl, combine cottage cheese, spinach, Parmesan cheese and oregano; mix well.
  • 2. Spread 1/4 cup sauce mixture in ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish. Top with 2 lasagna noodles. Spread about 1/2 cup sauce mixture over noodles. Drop 1/2 cup of spinach mixture by small spoonfuls over sauce mixture; spread carefully. Sprinkle with 1/4 of mushrooms and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese.
  • 3. Repeat layers 3 more times, beginning with noodles. Cover with foil, sprayed side down; refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
