Fast. Simple. Delicious.

- 8 ounces no-boil lasagna noodles
- 15 ounces part-skim ricotta cheese or 1 lb drained and mashed soft tofu
- 3 cups lightly steamed vegetables (any veggies ie broccoli, mushrooms)
- 8 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, grated
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Spread a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a 9″x13″ casserole.
- Cover with a layer of noodles (3 or 4 noodles should be enough).
- Place ricotta in a bowl and add about 1/4 cup of water, stirring until blended.
- Spread 1/3 of this mixture over the pasta (you can use a cake spatula).
- Spread 1/3 of the remaining pasta sauce over the cheese.
- Spread 1/3 of the vegetables over the sauce.
- Sprinkle 1/3 of the mozzarella over the veggies.
- Repeat twice starting with the noodles and ending with the mozzarella.
