Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Ingredients


  • 1  16-oz. package lasagna noodles
  • 2 (26 ounce) jars pasta sauce
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 (15 ounce) container part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preparation

Cook the lasagna noodles in a large pot of boiling water for 10 minutes, or until al dente. Rinse with cold water, and drain.
In a large saucepan, cook and stir mushrooms, green peppers, onion, and garlic in oil. Stir in pasta sauce and basil; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.
Mix together ricotta, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, and eggs.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread 1 cup tomato sauce into the bottom of a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer 1/2 each, lasagna noodles, ricotta mix, sauce, and Parmesan cheese. Repeat layering, and top with remaining 2 cups mozzarella cheese.
Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
