There are no noodles is this lasagna, but delicious layers of healthy vegetables! Serve with ciabatta bread on the side, or turn it into a side dish for chicken or steak. This is also one of my favorite low-carb dishes. Enjoy with a glass of Chianti!

Serves 8

Ingredients:

Directions:

In a large sauce pan heat the olive oil on medium high heat and cook the onions until soft, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Add the garlic and rosemary and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste and water and bring to a light boil, reduce heat to medium and cook until tomatoes start to dissolve, 4 minutes. Stir in the eggplant, zucchini and yellow squash. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and fold in the oregano and basil. Set aside.

In a medium size bowl, mix the ricotta with the eggs. Add the nutmeg and season with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

 In a large oven proof deep-dish, assemble as following:

Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and let it seat for 10 minutes. Top with the arugula and serve.

Notes:

*The white sauce I used is the CSWS (Cynthia’s Special White Sauce) and this is the one I recommend. Click here for recipe. It takes time to prepare but it is worth it. I usually make a large batch and store extra for up to one week to use in other recipes. You can substitute for store bough white sauce, béchamel, or leave the white sauce out of the recipe – in that case it will be less creamy, but still great!
