1 9x13-inch lasagna


  • 1 (16 ounce) package lasagna noodles

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • ¾ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • ¾ cup chopped onion

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 (26 ounce) jars pasta sauce

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 (15 ounce) container part-skim ricotta cheese

  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook lasagna noodles in a large pot of boiling water for 10 minutes, or until al dente. Rinse with cold water, and drain.

  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add mushrooms, green peppers, onion, and garlic; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in pasta sauce and basil; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes.

  3. While the sauce is simmering, mix together ricotta, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, and eggs in a medium bowl.

  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  5. Spread 1 cup cooked tomato and vegetable sauce into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Lay down 1/2 of the lasagna noodles and layer 1/2 each of the ricotta mix, sauce, and Parmesan cheese on top. Repeat layering again with noodles, ricotta mix, sauce, and Parmesan cheese. Top with remaining 2 cups mozzarella.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
