Zucchini Lasagna

Ingredients

12 pieces of lasagna pasta – cooked
4 zucchini – cut lengthwise into thin slices
1½ cup ricotta cheese
1 egg
¼ cup onion – chopped
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp dried oregano
1½ clove garlic
½ cup grated parmesan
2 cups mozzarella – shredded
1¾ cups of your favorite tomato sauce
fresh basil leaves
1 tsp butter

Directions

~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

~Mix ricotta, egg, mozzarella, parmesan, onion, pepper, nutmeg, garlic, and oregano.

~Butter the bottom and sides of a 9×13″ baking pan. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce in the bottom of the baking dish. Add a third of the noodles in a single layer, top with zucchini slices, spread 1/4 of cheese mixture, top with zucchini slices, basil, and tomato sauce.

~Repeat layers using remaining ingredients. The top layer of lasagna pasta should be covered with tomato sauce and sprinkled with cheese mixture. Cover with aluminum foil.
