Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 6 oz whole-grain lasagna noodles
  • 10 oz curly leaf spinach
  • 4 large carrots, cut into 
2-inch lengths and thinly 
sliced lengthwise
  • 2 large zucchini, cut into 
2-inch lengths and thinly 
sliced lengthwise
  • 3 radishes, halved and 
thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp organic unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp whole-wheat flour
  • 1 lb reduced-fat or whole milk unsalted cottage cheese

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F. Brush bottom and sides of an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with oil.
  2. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large, shallow pot, add spinach and 1/4 cup water. Heat on medium and cook, stirring, until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and squeeze out excess liquid. Transfer to a paper towel–lined bowl to dry completely.
  4. To pot, add carrots and 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add zucchini and radishes, cover and cook until tender, 3 to 4 more minutes; add additional water as needed. Drain and wipe out pot.
  5. To pot, add butter and heat on medium-low until melted. Stir in garlic, basil and flour until smooth, about 30 seconds. Working in 1/4-cup increments, gradually stir in cheese. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring, for 5 more minutes.
  6. Spread a thin layer of cheese mixture in bottom of dish. Arrange a layer of noodles and half of zucchini, carrots and radishes over top. Spread half of remaining sauce over top. Repeat with a layer of noodles, remaining zucchini, carrots, radishes and spinach. Top with a layer of noodles and remaining sauce.
  7. Bake until top begins to brown, about 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
