Ingredients

1 (16 ounce) package lasagna noodles

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, chopped

1 (8 ounce) can sliced mushrooms

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 zucchini, finely chopped

2 (28 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes

1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 pinch brown sugar

salt to taste

1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed

1 (16 ounce) container nonfat cottage cheese

2 eggs

3 tablespoons dried basil, divided

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese

Steps

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

2Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the chopped onions, mushrooms, garlic, and zucchini in the oil until soft. Stir in both cans of crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, brown sugar, and salt to taste. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes.

3Meanwhile, microwave frozen spinach until cooked. Cool, and then squeeze out excess water. Drain cottage cheese. Using a mixer, blend spinach, cottage cheese, eggs, and 2 tablespoons basil until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine shredded mozzarella cheese and grated Parmesan cheese.

4Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread 1 cup sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer 1/3 of the noodles, 1/3 cottage cheese/spinach mixture, 1/3 of remaining sauce, and 1/3 cheese mixture. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle top with remaining 1 tablespoon of dried basil.

5Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
