- Ingredients – Sauce:
- 2 medium red peppers
- 1/2 medium onion
- 2 medium cloves garlic
- 4 medium tomatoes, raw
- 1/8 teaspoon ground thyme
- 1/2 cup home-made vegetable broth
- 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 medium onion
- 3 medium tomatoes, raw
- 4 medium cloves garlic
- 6 ounces mushrooms
- 1 cup skim-milk ricotta cheese
- 2 ounces low-fat Swiss cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh basil
- 1 pound fresh spinach
- 1 Tablespoon fresh parley
- 6 ounces spinach lasagna noodles
- 4 ounces grated Parmesan
Sauce: Roast the red peppers and all the onions and garlic. (To roast onions and garlic in a microwave, place an unpeeled onion in microwave for 5 minutes on High. In the last 2 minutes, add the garlic cloves.) Combine peppers, onion, garlic, tomato (peeled, seeded, and diced), thyme, and stock in a sauce pan; simmer for 15 minutes. Transfer to a food processor or blender and add pepper sauce and balsamic vinegar; puree. Set aside.
Lasagna: Cook lasagna noodles per instructions, then drain and rinse with cold water. Wash spinach leaves and steam; chop coarsely. In a non-stick skillet, combine onions, tomatoes, garlic, and mushrooms; simmer until liquid evaporates, about 15 minutes. Let cool, then add ricotta cheese, Swiss cheese, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well. In an oiled 9 x 13-inch baking dish, put down a layer of noodles. Top with a layer of spinach, then onion-and-tomato mixture, then Parmesan. Repeat layers until all ingredients are gone. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 40 minutes. Serve with tomato-red bell pepper sauce on top.
