A deliciously different take on white lasagna, with little (or no) cheese and big on veggies, here's a healthy, hearty and satisfying meal-in-one.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 (10-ounce) box brown rice lasagna noodles 
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth 
  • 4 cloves garlic , chopped 
  • 1 pound yellow squash (about 3) , chopped 
  • 2 yellow onions , chopped 
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh herbs, such as basil, oregano and parsley , divided, plus more for garnish 
  • 1 cup unsweetened almondmilk 
  • 2 cans no-salt-added white beans, such as navy or cannellini beans , rinsed and drained 
  • 1 tub part skim ricotta cheese (or make your own tofu ricotta
  • 1 package frozen broccoli , thawed 
  • 1 package frozen spinach , thawed and squeezed of excess moisture 
  • 1 large tomato , diced

Method: 

Cook noodles per package instructions. Rinse in cold water after draining and spread out in a single layer to prevent sticking. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat broth in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, squash, onions and 1/2 cup of the herbs and cook, stirring often, until liquid has evaporated, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, in a food processor, purée almondmilk, beans and ricotta until smooth; transfer to a bowl and set aside. In a 9-x13-inch baking dish (this recipe makes a very full pan, so make sure your dish is at least 2 inches deep), layer lasagna as follows, scattering remaining herbs in between layers: ricotta mixture, noodles, broccoli and spinach, noodles, squash mixture, noodles, ricotta mixture. Top with tomato and bake, uncovered, until hot throughout, about 45 minutes; set aside to let rest 15 minutes. Cut into squares, garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
