I often play the game "If you were stranded on a desert island and all you could eat was _____" What would it be with?" I always said lasagna. And donuts. But mostly, lasagna. I could eat it almost every day. But unfortunately, my waistline cannot eat traditional lasagna every day. The combination of ground beef and three cheeses is great for a special occasion, but is hard to justify when you are doing Weight Watchers. So this recipe for Spinach & Artichoke lasagna is both healthy and satisfying. The husband didn't even notice it was vegetarian - it was that good!
1 onion, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (10 oz) package frozen spinach, thawed, drained & chopped
1(10-14 oz) jar of artichoke, drained & chopped
2 medium zucchini, sliced
1 (28 oz) jar tomato sauce
1/2 cup water or vegetable broth (I just rinse the water into the pasta sauce and use that)
1 tsp EACH basil, rosemary, oregano
2 cups shredded light mozzarella cheese
1 cup low-fat ricotta
1/2 cup parmesan
Lasagna noodles (uncooked)
