Updated on March 8, 2011

Fresh Vegetable Lasagne


  • 1 head green cabbage, cored and sliced
  • 2 yellow squash, sliced
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 15-oz jar low-fat tomato sauce
  • 1 6-oz can tomato paste
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 ½ tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp fresh basil, minced
  • 1 15-oz container low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups grated 2% Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 package dry lasagne noodles


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In large skillet over medium heat, cook cabbage and squash in oil until tender (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat and drain oil. Meanwhile, in large saucepan over high heat, stir together tomato sauce, paste, water, sugar, salt, pepper, fresh tomatoes and basil. Bring to boiling, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Mix cheese and egg whites in medium bowl while cooking lasagne noodles according to directions (omitting salt and fat, if called for). In 13 x 9 baking dish, evenly spoon 1 1/3 cups tomato sauce mixture. Arrange half of lasagne noodles over sauce, overlapping to fit. Spoon all but ½ cup of cabbage mixture over noodles and spread evenly. Cover with half remaining sauce, top with remaining noodles and cheese mixture, then sauce. Bake 45 minutes or until heated through, remove from oven, and spoon remaining cabbage mixture over top of lasagne. Let sit 10 minutes for easier serving.
