Lasagna Light Style: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 8
A little bit of chicken Italian sausage and roasted eggplant slices goes a long way in this lighter version of a classic.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups marinara sauce, homemade or commercial
  • 2 cups tomato sauce, canned
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 1/2 lb chicken Italian sausage, removed from casings
  • 4 cups non-fat ricotta cheese
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbs parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 lb lasagna noodles, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400F (205C).
  • Prepare sauce: combine prepared marinara sauce, tomato sauce and water and mix well.
  • Prepare fillings: Slice eggplant into 1/2-inch (2cm) thick rounds. Spray vegetable oil spray on a large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Place eggplant slices on pan and bake in oven for 10 minutes.urn each piece over and bake for another 5 minutes. They should be brown in color, and soft to the touch. Allow to cool to room temperture.
  • Brown chicken sausage in a non-stick skillet, stirring to loosen from pan. Turn off heat and reserve.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine nonfat ricotta, egg white, parsley, and pepper and mix thoroughly.
  • Decrease oven heat to 350F (175C).
  • Assemble lasagna: Pour about 1/2 cup of the sauce on the bottom of a 9x13-inch (23x33cm) pan. Place 4 lasagna noodles on the bottom of the pan, covering the bottom. Spread 1/3 of the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Follow this with a layer of eggplant slices, and 1/3 of the chicken sausage. Pour 1/3 of the remaining sauce over all.
  • Sprinkle about 2 tablespons (15g) of the grated Parmesan cheese over the sauce.
  • Repeat layers, using all the filling ingredients, and ending with sauce. Pour 1 cup (240mL) of water around the edges of the assembled dish.
  • Cover with foil and bake for one hour.
  • Carefully remove foil and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
