Ingredients

How to make it

  • Trim ends off zucchini.
  • Thinly slice zucchini lengthwise. (You should have 9 slices total, about 1/8 inch thick.)
  • Place in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet; brush lightly with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil.
  • Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning once; cool.
  • Grease a 2-quart square baking dish; set aside. In a large saucepan heat the remaining 3 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the carrots, onions, and garlic; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until tender.
  • Add marinara sauce, basil, and pepper.
  • Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • In a small mixing bowl toss together the mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese; set aside.
  • In the prepared baking dish arrange 2 noodles.
  • Spread with a third of the sauce.
  • Sprinkle with a third of the nuts.
  • Top with a third of the zucchini, then sprinkle with a third of the cheese mixture.
  • Repeat layering, alternating direction of the zucchini in each layer and finishing with the zucchini; set remaining cheese aside.
  • Bake, covered, in a 375ºF. oven for 20 minutes.
  • Uncover and sprinkle with the remaining cheese mixture.
  • Bake, uncovered, about 20 minutes more or until heated through. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
  • Makes 6 main-dish servings.
  • *Note: All brands of no-boil lasagna are not the same size.
  • Use enough noodles to have 3 even, single layers.
  • To make ahead: Prepare lasagna as directed, except do not bake. Wrap, label, and freeze for up to 1 month.
  • Freeze cheese for topping separately. To serve, thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Bake, covered, in a 350ºF. oven for 1 hour. Sprinkle with reserved cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes more or until heated through. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

    I just made this lasagna and it was DELICIOUS! The walnuts are genius.

    I made 1 change: I used only 1 cup of mozzarella. I mixed it with the parmesan then put some aside for the top. Then I added 1/3 cup sour cream and 1/4 feta to the cheese mixture for the middle layers. It had the consistency of ricotta but MUCH more flavor.

    With my talent I would not use purchased marinara sauce. But that would not stop me from making this fantastic Zucchini Walnut Lasagna.
