Lasagna Al Forno
- 3 cups canned tomato sauce
- 1 pound whole wheat lasagne noodles
- 1/2 cup dry roasted sunflower seeds,
or chopped walnuts
- 1 bunch cleaned, chopped spinach
- 8 ounces shredded lowfat mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup lowfat ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup 1% lowfat milk
Preheat oven to 350°.
Cook noodles and drain on wax paper or aluminum foil (to keep pasta from sticking together while cooling).
Mix Ricotta cheese with milk.
Spread 3/4 cup of sauce in bottom of an 8" x 8" baking dish. Place 1/3 of the noodles on top. Cover with 1/3 the spinach, 1/4 the nuts, 1/4 cup ricotta/milk mixture, 1 tbs parmesan cheese, a layer of mozzarella cheese, and some tomato sauce. Repeat layers twice. Spread the last cup of sauce and the remaining nuts and cheeses on top.
Bake for 40 minutes, and let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
