Zucchini is the star of this lasagna recipe, adding a unique texture and flavour. Not to worry - there are still the familiar layers of noodles, meat sauce and creamy ricotta. Try this lasagna recipe tonight or make it ahead and freeze for later.

Step 1
Heat oven to 350°F.

Simmer on medium-low heat for 20 min. or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, stir together egg and ricotta in small bowl.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Make Ahead
For the perfect make-ahead dish, prepare two lasagnas; bake and serve one now, and cover and freeze other for later use.
Special Extra
This recipe lends itself well to the addition of herbs. Make it your own by adding 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley, basil or oregano.
