This Tomato and Pepper Lasagna is one of our new family favorites!

It makes eight servings and believe me when I say- You won’t miss the meat! Our daughter enjoyed how cheesy it is and I loved the smoky flavor from the peppers.

Now this is light comfort food. Give it a try and let me know what you loved about it!

Ingredients
24 oz Marinara sauce, store-bought
1 cup(s) Canned diced tomatoes, fire-roasted, drained
1 cup(s) Cheese, ricotta, part-skim
1 cup(s) Cheese, mozzarella, part-skim, shredded
1 cup(s) Cheese, parmesan, shredded, Parmigiano-Reggiano suggested
¼ cup(s) Egg substitute, fat free
¼ tsp Salt, table
¼ tsp Pepper, black
¼ tsp Dried oregano
6 item(s) Noodles, lasagna, dry, regular or whole-wheat
½ cup(s) Peppers, red, roasted (packed in water), water-packed, cut into thin strips

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
2. In a small pot, combine marinara sauce and tomatoes; set over low heat and simmer for 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses; stir to combine. Stir in egg substitute, salt, pepper and oregano.
4. Spoon 1 cup of sauce in bottom of an 11- X 7-inch glass baking dish. Arrange 2 lasagna noodles over sauce, down center of dish. Spread half of cheese mixture (about 1 cup) over noodles; top with pepper strips. Place 2 more noodles on top; spread with remaining cheese mixture. Top with 1 cup of marinara sauce; place remaining 2 lasagna noodles on top. Spoon remaining sauce over top and gently press down on lasagna.
5. Cover dish loosely with aluminum foil; bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil; bake until sauce is lightly browned and noodles are tender when tested with a knife, about 10 to 15 minutes more. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes to firm up slightly. Slice into 8 pieces and serve. Yields 1 piece per serving.
