Not only it sounds so yummy but all these great vegetables (about 7 SUPERFOODS per serving), low in points for a large portion (I like that!) low in fat, Very high in protein (25 grams) and in fiber (11 grams of fiber!) My only wish is that the sodium content would be lower. I know I can get no salt tomato sauce. Are there low sodium cheeses available? Which brand names?
I'll definetely make it.

I'll celebrate 10 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2014!
Ingredients: 1 lb. (about 3 medium-sized) zucchini; ends removed and sliced lengt hwise into wide, flat strips 1 large portabella mushroom; sliced into strips 1 large eggplant; ends removed and sliced lengthwise into wide, flat strips 15 oz. frozen chopped spinach; thawed, thoroughly drained and patted dry 16 oz. canned tomato sauce with garlic flavoring 1 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles 1 egg white 1 cup fat-free ricotta cheese 1/2 cup shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese 1 tbsp. reduced-fat parmesan-style grated topping 1 tbsp. chopped basil 1/4 tsp. salt pinch nutmeg
Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat soy crumbles in the microwave for 30 seconds, and set aside. Set out a row of several paper towels (as you cook the veggies, transfer them to the paper towels to drain excess moisture). Spritz a large pan evenly with nonstick spray, and bring to high heat. Once hot, lay as many zucchini and mushroom slices as you can fit flat in th e pan, and cook for about 2 minutes per side. Continue until all slices are cooked, removing the pan from heat and re-spraying it between batches. Cook eggplant slices for about 3 minutes per side, continuing to work in batches (removing and re-spraying pan each time). Next, in a large bowl, mix the spinach, egg white, ricotta cheese, basil, salt and nutmeg. Stir well and set aside. Spray a deep 8" X 8" pan with nonstick spray. Pour half (8 oz.) of the tomato sauce into the bottom of the pan. Then, layer half of the veggie slices on top in assorted order. Spread half of the spinach mixture on top. Next, sprinkle the soy crumbles evenly into the pan. Layer with remaining veggies, and then spread the rest of the spinach mixture on top. Cover with the remaining tomato sauce. Then, evenly top the lasagna with the mozzarella and grated cheese. Finally, bake uncovered for 30 minutes (or until the cheese on top starts to brown). Let cool, cut into 4 pieces, and dig in!
