    Ozma's Note:

    This recipe is the easiest lasagna I've ever made, especially since you do not boil the noodles. It's meatless, yet my family (carnivores included) enjoys it. This is based on a recipe I found in the Betty Crocker Low Fat Low Cholesterol cookbook. VARIATIONS: For those who aren't watching their weight, feel free to use the full-fat versions of the cheeses. Also, you may use regular lasagne noodles instead of whole wheat.

      Easy and delicious! I used Classico Italian Sausage spaghetti sauce, and the results were fantastic! I'll be making this again...

      Really easy for a lasagna recipe. Everyone in our family thought it was great and I loved the fact that I could put a bunch of zucchini (which we have an abundance of right now!) through the shredder on the food processor and not have to fiddle with slicing it all. Great recipe!

      I added some ground turkey in with the zucchini, and it was great! We will have this again. Thank you!
