If you like, you may substitute chopped, canned no-salt-added whole tomatoes for the canned zucchini with tomato. This lasagna takes about 20 minutes to assemble -- very convenient, and no pre-cooking noodles.

  • We substituted fresh lasagna and fresh spinach, and didn't make as many layers (used the Barilla no-boil lasagna sheets), but this recipe is one of the best-ever lasagnas we've had!
