Ingredients

  • 9 lasagna noodle sheets, cooked
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon red crushed pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons
  • 4 cups milk
  • 10 ounces Brebis cheese or goat cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
  • 2 cups shredded yellow zucchini
  • 3 cups shredded green zucchini
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella

Directions

Preheat oven to 375° F.

In a pot, heat olive oil and cook onions for about 5 minutes, until translucent. Add the garlic and red crushed pepper. Cook for another minute. Stir in the flour and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the milk and keep stirring until mixture becomes thick. Stir in the cheese until fully melted, then season with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Add the parsley.

Pour a little of the sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Layer 3 sheets of lasagna noodles to cover bottom. Pour more sauce and spread evenly. Top with 2 cups of mixed squash. Layer another 3 sheets to cover, followed by the sauce, then another 2 cups of mixed squash. Repeat another layer. You should end with the last cup of mixed squash. Top with 2 cups of mozzarella cheese. Place in oven and bake for 40 minutes until golden brown and bubbly.
