Olive Oil, For Baking Dish

8 Ounces Cream Cheese, Room Temperature

1 Container (15 Ounces) Part-Skim Ricotta Cheese

Coarse Salt And Ground Pepper

2 Medium Zucchini (8 Ounces Each), Halved Lengthwise, Then Sliced Thinly Crosswise

3 Or 4 Roma Tomatoes, Sliced Thin

1 Garlic Clove, Minced

2 Teaspoons Dried Oregano

6 No-Boil Lasagna Noodles

2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

 


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil an 8-inch square baking dish; set aside.


In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese and ricotta; season with salt and pepper. 


In another medium bowl, combine zucchini, garlic, and oregano; season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine.


Spread 1/3 zucchini mixture in prepared baking dish; top with tomatoes slices.  Layer with two lasagna noodles, then 1/3 ricotta mixture and a handful of mozzarella cheese. Repeat twice with remaining zucchini mixture, tomatoes, noodles, and ricotta mixture, finishing with the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella.


Cover baking dish with aluminum foil; bake until bubbly and noodles are tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove foil; bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.


Hint:  spray the foil with cooking spray before laying on top of the cheese to prevent it from sticking.
