Vegetable Lasagna (cont.)
Directions:

  • Cut unpeeled eggplants crosswise into 1/2 inch slices; cut zucchini lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices. Brush 3 shallow 10 x 15 inch baking pans with oil; arrange vegetable slices in a single layer in pans.
  • Bake in a 400'F oven for 15 minutes; then turn vegetables over and continue to bake until tinged with brown (about 15 more minutes).
  • Meanwhile, slice tofu; place between paper towels and press gently to release excess liquid. Place tofu in a medium-sized bowl and mash well.
  • Mix in cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, rice, fennel seeds, and red pepper flakes.
  • Spread 1/2 cup of the sauce in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Top evenly with half each of the eggplant, zucchini, and tofu mixture; spread with 1 cup more sauce. Repeat layers.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in a 400'F oven until heated through (about 45 minutes). Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving
