Easy Seafood Lasagna
4 ounces curly or plain lasagna noodles (4 noodles)
1 1/2 cups coarsely shredded zucchini
1 cup coarsely shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
4 ounces drained canned shrimp, patted dry
4 ounces drained canned crabmeat, squeezed dry
1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups tomato sauce (no salt added)
1 1/2 ounces skim-milk mozzarella cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 375 F. In large pot of boiling water, cook lasagna noodles
10-12 minutes, until tender. Drain, discarding liquid; rinse with cold water.
Drain again. Cut each noodle in half lengthwise; keeping noodles flat and separate,
cover with plastic wrap and set aside. In large nonstick skillet, combine zucchini,
carrot, onion and 1/3 cup water; bring liquid to a boil. Cook over medium-high heat,
stirring constantly, until water is evaporated and vegetables are dry
(do not brown). Transfer cooked vegetables to large bowl. Add ricotta cheese,
shrimp, crabmeat, basil, juice and pepper; with fork, mix well. Place cooked
noodles onto work surface; spread each with an equal amount of cheese mixture.
Starting at narrow ends, loosely roll noodles jelly-roll fashion; place into 10 x 7"
baking dish, cut-side down. In medium saucepan, combine cornstarch and salt; add
tomato sauce, stirring until cornstarch is dissolved. Cook over medium-low heat,
stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and is slightly thickened. Spoon
sauce mixture over and around lasagna rolls; sprinkle rolls evenly with mozzarella
cheese. Bake, covered, 45 minutes, until heated through.
Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes.
