Directions:
Directions:

In a large skillet, warm oil over medium heat. Add peppers, squash, zucchini, eggplant, onion & mushrooms and cook, stirring until vegetables are crisp-tender, 12 to 14 minutes.
Add garlic and sauté 2 minutes longer. Transfer in a bowl, stir in herbs and season with salt & pepper.

In a bowl, combine 1 ½ cups mozzarella, ricotta, ¼ cup parmesan, spinach and egg. Mix well.

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil and mist a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Spread 1 cup sauce over bottom of baking dish. Place 4 noodles over sauce, do not allow noodles to overlap (break up noodles if necessary) Spread 1 cup sauce over noodles. Spread ½ ricotta mixture on top. Using a slotted spoon, spread ½ vegetable mixture on top. Repeat layers, ending with noodles. Spread remaining marinara on top of noodles, sprinkle with remaining mozzarella & parmesan.

Lightly mist a large piece of foil w/cooking spray & carefully cover dish w/foil. Place dish on baking sheet & bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil & bake until cheese has melted, and filling is bubbling, about 15 minutes longer. Remove lasagna from oven & let stand for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Note: This recipe may seem like a lot of work, but I always dice the vegetables the night before. Most of the work in this recipe is getting everything diced.
