Swiss Chard Tomato Lasagna with Zucchini Noodles

Introduction

As a participant of a summer CSA (community supported agriculture program), we get varied produce every week. This week was Swiss chard, zucchini and tomatoes. I have alwasy wanted to try making lasagna with zucchini noodles rather than pasta. I figured this was my chance.

Ingredients

    1 bunch Swiss chard*
    3 large tomatoes*
    2 medium zucchini*
    2 Tbsp olive oil
    3 garlic cloves
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tbsp dried basil (I would use fresh, but I don't have any)
    1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
    1 (15-oz) container part skim ricotta
    1 large egg*
    2 cups part-skim mozzarella, split
    1/2 cup grated parmesan, split

Directions

Wash chard and remove stems; coarsely chop. Fill a large Dutch oven with water; bring to a boil. Add chard to water and simmer for 1 minute (after returns to boil). Quickly remove with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice water. Squeeze water from the chard and lay out on paper towels; set aside.

Wash and cut and X into bottom of tomatoes. Bring water to boil in same Dutch oven. Carefully put tomatoes into boiling water. Allow to boil for 1 minute or until skin starts to pull away from flesh. Remove to ice water. Peel tomatoes, remove cores and dice into 1/2 inch dice. Heat oil in large skillet. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Add tomatoes and spices. Bring to a simmer and cook 15 minutes. Add Swiss chard and cook until heated through.

Wash zucchini, cut ends off, then thinly slice lengthwise (1/4 inch slices). Boil water, add slices to water and then simmer for 2 minutes (after water boils again). Remove to ice water, then layd out on paper towels to dry a bit.

In a medium bowl, beat egg. Add ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup mmozzarella and 1/4 cup parmesan; mix well. Heat oven to 350F.

To assemble lasagna, spray large baking dish with cooking spray. Place a layer of zucchini "noodles in bottom of pan. Spread 1/2 cheese mixture over "noodles". Spread 1/2 tomato chard mixture over cheese. Repeat layers. Add third layer of zucchini noodles and sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and parmesan.
