This came out like soup. Has to toss the whole pan

Has potential...needs lots of tweaks

Agree with the first poster that this lasagna comes out looking like slop, nothing like the picture. It's very watery, probably thanks to the zucchini being sliced lengthwise. I ate it anyway and it was actually pretty tasty, but could be greatly improved with several tweaks. First, I'd cut the zucchini into chunks or slice crosswise into slices. Next, I'd drain the mushroom/onion mixture. It was also watery. I'd cook the veggies together instead of trying to saute the zucchini. It made the zucchini a little burnt/weird. I'd mix oregano and basil into the ricotta to up the flavor. I'd also use regular lasagna noodles and boil them separately. No-boil was a joke. Took 40 minutes for the noodles to be done, not 20. It was also super messy and spilled over my skillet...perhaps I needed a bigger one. The layering was also weird with all the veggies on the bottom and all the tomato sauce on top. It has potential and I love that it's such a large serving for under 400 calories. Plus lots of veggies. Definitely needs work though!
