  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/4  cup           dry Sherry or defatted broth
   1      cup           sliced onions
   3      cups          mixed sliced bell peppers
                        (red & green and yellow)
   2      cups          sliced mushrooms
   2      tablespoons   chopped fresh basil
   1      cup           nonfat ricotta cheese
   1      cup           nonfat cottage cheese
   4      cups          reduced-calorie pasta sauce
   1      pound         lasagna noodles
   2      tablespoons   grated nonfat Parmesan cheese
     1/4  cup           toasted bread crumbs

Serves 8 to 10.  Mixed colors of bell peppers make this a stunning main dish.

Heat Sherry in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onions
and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft but not browned, 5 minutes.
Add peppers and mushrooms and cook until mushrooms lose their liquid, 5
minutes.  Stir in basil.  Remove from heat.

Puree ricotta and cottage cheeses in blender or food processor.

To assemble, spoon 1 cup of pasta sauce in bottom of 9-by 13-inch baking
pan coated with nonstick vegetable spray.  Top with layer of uncooked
noodles, 1/3 of vegetables, then 1/3 of cheese mixture.  Repeat until all
ingredients are used up, ending with pasta sauce.

In small bowl, stir together Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs and sprinkle
over lasagna.  Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Remove foil and bake until lightly browned
and bubbling, about 15 to 20 minutes longer.
