Total time:

    1 medium  eggplant, trimmed, sliced lengthwise in 1/4-inch thick slices
    2 large  zucchini, trimmed, sliced lenghtwise in 1/4-inch thick slices
    1 large  egg, beaten
    3/4 lbs.  part-skim ricotta cheese
    1/4 cups  basil, fresh-cut into thin strips
    1/2 cups  Parmesan cheese, grated and divided
    4 cups  Marinara sauce, store-bought, divided
    1/2 lbs.  part-skim milk, shredded and divided

To roast vegetables, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat two baking sheets with cooking spray. Place eggplant on a prepared baking sheet and place succhini on another prepared baking sheet; coat vegetables with cooking spray. Roast 8 minutes; flip vegetables and roast for 7 to 10 minutes more (total roasting time should not exceed 20 minutes or the vegetables will get too mushy). Remove vegetables from oven; reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.

While vegetables roast, in a medium bowl, combine egg, ricotta cheese, basil and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; set aside.

To assemble lasagna, coat bottom and sides of a 14 x 8-inch baking dish with coking spray. Spread a thin layer of sauce (aobut 1/4 to 1/3 cup) on bottom of pan. Lay eggplant over sauce (use all the slices, even if you have to overlap them). Cover eggplant with half of marinara sauce and then spread half of ricotta mixture on top; sprinkle with half of mozarella cheese. Top mozzrella cheese with zucchini and cover zucchini with remaining marinara sauce; spread with remaining ricotta mixture and then sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.

Bake until the bottom stars to bubble, about 35 to 40 minutes. Remove lasagna from oven and allow it to rest for about 15 to 20 minutes before slicing into 12 pieces.
