broccoli and three-cheese lasagna

from real simple

1 15 oz. container ricotta

1 lb. frozen broccoli-thawed, patted dry, and chopped

2 1/4 cups grated mozzarella (9 oz)

1/2 cup grated parmesan (2 oz)

salt and pepper

1 16 oz. jar marinara

1/2 cup heavy cream

8 no-boil lasagna noodles

olive oil

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, broccoli, 2 cups of the mozzarella, 1/4 cup of the parmesan, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. In a small bowl, combine the marinara and cream.

2. Spoon a thin layer of the sauce into the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish. Top with 2 noodles, a quarter of the remaining sauce, and a third of the broccoli mixture; repeat twice. Top with the remaining 2 noodles and sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of mozzarella and 1/4 cup of the parmesan.

3. Cover tightly with an oiled piece of foil and bake until the noodles are tender, 35 to 40 minutes. Uncover and bake until the top is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
