These lasagnas are light yet substantial. Best of all, you don't have to turn on the oven.


  • ½ cup ricotta

  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan

  • 3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 8 lasagna noodles, broken in half crosswise

  • 1 small garlic clove, minced

  • 2 pints grape tomatoes, halved

  • 2 zucchini (about 1 pound total), halved if large and thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon torn fresh basil leaves, plus more for serving


  1. In a small bowl, combine ricotta, Parmesan, and 2 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles according to package instructions; drain.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high. Add garlic and tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until slightly broken down, about 3 minutes. Transfer tomatoes to a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon oil and zucchini to skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until zucchini are tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to another bowl and stir in basil.
