Mushroom Pasticcio

We serve this as a reduced fat entree in the cafe using lowfat milk and full fat cheeses. It still comes to less than 12 grams of fat per serving and is rich and delicious. (12 servings)

  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions
  • 4 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh garlic
  • ½ tsp. dried rosemary, ground
  • 1 cup nonfat ricotta cheese
  • 2/3 cup egg substitute
  • 1 cup +1 Tbsp. nonfat milk
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 3 lbs. Healthy Choice or other fat-free tomato sauce
  • 12 oz dried penne pasta, cooked until al dente
  • 3 Tbsp. bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. diced roasted red peppers

Wilt the onions, mushrooms and zucchini with the garlic, herbs and salt. You may need to add a little water to keep them from sticking. Cover the pan and cook until the vegetables are wilted and slightly browned, set aside.
