Author: Canadian Living

Whether you're a single person dining with a friend, a student sharing an apartment or a couple without kids, here is an easy entree for duet dining.

  • Portion size 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchinis (each about 5 inches/12 cm long)
  • 4 cups fresh spinach trimmed
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 slice Toast
  • 2/3 cups pasta sauce
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Method

Cut zucchini into long thin strips.

In skillet over medium heat, combine zucchini and 1 tbsp (15 mL) water; cover and cook for about 3 minutes or until slightly softened and bright green. Drain on paper towels.

In same skillet, cover and cook spinach, with just the water clinging to leaves, for about 3 minutes or just until wilted. (Or in shallow microwaveable dish, microwave zucchini, partially covered, at High for 2 minutes. Microwave spinach, partially covered, at High for 1-1/2 minutes.)

Mix together spinach, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese and pepper. Slice toast in half; place half in bottom of each of two 2-cup (500 mL) ovenproof casseroles; top each with one sixth of the pasta sauce. Layer each with one-sixth of the zucchini, overlapping strips slightly; top each with half of the spinach mixture and one-sixth of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers of sauce, zucchini and mozzarella twice.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven or toaster oven for 20 minutes or until light brown. If necessary, brown under broiler for about 3 minutes.
