DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • Prepare the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and transfer to a 3-quart casserole dish.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the zucchini or sweet red pepper, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, red-pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
  • Combine the egg whites and the ricotta in a medium bowl, stir to mix well, and spoon over the pasta. Top with the vegetable mixture and sprinkle with the mozzarella and Parmesan.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
