Vegetable Lasagna-Low Carb-No Meat

I made this recipe up as I went along,
mainly going by what I had on hand last night, in the fridge.
Wish I had some eggplant!! If you do, use it too.
I baked this in a 1 1/2 Qt size casserole dish.
Would be great in little individual ramekins!

3 tablespoons oil
1 medium zucchini sliced thin
1 yellow squash sliced thin
1/2 green bell pepper sliced thin
1/2 onion sliced thin
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 egg
1 tablespoon Italian spices
1 cup grated cheese
6 slices of Swiss cheese(sandwich size)

First I browned all the vegetables, a few at a time,
in a medium hot, oiled frying pan. (could be baked)
Cooking them till tender. I used coconut oil as my oil.
Next I mixed the cottage cheese, egg, grated cheese
and spices together in a bowl.

Then just layer all:
Veggies on the bottom,
2 spoons of pizza sauce next, smeared over them.
1/2 of the cottage cheese mixture
3 slices of Swiss cheese, spread out
then do it again,
ending with the Swiss cheese on top.
I cooked this in the microwave 4 minutes,
let it rest about 10 minutes,
then cooked again 3-5 minutes.
Let it rest before serving.

This could be baked in the oven at 350 degrees about 30-45 minutes,
just till hot and bubbly and the egg has a chance to cook.
Like I said earlier, eggplant would be great in this.
Use what you like best.
Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
