This easy Vegetable Lasagna is made with chicken broth, so it's not exactly vegetarian fare. It is, however, a great choice for an otherwise meat-free dish.

Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375°F.
Melt butter in medium saucepan on low heat. Stir in flour and pepper; cook and stir 2 min. or until bubbly. Gradually stir in broth; bring to boil on medium heat, stirring constantly. Simmer on low heat 3 to 5 min. or until thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in 3/4 cup Parmesan.
Heat dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add carrots; cook and stir 4 min. Stir in peas and garlic; cook 1 min. or until carrots are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Set aside. Mix ricotta and remaining Parmesan until blended.
Spread 1/4 cup of the Parmesan sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with layers of 3 noodles, half the ricotta mixture, 1/3 of the vegetable mixture, 3/4 cup mozzarella and 1/3 of the remaining Parmesan sauce; repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles, Parmesan sauce, vegetable mixture and mozzarella; cover.
Bake 40 min. or until heated through, uncovering for the last 10 min. Let stand 10 min. before cutting to serve.
For added color and texture, serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Stir 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil into ricotta mixture before using as directed.
