This recipe sounds great, but I think that I would make it in the oven instead of the microwave. Since I love zucchini I would omit the bellpeppers and add more zucchini.

And for those who want to completely eliminate that starch in the lasagna,
elongated eggplant or zuccini slices can be used in placew of the noodles.
