Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Lay flat on foil to cool. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

In small bowl, stir together Ricotta cheese, egg, parsley and garlic powder.

In 13 × 9 × 2-inch pan, spread 1/2 cup pasta sauce. Arrange 4 pasta pieces lengthwise over sauce, overlapping edges. Spread one-third Ricotta mixture evenly over pasta; spread 1 1/3 cups pasta sauce evenly over Ricotta. Spoon one-fourth vegetables evenly over sauce; sprinkle with 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese.

Repeat layers TWICE, beginning and ending with pasta. Spoon remaining vegetables over pasta; spread remaining sauce evenly over top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; cover with foil.

Bake 50 minutes, remove foil. Bake 10 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
