Let's Make It
Heat grill for indirect grilling: Light one side of grill, leaving other side unlit. Close lid; heat grill to 375ºF.
Cut zucchini lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices; place in large bowl. Mix dressing and garlic until blended. Add to zucchini; mix lightly.

Combine pasta sauce and sausage; spread 1/2 cup pasta sauce mixture onto bottom of 8-inch square foil pan sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with layers of 1/3 of the zucchini, half the ricotta mixture and 1/2 cup sauce. Repeat layers. Top with remaining zucchini, sauce, shredded cheese and Parmesan; cover with foil. Cut small slit in foil to allow steam to escape.
Place lasagna on grill grate over unlit area. Grill 30 min. or until heated through, monitoring for consistent grill temperature. Remove lasagna from grill; carefully uncover. Let stand 5 min. before serving.

How to Safely Cut the Zucchini
Cut thin slice from one long side of each zucchini. Place, cut sides down, on cutting board, then cut vertically into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
How to Grill with Indirect Heat
When grilling over indirect heat, the food is not cooked directly over the heat source. The covered grill then acts like an oven, so there is no need to turn the food. The indirect grilling method is used for foods that require at least 25 min. of grilling time or foods that are so delicate that direct exposure to the heat source would dry them out, such as roasts, whole chickens, thick steaks, ribs or delicate fish fillets. To set up a gas grill for indirect grilling, light one side of grill leaving other side unlit. Close lid; heat grill to desired temperature. When ready to grill, place food on unlit side to cook as directed. If using a charcoal grill, preheat the grill by lighting the coals and heating them to desired temperature. Then, move the coals to outside edge of charcoal grate. Place the food in the center of the grill grate and grill as directed.
Assemble lasagna in foil pan, then cover with sheet of foil and refrigerate up to 8 hours. When ready to grill, heat grill for indirect grilling. Cut slit in top sheet of foil. Place pan on grill grate over unlit area. Grill lasagna as directed, increasing the cooking time to 40 min. or until lasagna is heated through.
