Vegetable Lasagna

Vegetable Lasagna

You don't necessarily need meat to make an amazing tasting lasagna. The trick to serving your lasagna all in one piece is letting it sit for 15-20 minutes before slicing. It will still be hot and will come out intact.

Prepare your pan and preheat the oven.

In a large pot of boiling water cook the lasagna noodles until al dente.  To tell if it is just right remove a noodle and try to pierce it with a fork.  There should be just  a bit of resistance.  Drain and let cool.

While the noodles are cooking chop up your mushrooms, onion, zucchini, pepper and garlic.

Add all your vegetables together in a medium sized pot with the oil and cook until tender.

Add the pasta sauce and basil and simmer until everything is nice and hot about 15 minutes. You can always add more seasoning to suite your taste.  I like red pepper flakes, oregano, a bit of salt…you know play with the taste.  Set aside.

In a bowl combine the ricotta and eggs.

Add 2 cups of the mozzarella and all of the Parmesan.

Stir everything together.

Spray your lasagna pan with cooking spray to prevent any sticking.  Layer the noodles on the bottom of the pan.

Spread half of the cheese mix.

Top the cheese with half of the pasta sauce.

Repeat with another layer of noodles, the remaining cheese and pasta sauce.  Sprinkle the remaining 2 cups of mozzarella cheese on top.

Bake in the oven for 40 minutes then let it stand for at least 15 minutes before slicing.
