Success, will try again but half all ingredients if just 2 people

Prep Time: 20 Minutes - Difficulty: Easy - Cook Time: 45 Minutes - Servings: 12 Servings

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces, weight Lasagna Noodles
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Medium Onion
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Diced
  • 24 ounces, weight White Mushrooms, Chopped
  • 4 whole Squash (yellow Or Zucchini), Diced
  • 1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup White Wine
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, Chopped (more To Taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt (more To Taste)
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 30 ounces, weight Ricotta Cheese
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 pound Thinly Sliced Mozzarella Cheese
  • Extra Parmesan Cheese, For Sprinkling

And Basil has to be in there somewhere

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and lay flat on a sheet of aluminum foil.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook for a minute. Add diced red peppers and saute for another minute or so. Add squash and mushrooms and cook for a few minutes. Pour in wine, add salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, and stir.

Pour in tomatoes. Use hands to squeeze/crush them. Stir to combine and let simmer for 20 minutes or so. Stir in chopped parsley.

In a separate bowl, combine ricotta, eggs, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.

To assemble, spread a little of the vegetable/tomato sauce in a lasagna pan. Layer four cooked noodles in the pan, slightly overlapping them if necessary. Spread 1/3 of the ricotta mixture on the noodles. Top the ricotta mixture with mozzarella slices. Spoon a little less than 1/3 of the veggie/sauce mixture over the mozzarella.

Repeat the layering two more times, ending with a large helping of vegetable sauce and a sprinkling of Parmesan.

Bake at 350 degrees, covered in foil, for 20 minutes, then remove foil and continue baking for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to stand for 10 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.

Serve with crusty French bread.

From the website…I’d definitely like to see some zucchini in there with the yellow squash. Eggplant would certainly be yummy, too, as would different varieties of mushrooms. Have fun with it. Make it your own.

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Ina Garten's Roasted Vegetable Lasagna Serves 10

  • 1 1/2 pounds eggplant, unpeeled, sliced lengthwise 1/4-inch thick
  • 3/4 pound zucchini, unpeeled, sliced lengthwise 1/4-inch thick
  • 2/3 cup good olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 cloves)
  • 10 ounces lasagna noodles, such as De Cecco
  • 16 ounces fresh whole-milk ricotta
  • 8 ounces creamy garlic-and-herb goat cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves, lightly packed
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 4 1/2 cups good bottled marinara sauce, such as Rao's (40 ounces)
  • 1 pound lightly salted fresh mozzarella, very thinly sliced

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Arrange the eggplant and zucchini in single layers on 3 sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Brush them generously with the olive oil on both sides, using all of the oil. Sprinkle with the oregano (I crush it in my hands), 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper. Roast for 25 minutes, sprinkle the garlic evenly on the vegetables, and roast for another 5 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked through. Remove from the oven and lower the temperature to 350°F.

Meanwhile, fill a very large bowl with the hottest tap water and add enough boiling water to bring the temperature to 140°F. One at a time, place the noodles in the water and soak them for 15 minutes, swirling occasionally so they don’t stick together. Drain and slide the noodles around again.

Combine the ricotta, goat cheese, eggs, basil, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 3/4 teaspoon pepper in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix on low speed.

Spread 1 cup of the marinara in a 9×13×2-inch baking dish. Arrange a third of the vegetables on top, then a layer of the noodles (cut to fit), a third of the mozzarella, and a third of the ricotta mixture in large dollops between the mozzarella. Repeat twice, starting with the marinara. Spread the last 1 1/2 cups of marinara on top and sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup of Parmesan.

Place the dish on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 60 to 70 minutes, until the lasagna is browned and bubbly. Allow to rest for 10 minutes and serve hot.

Make-Ahead Notes

  • Assemble the lasagna completely and refrigerate for up to 1 day or freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost (if necessary) and bake before dinner.
