Last week I cooked Roast Vegetable Lasagne. This is definitely not a quick meal to cook, but it is super tasty. Also if you serve it up with some garlic bread, then the dish will last two nights.

Roast Vegetable Lasagne

Ingredients:

  • 750gms Lasagne Sheets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Olive oil spray
  • 850 grams diced tinned tomatoes (or sometimes I use 400 grams tomatoes and 500gms pasta sauce for a stronger tomato flavour).
  • 1 white onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 600 grams butternut pumpkin
  • 2 large red capsicum
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 large eggplant
  • 350 grams grated mozarella cheese
  • 350 grams grated tasty cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 750 mls milk
  • 75 grams butter
  • Sea salt flakes

Instructions:

Roasting Vegetables:

  1. Heat grill on high.
  2. Core and cut capsicums into large pieces.
  3. Place on lined tray and put under grill. Allow to blacken.
  4. Place capsicums in a plastic bag and tie a knot to close. Allow to rest.
  5. Slice egg plant thinly, spray with olive oil and sprinkle with salt flakes. Place under grill and cook for a few minutes each side. Take out and set aside.
  6. Heat oven to moderate temp (180 degrees Celsius).
  7. Slice pumpkin thinly. I aim for about half a centimetre Cut zucchini into slices.
  8. Place on lined or greased tray. Spray with olive oil and place in oven.
  9. Pumpkin will take about 40 minutes to cook. Turn once during cooking.
  10. Zucchini will take about 20 minutes to cook. Turn once during cooking.

What veggies do you include in your Vegetable Lasagne?

Sauce Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat. Add onion and garlic and fry for a few minutes until onion is softened.
  2. Dice tomatoes roughly and add to the pan.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until sauce thickens. (As the white sauce takes a little time to make, I tend to do this once I have the pasta sauce simmering.)
  4. Turn heat off and gently stir in vegetables

White Sauce Instructions

  1. Chop butter roughly and place in a microwave jug and add flour.
  2. Cook for approx 45 seconds on high in microwave.
  3. Stir vigorously to make a smooth paste.
  4. Add milk, stir again and cook in microwave for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir again, getting lumps out, particularly from the bottom.
  6. Cook for approximately another 2 minutes.
  7. Keep going like this until the mixture is smooth and thick.

Layering Lasagne

  1. Lightly spray lasagne dish with olive oil.
  2. Lay lasagne sheets on bottom of dish. Break bits up so entire bottom is covered.
  3. In the pan divide the mixture into at least two portions (dependent upon lasagne dish size).
  4. Spread a half of the mixture over the lasagne sheets.
  5. Sprinkle with a half of the tasty and mozzarella.
  6. Repeat until all sauce has been used.
  7. After the final layer of lasagne sheets, pour white sauce evenly over the top.
  8. Cover with aluminium foil. My older sister taught me recently that if you push some tooth picks into the dish, then arch foil over the top, the foil doesn’t stick to the white sauce. Bake for 40 minutes.
  9. Take off foil, turn off oven and turn on grill.
  10. Grill for 5 minutes or until golden on top. MONITOR CLOSELY.
  11. Take out of the oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.

    I am trying out the wonderful lasagne recipe tonight – looks great. I just wanted to mention, that the recipe doesn’t list “lasagne” in the ingredient listing. It is the kind of thing that I am likely to completely forget when I go to the supermarket & then get very annoyed when I get home and can’t make the recipe! Thanks for a terrific site – I am a huge fan!
