This roasted vegetable lasagna is going to make you incredibly happy. We promise. It’s incredibly filling, and packed with savory layers that will have your mouth watering for more. This lasagna is definitely a lighter version of the traditional lasagna, but trust that the flavor is not compromised. Although we used Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, tomatoes, and broccoli for the vegetable filling, you can use any vegetable that roasts well (zucchini, eggplant and/or cauliflower are great options!) I do suggest keeping the tomatoes in there though because they add an amazing dose of juiciness to the dish.
Now let’s get started! You’ll want to pop whatever veggies you’ll be using in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar (brings out flavor and color so beautifully!) You’ll bake the vegetables for 20 minutes, and while that’s underway, you’ll set up your stuffing line. Have your tomato sauce and cheeses measured out in small bowls to make your life easier. Once the vegetables are roasted, set them aside.
Now we’ll move on to the lasagna noodles. If you’re cooking them, follow the package instructions. Make sure they don’t overcook- the noodles should be pliable but firm. Once those are ready, grab an 8×8” baking dish. Line the dish with a thin layer of tomato sauce, and place 3 cooked noodles on the dish. If the noodles are too long, cut them so they match the dish size. Then go ahead and start layering. First tomato sauce, then ricotta cheese, then roasted vegetables, and finish with shredded mozzarella. Keep in mind you want to distribute the ingredients so there’s enough for 2 filled layers + a small bit of sauce and cheeses left to coat the top of the lasagna. Repeat the layering process once more. Then you’ll top the last layer with the remaining 3 lasagna noodles. Add the remaining tomato sauce and cheeses, and bake at 400F for 25 minutes. All done!
This recipe yields 5 servings, which means you’ll have enough leftovers for the week! We hope you give this one a try. Make sure to let us know in the comments below what your favorite variation of lasagna is! Hugs
