Reign On Steve’s Vegetable Lasagna -Week 17

I remember trips to Maine and those great Sunday dinners of Rose’s.  Her smile would grow if you ask for seconds and with one hand holding the edge of your plate making retreat impossible she would pile on the pasta, lasagna, meatballs…..and when you could hardly hold the plate up then she was satisfied you had ample seconds. Well this Christmas I made lasagna in her honor but added some vegetables since Lyn batted her eyes and asked do you think…… I never came up with those picture perfect lasagna but it always taste good.

Ingredients

  • 1 box of lasagna noodles ( this time I cheated and used the oven ready ones)
  • 1 container (32 oz.) Dragone Part-Skim Ricotta cheese
  • 1 large zucchini slice very thin lengthwise – I used a mandolin
  • I carrot julienned and roughly chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • About 1-1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 1 package (16 oz.) Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Pasta sauce -3-5 cups

Bake for about an hour minutes until sauce is bubbly

Cover with the remaining cheeses and bake until melted about 10 minutes uncovered

I also finished off with 2 minutes under the broiler I like that very slight crunchiness

Cover loosely and let sit for at least 15 minutes
