Veggie Lasagna with Meat

No, this isn't an oxymoron.

And -- The flour and durum wheat and semolina producers aren't going to like me for this one. The Gluten or Wheat intolerance folks will like this.

I substitute very thin sliced Potatoes, Zucchini and Egg Plant for the traditional noodles. Layer a mixed combination of them in each layer. And, I prefer a meat sauce.

It's a Keeper.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I use an 8" by 12" glass pyrex baking dish for this. Add a light coat of Olive Oil and rub and line dish.
2
Wash and slice thin the Potatoes, Zucchini and Egg Plant. Mix the Ricotta and Cottage Cheese well.
3
Start with thin layer of veggie combination, sprinkle on a very little Italian Seasoning. Then add thin layer of cheese mixture. Then thin layer a Spaghetti Sauce. Continue with additional layers of Veggies, Cheese and Sauce. Add a little Salt and Pepper if you must.
4
Every second or third layer add a few thin slices of Mozzarella, Provolone or Fontina Cheese.
5
Finish with a layer of sauce, and a few strips of the thin sliced cheese. Add two pats of Butter (2 Teaspoons) and drizzle with a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
6
Cover dish with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove foil and add a couple additional slices of cheese last 10 or 15 minutes.
7
Serve with Salad (Italian Dressing or Vinegar and Oil), warm sliced Italian Bread with a EVOO and Parmesan topping, And a fine glass of Chianti Wine. Ciao

NOTE: I like a meat sauce, if you choose meatless sauce you have a true Veggie Lasagna. You might try my "Spaghetti Sauce -- Italiano" with meat, (which see.)
