This recipe is so full of flavor and creamy.... noone will ever miss the meat!!
I have been making this recipe for quite a number of years. I'm alway's look for new ways of incorporating veggies to my family's diet!
Have used various vegetables as well, roasted, the sweetness of the vegetables is next to none!

There are other vegetable lasagna dishes out there, but they call for "whole roasted veggies", our family likes the consistency of the pureed!

This recipe is very, very easy. The only "hard part", is waiting for the veggies to roast! A plus is not cooking your noodles beforehand, the sauce cooks them to perfection!!

I hope your family enjoy's this dish as much as mine!!

How to Make White Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Set the parmesan to the side to use later. On a baking sheet wrapped with aluminum foil. Lay your cleaned veggies. Score the eggplant vertically to insert 4 cloves of garlic into the eggplants. Drizzle with olive oil, kosher salt and pepper.
  2. Bake 1hr to 1hr and 15 minutes till veggies are nicely roasted and a little charred.
  3. While veggies are roasting, you can prepare your cheese filling. In a small bowl, add your ricotta, your parmesan cheese, parsley, salt & pepper. Start stirring, the mixture will be thick. Add 1/4 c of chicken broth, and stir thoroughly. Chill till ready to use.
  4. Meanwhile, dice your onion and saute it with 2 tbls of olive oil. Just till tender and starting to carmelize, set aside. Once the veggies are roasted, let them cool till able to handle. In a food processor, add all the veggies, as is. The sauteed onion, 1 c of roasted red peppers, 1/4 c of wine, 1/4 c of chicken broth and parsley. Whizz in processor. Add the 1/4 c of parmesan cheese, and whizz for a more seconds.

  6. Dallop the ricotta mixture over the veggie puree.

  8. Lay another layer of noodles over and continue to layer until you reach the top. (I got 3 layers). Pour the remaining can of chicken broth all over the lasagna set aside.
  9. In a saucepan prepare you bechamel sauce. Melt your butter, add your flour, cook it for about 1 minute or so, add your milk and whisking constantly, continue to whisk till mixture has thickened.
