Roasted Vegetable Lasagna combines the cheesy goodness of lasagna and makes it a little healthier by adding roasted vegetables.

Meatless Monday Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Tom loves lasagna! It is the dish he asks for his birthday and whenever else he thinks I will be feeling like making him a special meal. I dislike making lasagna!! It is messy!! The first time I made Tom lasagna was shortly after we got married and it was a DISASTER!!! Somehow I managed to get sauce over every surface of the kitchen, including the ceiling, and every inch of myself!! Tom got home from work to find me crying… Over the years I’ve gotten better at making lasagna but it’s still not something I like to make so when I tell you I’ve made this Roasted Vegetable Lasagna 6 times this Fall/winter  it should tell you it is really good.

Meatless Monday Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

The roasted vegetables can be a combination of any vegetables you have available, our favorite combination is eggplant and peppers. I roast the vegetables with garlic, oregano, and basil ahead of time and either keep them in the fridge or freeze them until I need them. Mix the roasted vegetables with spaghetti sauce and put half the mixture in a prepared baking dish. Layer lasagna noodles on top (I used oven ready lasagna noodles and it made my life so much easier!) than half of the ricotta and mozzarella cheese mixture. Cover with lasagna noodle and repeat layers. For the top of lasagna spread spaghetti sauce and cover with foil. At this point the lasagna can be baked, put in fridge for the next day, or frozen for future use.  When you bake it remove the foil with about 20 minutes cook time remaining and sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top and return to oven to finish baking.

 

Delicious Meatless Monday meal that your family won’t notice the missing meat, plus it can be made ahead and frozen.

Enjoy and have a Sweet Morning!!
