Roasted Vegetables Lasagna

It is time to give your favorite lasagna a meat-free makeover by replacing the usual meat sauce with a simple marinara sauce and blend of chunky vegetables roasted until yielding soft and ever so slightly charred.

It’s got all the elements that make homemade lasagna so delicious – that gratifyingly substantial belly-warming goodness, a surprisingly hearty flavour that belies its vegetarian origins, and that ever-important ooey-gooey melted cheese layer on top.

Note: Most of the components of this recipe (namely the roasted vegetables, the marinara sauce and the ricotta layer) can all be assembled a day or two in advance… or just skip the homemade marinara and use a good-quality jarred sauce instead. All that’s left to do on the day of is to boil the noodles, assemble the lasagna and then pop it into the oven until bubbly and delicious.pasta roasted vegetables lasagna
