I know I don't usually blog about food - but it is one of my favorite things in life! So I just had to share this quick and easy recipe for vegetarian lasagna because it tastes amazing. It started as some recipe I found from a web search, but I didn't have certain ingredients and I wanted to add others, so here's what I ended up with:
In a large pot, sautee:
1 T olive oil
1 T dried thyme
1 T dried basil
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 large chopped onion
1 10oz package of frozen spinach (add this last so the flavor of the herbs can come out in the oil)
Then add the following and simmer for 20 min. The sauce will be very chunky when finished:
32 oz fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 cup spagetti sauce of your choice
1/2 cup water
1 zucchini, sliced
2 jalapenos, sliced
In a separate bowl combine 8oz mozzerella, 1/2 cup grated parmesan, and 2 cups of ricotta (I used low fat).
In baking dish layer sauce, dry lasagna noodles, sauce, noodles. Then layer spinach, cheese, sauce, noodles and repeat, finishing with sauce on top. If you don't have enough sauce left over at the end to completely cover the noodles, don't worry about it too much. This makes great leftovers, and the microwave will soften those exposed oven hardened noodle edges.
Wow. :) I would post a picture but I ate it. Will add later.
