Veggie lasagna

Today’s post is coming from my engineering days friend Krishna.  We had spent a lot of time in canteen eating puffs, sandwiches,dosa with gold spot, thumbs up. If i remember correctly, she even had won competition of drinking thumbs up. We were lab partners too and had too much fun in the labs. Hope she won’t kill me for posting this. We never talked abt making food though. Fast forward few years and we meet again on FB and once again, we have something in common. Love for food or should i say cooking. Yeah, cooking sounds better. 🙂 Over to her delicious Lasagna recipe…

  • After it is cooked, add pasta sauce  about 1 to  1and 1/2 jar. Let it simmer for 20 – 30 min. Once it is done, add ricotta cheese and mix.
  • Boil the lasagna sheets with salt.Layer the 9×13 tray with sheets and veggie mix. Once layers are done, top with mozzarella. Bake at 350 for half an  hour.
  • You can use ready to cook lasagna sheets too but might need more sauce for it.
  • If you don’t like to add sauce to veggies, then  do layers of sauce and veggie.
  • Enjoy and have fun with lasagna.

Tips from health nut me:

  • I would use whole wheat pasta and fresh spinach.
  • I like to use full fat cheese only and not reduced fat. Anything wholesome is good.But you need to make your own decision if you have any health concern.
  • Serve with whole wheat bread and salad on side.
