Vegetable-Lasagna

December 27, 2011

This is a good one! Talk about comfort food… Perfect for this rainy December night after a rough day at work. I had way too many portions while curling up in front of some classic Sex and the City- episodes.

Inspired by “Den Store Fedt Fattige” published by Reader’s Digest Association Limited, London.

You need:

  • 2 whole garlic
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 250 g squash, chopped
  • 250 g mushroom, chopped
  • 300 g fresh or frozen peas
  • pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups fat-free milk
  • oregano
  • 60 g shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Lasagna noodles

Preparation:

1. Wrap the two garlic in separate bags of aluminum foil and bake them in 390 hot oven for 20 minutes. Take them out, let them cool off, and take the cloves out, remove the leaves. Mash the cloves with a fork in a bowl and put aside.

2. Heat half of the olive oil in a pot and saute onion and squash over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the mushroom and cook for 3 minutes. Add the peas, cook for another minute, and then add lemon juice and pepper. Take the pot off the heat.

3. Heat the rest of the oil in a small pot, add the flour and stir over low heat for a minute. Add milk little by little, bring to a boil while stirring and let it simmer for 3 minutes. Add oregano, Parmesan cheese and garlic. Add all the sauce, except for 8 tablespoons, to the pot with the vegetable mix.

4. Put a third of the lasagna noodles in a roasting pan with olive oil. Put half of the vegetable-mix over the lasagna noodles. Repeat this with another layer of lasagna noodles and vegetables, and finish off with the last third of lasagna noodles. Top off with the last 8 tablespoons of sauce.

5. Cover the pan and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 390 degrees. Take off the cover and bake for another 15 minutes.

6. Top off with some extra Parmesan cheese and ready to eat!

TIP: The large amount of garlic in the sauce does not add an overwhelming garlic-taste. Rather, it empowers the taste of the vegetables.
