Vegetable Orgy Lasagna

April 26, 2011 Comments Off on Vegetable Orgy Lasagna

6 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
15 oz tomato sauce
28 oz diced tomatoes
1/2 c fresh basil, coarsely chopped
15 oz ricotta cheese
1/2 lb spinach
1 small eggplant, peeled and minced
8 oz mushrooms, minced
3 carrots, sliced thinly or chopped
1 package (~1lb) ground Italian sausage (optional)
lasagna noodles, precooked or not according to the package
mozzarella and Parmesan

Preheat oven to 375°. Put the eggplant on a double layer of paper towels and microwave it for 3-4 minutes. Fry the garlic and onion in olive oil until soft, then add tomato and basil and a splash of red wine. Cook down a little if necessary. Add the spinach and mix in until wilted. Turn off the heat. Fry eggplant, mushrooms, carrots, and sausage in oil until mostly cooked. Dump ricotta and vegetable-sausage mixture into the tomato sauce and mix it all together—layering is overrated. Butter a 13×9 pan and spread a little sauce in the bottom. Layer some lasagna noodles and then the filling, and finish with mozzarella and Parmesan. Repeat as many times as possible or as fits in the pan, ending with cheese. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes, then uncover and bake maybe 5-10 minutes more.
