Notes

Cooking tips of Vegetable Lasagna recipe

  • Start by boiling the water for the noodles and defrosting the spinach.
  • Prep the mushrooms and cheeses while the water boils and spinach defrosts.
  • Use high-quality tomato sauce, such as this Muir Glen crushed tomatoes with basil.
  • You can prep this lasagna the night before, keep it covered in the fridge, and bake it the day you want to serve it.
  • tip to prevent condensation from building up on the underside of the lid during the 1-hour rest time, place a paper towel under the lid during the rest time.
For this recipe, you cut the bell peppers, zucchini, and mushrooms into very small pieces and roast them on the edges until they are nice and golden.
This caramelization brings a lot of flavors. Then, add the spinach to the pan and cook it for a few minutes so that it is not too thick.
