I like experimenting with different ways of making lasagna. This one was tricky because the vegetables had different roasting times but the final product was delicious.

Ingredients:

 

  • olive oil

  • 12 lasagna noodles cooked as per cooking instructions

  • 1 small butternut squash cut in half length wise

  • 1 large zucchini sliced length wise

  • 1 small broccoli broken up into florets

  • 1 bell pepper deseeded and deveined and cut into strips

  • 1 cup of chopped basil

  • Peel the squash when it’s cool to the touch and dice it into bite sized pieces and combine with all the other vegetables. Add half of the cheese mixture to this.

  • In a 13″by 9″ baking dish, put one layer of noodles. Cover with the unused half of the cheese mixture.
