Roasted Vegetable Lasagna Recipe

vegetable lasagna recipeThis recipe has taken 8 lifetimes to post so please someone make it and tell me about it.

I’m trying out a new recipe plug-in called GetMeCooking to make it easier for me to post and for you to print recipes.

This roasted vegetable lasagna recipe takes endurance and patience and should be planned for a day when you can spend some extra time in the kitchen.  It requires 47 dirty pans but I promise the payoff is worth it.

This is also a recipe that should be doubled and the extra pan given to someone you love.  It’s just as easy to make a double batch and then the effort and time seem justifiable.

My sister ate dinner with us tonight and demanded that this recipe be blogged so she can make it too.  You can thank her for the fancy schmancy presentation!  She loves you like that:)))

I’ve had a host of zucchini breathing down my neck, begging to be made into some kind of deliciousness so this was a good way to use those summer veggies.   After dinner,  sissy and I made 3 different versions of zucchini bread:  one just plain (no nuts), one with dried cherries and one with chocolate chips.   We are here to report that plain Jane is best.  And for the first time in 3 weeks, there is no zucchini staring me down, waiting to be used.

Now, go forth and make roasted vegetable lasagna goodness.

And hire a sous chef to help you with the dishes.

p.s.  I think this dish deserves really good cheese.  I buy good quality cheeses at Sam’s for a fraction of the price of the grocery store.  I buy blocks and cheese and then grate them myself (for this, I used the food processor) so that the flavor and texture is fresh.  It adds to the time and dirty dish factor but again, this lasagna has a very fresh and delicious taste and I think it’s b/c of the good cheese, freshly grated!

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna Recipe


  • 2 Medium zucchinis (sliced and roasted)
  • 1 red pepper (sliced and roasted)
  • 1 red onion (sliced and roasted)
  • 1 Small package of button mushrooms (sliced and roasted)
  • 1 Large tomato (sliced and roasted)
  • 1/2 bag fresh spinach
  • 1 box no boil lasagna noodles
  • 8oz ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 bunch parsley (chopped)
  • 5 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2-3 cups various cheeses, shredded ((parmesan, gruyere, asiago or any other hard cheese))
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg (ground)
  • 1 tablespoon pesto
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tablespoons honey


If you run short on roasted veggies, fill in with diced canned tomatoes or roasted red peppers that have been drained.


Roasting vegetables
Step 1
Slice all the vegetables (I use a mandolin) and add to a large bowl. Add a few tablespoons of olive oil and then season with salt and pepper. Spread the vegetables in a single layer onto 1 or 2 jellyroll pans and then roast at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Roasting the tomatoes
Step 2
Slice the tomatoes thinly and spread onto a jellyroll pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and broil at 450 for 10 minutes.
Mixing the ricotta
Step 3
Mix the ricotta with 2 eggs and the chopped parsley.
Making the sauce
Step 4
Saute the minced garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil and then add the nutmeg and the pesto. Add the milk and cream, keeping the heat at low/medium and then add the shredded cheese. Heat slowly until cheese melts and then add spinach and honey, stirring to combine.
Layering the lasagna
Step 5
Add a couple of ladles of the cheese sauce mixture to the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Add a layer of lasagna noodles and then top with ricotta mixture. Add the roasted tomatoes in a single layer and then top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Add another layer of noodles and then a few ladles of sauce. Add a layer of roasted veggies topped with a cup of mozzarella cheese. Add the last layer of noodles and top with remaining sauce and remaining veggies. Top with grated parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.

  1. Edie-this recipe sounds so yummy. Anything with roasted vegetables is going to be a favorite with me. Our veggie plants are really coming along but yours is much further ahead.

  2. A sous chef is an excellent idea, but I’ll have to substitute my offspring for bowl licking and dish scrubbing. Given the scope of the project (like you – bread, veggie lasagna, zucchini grating for freezer), we’ll definitely need several Pandora stations, epic amounts of dish towels, and possibly a foot rub for the momma when complete. Can’t wait to try!

  3. Thanks for the recipe! This sounds like summer heaven! I can’t wait to try it! My favorite “unhealthy” zucchini recipe is Beer Battered Fried Zucchini!

  4. Cool beans for the new recipe plug in, I love all of your recipes and hope you use it TONS.

    My gosh, this looks delish. Roasted summer veggies? Yum. The kitchen fragrance alone would be worth all of those dirty dishes. Looking forward to trying this!!

    Happy travels! xoxo

  5. Thanks for the recipe. Veggie pasta dishes are my favorite and anything with roasted veggies must be a winner. I think my family will love this enough to make all the clean up worth it.

  6. Just knows you posted this recipe for me, your vegetarian, veganish friend! If I swap out the heavy cream for coconut milk, this could work for me. Totally on my list to try!

  7. oh i hate to cook. i wish i didn’t. no, i really don’t. i don’t like to eat much so i don’t need to cook a lot of variety. can i still be your friend even though i wouldn’t eat vegetable lasagna or zucchini?

  8. one question: what kind of flip flops do you have on in the picture of the old blue kitchen cabinets? they look substantial and comfortable. just what i’m looking for.

  9. ok since you’ve recently acquired all new kitchen gadgets and gizmos and thing-a-mabobs (and lawsie mercy ya earned um) and since you’re a foodie and all, i think it’s only fitting you do a blog post of your top small kitchen appliances and tools etc. i was under the misguided notion if i bought the cheaper blender…..and fill in the blank, I could then also buy cute shoes and lipsticks…..FAIL don’t buy cheap toilet paper or kitchen gadgets…….you can quote me on that. Sooooooooooo I’d love to hear your recommendations as I right my wrongs and buy it one piece at time.

  10. I made this and I am eating the leftovers right now for lunch! It is delish – but oh my lots of pans and lots of time to make. Results well worth it!
