Olive Garden Style Vegetarian LasagnaA
bountiful vegetable mixture, a rich ricotta cheese mixture, and a
homemade, cream sauce make this vegetarian lasagna well worth the extra
out enough dry lasagna noodles in a 9x13 pan to ensure you have enough
to make 3 full layers, with very little overlap on each layer. Remove
the dry strips and cook according to package instructions until barely
"al dente" and drain.
Sauce: Heat water to a boil in the bottom of a double boiler. Add
butter, cream and pepper to the top pot and heat until butter is
completely melted, then stir in Parmesan until melted and blended.
Remove top pot and set aside to cool. Divide the sauce into 2 equal
portions. Refrigerate 1 portion for use later.
Ricotta Cheese Mixture: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and blend thoroughly with a rubber spatula. Set aside at room temp.
Vegetables: Combine all veggies and mix well.
Coat the bottom and sides of a 9x13 baking dish with vegetable spray.
Lay out cooked lasagna strips (about 4) to cover entire bottom. Spread
1-1/4 c of the Ricotta mix evenly over the strips. Top with 8 c of
veggie mix and spread out evenly. Lay out 9 of the mozzarella slices to
cover the veggie layer. Repeat this layering. Top the second layer of
mozzarella slices with lasagna strips and spread them evenly with 1-1/4 c
ricotta cheese mix to finish. Cooking: Spray a sheet of foil with
vegetable spray and cover the baking dish tightly with the foil, sprayed
side down. Bake in a preheated 375~ oven for about an hour or until the
internal temp is 165~. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for a few
minutes, covered, before cutting and serving. Immediately prior to
serving, heat the reserved portion of Alfredo Sauce and ladle the hot
sauce over each slice of lasagna as it is served. Serves 8.
