How to cook:
  1. Lay out enough dry lasagna strips in a 9 x 13-inch 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.
  2. ALFREDO 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.
  3. RICOTTA CHEESE MIX: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and blend thoroughly with a rubber spatula. Set aside at room temperature.
  4. VEGETABLES: Combine all veggies and mix well.
  5. ASSEMBLY: 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 cup of the Ricotta mix evenly over the strips. Top with 8 cups of vegetable 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 cup ricotta cheese mix to finish.
  6. 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 degree oven for about an hour or until the internal temperature is 165 degrees. 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.

Yields: 8 servings
Number of ingredients: 15
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 2 cups alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup italian blend shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1 egg
  • 15 ounces whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup asiago cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup romano cheese, grated
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning, blend
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb lasagna noodle
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs

  • Protein: 34.1 grams
How to cook:
  1. Blend first two marinara ingredients together in a large saucepan. Add remaining ingredients and heat on medium, stirring frequently. The cheese will melt and the sauce will become creamy. Keep warm.
  2. Set aside 1/4 of mozzarella cheese. Beat egg into a large mixing bowl and add all remaining ingredients, blending well. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to use.
  3. Cook lasagna exactly according to package directions. Drain and rinse immediately with cold water so they are cool enough to handle.
  4. When ready to make, spread about 1/4 cup of marinara sauce in a large 9x13 baking dish. Based upon the number of noodles in your 1 lb of noodles, divide the filling accordingly. Lay one lasagna noodle in baking dish and spread with filling along noodle. Loosely roll the noodle up, jelly-roll style. Decide if this looks about right to you. If so, keep rolling the rest of the noodles. Otherwise use more filling per noodle and discard the extra noodles.
  5. Continue with each lasagna noodle until all noodles are rolled and arranged in baking dish. Cover each roll with remaining sauce, the remaining mozzarella cheese and top with Italian breadcrumbs.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degree for about 35 minutes.
