Who doesn't like a good Lasagna? Ok Ok, this is not the classical Bolognese-Lasagna, but full of vegetables that makes it irresistible for all of us Veggies lovers!
I love to invent, to create and to add new ingredients or combination of them to well known recipes I am used to make. That's how I always come up with different mixes for pastas, or rices, or stews. This time I didn't want to spend much time when cooking, and when I opened the fridge, all we had were veggies, veggies and more veggies. As I know that the rest of the family are meat lovers, I found myself wondering what to make with so many veggies. So I decided to make use of the rest of the lasagna from the Tomato Lasagna, and created something new. I confess I didn't know how the result was going to be. And was well worth it!!!
What I love from cooking with pasta (in different kinds) is that you can always come up with something new, or you can adjust a recipe to your taste. So if you don't particularly like some of the ingredients, you can omit or change it. It will be good anyway.
- 2 Tomatoes
- 2 Carrots
- 1/2 red Paprika
- 2 Zucchini
- 1/2 Onion
- 15 - 20 Brussels Sprouts
- 6-8 slices of smoked ham (like Italian Prosciutto, or German Rohschinken)
- 6-8 Tbsp Cottage Cheese
- 6-8 Tbsp Sour Cream
- Cheese for Gratin (Edam, Gouda, Parmesan)
- Lasagna Noodles
- Salt, pepper, basil, garlic for seasoning
Slice thin all the veggies. In a sauce pan half full of boiling water, cook the Brussels Sprouts for around 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare a pan with few Olive Oil and cook the Zucchini until they are reduced in half their size, but don't over cook them, we want them half cooked and a bit crunchy.
