Not Quite A Veggie Lasagna
Posted by Allison @ Quaint Oaks
Now you know me, I always seem to modify recipes...whether it's because I forgot an ingredient or I'm having some kind of wacky craving. So, as I looked at veggie lasagna recipes (after buying the ingredients) I realized veggie lasagnas typically have white sauces. Ho hum. Red it would be. And I love my turkey meat, so this was not quite a veggie lasagna...it just had a lot of veggies in it.
As I boiled the pasta, I browned up some Italian seasoned turkey meat and in a separate pan, cooked all of my veggies... green and yellow zucchini, broccoli, garlic, mushrooms, and shredded carrots.
In a separate bowl, I whisked two eggs and mixed in ricotta cheese and some Italian seasoning. I typically wouldn't add egg, but I was recently told I needed to eat more eggs...at least one a day...so in they went! I love disguising food in other food.
Then, I started layering...
A lil' bit of sauce
At this point I thought I was going to have too much for my baking pan.
But it all fit just right!
This was absolutely delicious! I'm glad I didn't use the white sauce because I felt like it was just a little healthier. There was a bit of cheese, but that's calcium, right??? And it made so much food that I was able to eat it for lunch, too!
