Round Veggie Lasagna

And then the Lord said, "Let there be Round Veggie Lasagna." I found this recipe on the Proud Italian Cook blog. It is one of my favorite blogs to visit. I was excited to try this, but Chris was not over the moon about the idea of a meatless lasagna. We had it on Monday night and it was well received. We had the other half on Wednesday night, Ash Wednesday and all and Chris actually said he would not mind eating this dish any night of the week. This is when I saw the heavens parted and angels singing. I had after 20+ years found a meatless meal that my husband was requesting to have again.

I used eggplant, red pepper, zucchini and onion. I roasted them, brushing the veggies with olive oil and seasoning them with salt and pepper.  The cheeses were fontina, Parmesan, Mozzarella and ricotta. The ricotta was Sorrento Galbani, which is a new variety of Sorrento. It has that "authentic Italian taste."  We did like the taste of the ricotta. It tasted fresher.
