  • 2 cups red bell peppers, diced
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups zucchini, sliced
  • Lasagna strips

Procedure

Layout 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 date" and drain.

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 the top pot and set it aside to cool. Divide the sauce into 2 equal portions. Refrigerate 1 portion for use later.

Ricotta Cheese Mix: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and blend thoroughly with a rubber spatula. Set aside at room temperature. Vegetables: Combine all veggies and mix well.

Assembly: Coat the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with vegetable spray. Layout cooked lasagna strips (about 4) to cover the entire bottom. Spread 1 1/4 cups of the Ricotta mix evenly over the strips. Top with 8 cups of veggie mix and spread out evenly. Layout 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 cups 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 degree F oven for about an hour or until the internal temp is 165 degrees F.

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.

Chocolate Lasagna

Ingredients

Pasta

  • 1 3/4 cups flour*
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Filling

  • 4 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
  • 1 pinch salt

Other

  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Procedure

Combine the flour, cocoa, and salt in a bowl and make a well in the center. Add the eggs and oil to the center of the well and mix with a fork to form the dough. Knead the dough for 15 minutes until it is smooth and shiny, adding more flour if necessary to keep the dough from sticking. Wrap well with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Roll the pasta out by hand or with a machine and cut into eight 4 1/2 x 11-inch strips. Cook two strips at a time in boiling salted water. Cook just 20 seconds after the water returns to a boil. Plunge the noodles into cold water to stop the cooking. When cooled, place towels in a single layer to drain. Combine all filling ingredients and mix until smooth.

Assembly
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F with the rack in the upper third of the oven. Generously butter an 11 x 8 x 2-inch pan. Alternate layers of noodles, cheese filling, and chocolate, ending with a cheese layer. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the top is lightly colored. Let the lasagna stand for 10 minutes to solidify, then serve warm. * or 1 cup flour plus 3/4 cup semolina or pasta flour
