Nothing screams winter to me like a piping hot plate of lasagna. When my boyfriend said he wanted to make some, I jumped at the chance to record and share it with you! Directions and measurements are a little fuzzy, but anyone who is experimental in the kitchen (or already has a lasagna recipe) is welcome to use this to modify your current version. The rue makes a huge difference, and so would some homemade ricotta! (I’ll get around to that soon…)

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:
Veggies of choice.
Pasta sauce.
Lasagna noodles.
Cheese of choice (I recommend mozzarella or ricotta).
Sugar.
Rue.

Method:
In a pot on medium heat, start sweating some onion. James says, “Don’t add garlic to withering onions at first, or else the garlic will burn.”
Add other veggies, pasta sauce (or canned tomatoes), and sugar, and cook down until soft. Use the lid.
Make a rue. You can add garlic and cheese if you’d like.
Lay a layer of noodles into the pan and fill with veggie sauce. Add cheese. Next, Add another layer of noodles and rue. Repeat until desired size.
Cover last layer with rue and cheese, and fill in any gaps with extra pasta sauce.
Bake covered at 220C for 35 minutes. Cook an extra 10 minutes uncovered and let sit in the oven for 10 with power off.
