How to make vegetable lasagna

  1. Let's start by peeling, washing and cutting the vegetables : peel the carrots and cut them into cubes or sticks, wash the courgettes and cut them in the same way, remove the earth and cut the mushrooms into strips, finely chop the onion and cut them into 2 halves. cherry tomatoes.
  2. Now take a pan, pour in a generous drizzle of oil and, when it is hot, add the onion and let it brown .
  3. Then add carrots and courgettes and cook for a few minutes, adding water as needed .
  4. Then add the mushrooms and, when the vegetables are cooked, add the cherry tomatoes.
  5. Give them a stir and let them cook over a low heat, then wait for the filling to dry , add salt and remove from the heat.
  6. Now prepare the béchamel . Start mixing the melted butter with the flour in a saucepan until you obtain a slightly colored roux .
  7. At this point slowly add the milk, continuing to mix with the whisk to prevent lumps from forming .
  8. When the béchamel has thickened ( it will take a few minutes but we recommend leaving it slower, as it will cook a second time in the oven) add nutmeg and salt to taste, then turn off the heat and start assembling the lasagne .
  9. Take a rectangular pan and dirty the base with a spoonful of béchamel sauce, then start with the first layer of pasta, followed by a layer of béchamel sauce.
  10. Add a nice layer of vegetables, a handful of grated cheese and cover with a layer of pasta.
  11. Continue layering in this way, finishing with pasta, béchamel and a generous sprinkling of grated cheese.
  12. At this point it's time to put the first vegetarian in the oven. Cook at 180°C for 30-35 minutes . For the last 5 minutes, put it in grill mode to create a nice toasted crust on the surface and complete with a nice sprinkling of fresh parsley before serving.
