Easy Roasted Vegetable Lasagna with No Boil Noodles
This delicious vegetable lasagna is easy to make, full of flavor and shows an overabundance of roasted vegetables. It is also meat-free, light and fresh and highly customizable.
By customizable I mean that there are no specific vegetables you need to use, in fact I checked my refrigerator and washed all the vegetables I saw. Of course, if you like certain combinations of vegetables like spinach and mushrooms or whatever, it will work!

Don’t stress about certain combinations, use what you like or have available
like I did.
This is what I had in my fridge, I like to grill vegetables every week anyway and I usually buy a lot. I will eat some for lunch, use them as side dishes for dinner and in the morning with eggs, but this time I decided to also make a vegetarian lasagna with some of them.
had three Japanese eggplants, some carrots, two red peppers, a small head of cauliflower, a yellow pumpkin, a bunch of kale, a small pumpkin, and some Brussels sprouts (which I didn’t use in lasagna). All vegetables were roasted in separate pans at 425 degrees drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper, roasted until lightly browned.
All roasting vegetables can be done one or two days ahead of time.

/>I have to admit that
I was not a fan of unboiled noodles, the ones I’ve tried in the past didn’t impress me at all. But the Delverde brand really caught my eye, I liked the ridges and knew their pasta was good, so I thought I’d try them. This time I have to say that at least with this brand, I am a fan, and this is not sponsored!
The pasta sheets were not thin as paper, still had a nice texture and bite, and had no heavy taste at all.
One thing I never liked about unboiled pasta was trying to spread sauce and ricotta on a dry, stiff noodle, it’s strange to me because I always used the curly lasagna leaves that had to be boiled first.
But I found that if you dip them one by one in a quick dip of warm water, they become a little flexible, easier to spread sauce and cheese, and easier to press on after the layers form, so that’s what I did.
All the vegetables you see in the container above I used (except the brussels) but cut them to make them easier to eat and smaller pieces in the
Between the layers I added thinly sliced raw zucchini. Zucchini cooks so quickly that there was no need to roast it ahead of time, as long as it was finely chopped.
I like to use a mixture of grated and fresh mozzarella cheese along with the ricotta and grated pecorino.
