Whats in the fridge part II

So to make random veggie lasagna out of whatever I could find in the fridge…

Serves: 140 people

Ingredients

  • Mushrooms
  • yellow, red, and orange bell peppers
  • onions
  • spinach
  • veggie burgers
  • ricotta
  • Parmesan
  • cream of mushroom soup
  • eggs
  • Italian seasoning
  • powdered garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • pasta sauce
  • oil
  • whole wheat lasagna noodles
Wordle: recipe for lasagna
  1. Slice the mushrooms and spinach, and dice the peppers and onions.  Sauté these, mixing in the spinach when the other veggies are cooked.  Set aside.
  2. Crumble up the uncooked veggie burgers and set aside.
  3. Combine the Parmesan, cream of mushroom, eggs, ricotta, and seasonings to make a cheese sauce.
  4. Cooke the lasagna noodles according to the package.  Strain the noodles and rinse them well before coating them with oil to keep them from sticking.
  5. Ladle a thick layer of the pasta sauce in the bottom of the pan, and then place the noodles in the pan to make a single layer.
  6. Sprinkle the veggie mixture and the crumbled burgers, and top this with several scoops of the cheese mixture.  Lay out a single layer of pasta over the cheese mixture and ladle a very thin layer of pasta sauce on top of the noodles.
  7. Repeat step six until you have reached the top of the pan, topping the final layer of noodles generously with sauce to keep the noodles from burning.
  8. Bake the lasagna until a thermometer inserted in the center of the pan reads 145F.  Let it cool for about 10 minutes before cutting into portions and enjoying!

    I would never have thought to crumble up veggie burgers! No wonder no one knew it was vegetarian!
