Lay out enough dry lasagna strips in a 9x13 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 dente" 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 top pot and set aside to cool. Divide the sauce into 2 equal portions. Refrigerate 1 portion for
RICOTTA CHEESE MIX: Combine all ingredients in a
bowl and blend thoroughly with a rubber spatula. Set
aside at room temp.
VEGETABLES: Combine all veggies and mix well.
ASSEMBLY: Coat the bottom and sides of a 9x13
baking dish with vegetable spray. Lay out cooked
lasagna strips (about 4) to cover entire bottom.
Spread 1−1/4 c of the Ricotta mix evenly over the
strips. Top with 8 c of veggie mix and spread out
evenly. Lay out 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 c ricotta cheese mix to
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 375F oven for about
an hour or until the internal temp is 165F. 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.
