It is my turn to host our book club and we do a potluck. One of the members is a vegetarian, but eats cheese and eggs (not vegan). I am thinking I will make a veggie lasagna. I usually add fresh zucchini and/or spinach when I make my regular lasagna, but I am open to more ideas


So, what do you put in your lasagna? I am open to any ideas, and I love to experiment!

I made one the other night with mashed pumpkin, sundried tomato pesto, cottage cheese, onion, white sauce, grated cheese and spinach. The omni family weren't too happy but I loved it (only boo boo was the fact I had no white flour so used wholemeal and so had brown sauce instead of white
it looked a bit icky but tasted awesome and you'd obviously use white!!
)

I always follow the exact recipe from moosewood (the original version) and find that it is just fabulous. I always make it exactly the same way, because I don`t want to mess with perfection. I use tofu instead of ricotta though because I can`t buy ricotta.

I like mine "plain" with just sauteed onion and steamed spinach.

For the cheese filler (I can't get ricotta here), I mix cottage cheese, soft tofu, and parmesan. Yummy!

I love spinach in ours, also artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes. I think I'm going to have to make some now that you have me thinking about it. I try to make 2 pans if I'm going to make it. One to put in the freezer.

We LOVE artichokes and sundried tomatoes
Do you use a tomatoes based sauce or a white sauce?

I make a black bean one (black beans, tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc)...which I'm actualy having tonight.

I also do a straightforward one that pretty much like a pasta primavera but you know layered as you do...

I do one with carmelized onions, garlic, kalamata olives, chunky thyme laden tomato sauce, and feta that I expected not to have to share with the kids but they loved...

Once due to a toddler request I made one that was essentially stir fried veggies and bean sprouts with a bit of plum sauce layered with those rice wraps you soak and use for spring rolls (3-4 thick in place of each noodle layer) and goat cheese...

and others I can't remember at the moment...
