Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna recipe is the best loaded with eggplant, zucchini, summer squash, broccoli, and cauliflower. Covered with a creamy white sauce, marinara sauce, and plenty of cheesy goodness from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Simply the BEST Roasted Vegetable Lasagna recipe! At least according to Colt and the kids. You'll have to try it and let me know if you agree.

We love Lasagna in our house. Well we love ricotta-less lasagna in our house, because Logan doesn't care for ricotta. He'll eat it, but doesn't absolutely love it. So, I always make a white sauce aka b├ęchamel instead of ricotta or cottage cheese which makes for an even more mind blowing mouth experience.

Sometimes I like to change up our favorite Best Ever Baked Lasagna with Roasted Veggies. It's a true toss up in our house between both lasagnas. I can't choose which one I love more, both are so delicious! 

The cheesy saucy goodness makes it easy to hide the veggies between layers of pasta without a complaint, and the roasting of veggies adds a nice hearty flavor to make up for the lack of meat.

It's a favorite on Meatless Mondays or when we have a guest over who is vegetarian, but still consumes dairy. We also make it on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, because it's just that good! 

Here's how I make it so you can stuff your face with it too...


Roasted Vegetable Lasagna recipe peel and dice eggplant. Cover with salt and allow to drain from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Peel and Dice 1whole Medium-ish Sized Eggplant, and toss with 1 teaspoon Salt. Place it in a colander, and allow it to sit for 30 minutes either in the sink or over a bowl. It's amazing how much liquid will come out of the eggplant during this time.

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna recipe rinse eggplant from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

After 30 minutes it's going to look like this.. Rinse it well, and pat dry with a clean dry kitchen towel or paper towels.

Drizzle with about 2 tablespoons Olive Oil and toss to coat. Spread out evenly on a baking sheet.

On a second baking sheet add:
  • 2 cups Diced Zucchini 
  • 2 cups Diced Yellow Squash aka Summer Squash
  • 2 cups Diced Broccoli Florets 
  • 2 cups Diced Cauliflower Florets
Drizzle with about 2-3 tablespoons Olive Oil, until lightly coated.

Roasted Veggie Lasagna recipe toss together roasted veggies from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Roast veggies in a 400° oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown stirring about half way through to promote even color.

Toss together all the veggies, and set aside.

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna recipe white sauce from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

To make the B├ęchamel Sauce aka White Sauce which is like the best thing ever: Heat 3 cups Whole Milk until hot, but not boiling, and set aside.

Melt 2 tablespoons Butter, and 1 tablespoon Olive Oil. Sprinkle 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour over the top, and whisk until well combined. Cook flour mixture for 1-2 minutes, until flour starts to bubble, and just barely color.

Slowly drizzle in hot milk while whisking. Cook until sauce is thickened to the consistency of cheese sauce.

Stir in 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg, Ground Pepper To Taste, and a pinch of salt. Mix until well combined, and set aside.

Spread 2 cups Meatless Spaghetti Sauce in the bottom of a 9"x13" Deep Dish Pan.

I just left the meat out of my Spaghetti Sauce this time, but Artichoke Mushroom Tomato Sauce is also delicious for this.

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna Recipe cover sauce with noodles from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Cover with 3 Sheets No Boil Lasagna Noodles or if you're really feeling fancy you could make Homemade Lasagna Noodles.

I really prefer the no boil noodles over traditional dried lasagna noodles. They seem to be the closest resemblance to homemade noodles when you don't have the time, and also require less work. Double win in my book.
