This month I got assigned to Red, White and Blueberries - Melissa, the host brings a TEXAS Twist to her dishes, so I had lots of deliciousness to choose from :)
But there was one dish I couldn't forget, after looking through her whole blog - her Easy Overnight Vegetarian Lasagna!
Why I chose this dish?! Well, first of all I've never had a vegetarian Lasagna and hers sounded so easy and just perfect for when you know you won't have time to cook the next day. Throwing everything together the night before sounded just perfect to me, so I wanted to give this one a shot!
Let's first have a look at the recipe, before I tell you more about how easy it really was and talk a little about the taste.
What you need
see note below for the changes I have made to the original recipe*
1 package lasagne noodle plates (about 10-12 plates)
1 jar spaghetti sauce (28oz.)
1 container ricotta cheese, skim (16 oz.)
3 cups shredded cheese, fat reduced
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons oregano
1/2 cup hot water
*original recipe calls for whole wheat lasagna plates, mozzarella cheese and rosemary, see the original recipe here
How you make it
The Recipe and Taste: I love it when a recipe works exactly the way as describes as it was the case with this one! No changes needed. I only did my changes, because I had those ingredients at home! The result you get from this recipe is a perfectly cooked lasagna, that also offers lots of variation possibilities. Adding your favorite veggies to it, going crazy on the cheese by maybe adding some feta cheese or even blue cheese or swirling a little BBQ sauce into the spaghetti sauce ... I can imagine this all as very delicious. What made me especially happy is, that I can make it whenever I've got time and put it into the oven whenever I want it! It's like a healthy version of a store bought freezer lasagna. This is not the last time me and my hubby will enjoy this wonderful dish - Simply a keeper recipe!
Big compliments to Melissa - she has created something wonderful here. Make sure to visit her and have a look at all the delicious things she makes (I saw her newest post is a sweet treat you don't want to miss)!
