Alfredo Lasagna Primavera

I tried a new variation on lasagna today: Alfredo Lasagna Primavera.  The verdict?  Delicious!!  I already shared my classic lasagna recipe with you, along with some variations.  However, this recipe is so different that I decided it deserves its own post.  Here’s what I did.
 
 
Ingredients:
  • 9-12 lasagna noodles, cooked
  • 1 batch of Alfredo sauce (recipe follows)
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend (mozzarella, provolone, etc.)
  • 3 small zucchinis, sliced into rounds
  • ½ an onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder

Directions:

  1. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions; set aside. 
  2. Make Alfredo sauce (recipe follows); set aside.
  3. Sautee onion, bell pepper and zucchini in a small amount of olive oil, until just tender; remove from heat and add tomatoes.
  4. Spread a thin layer of olive oil in the bottom of a 9x13” glass baking dish.
  5. Layer the lasagna as follows: 3-4 lasagna noodles, thin layer of Alfredo sauce; vegetables; then shredded cheese. Repeat.
  6. After two complete layers, put another layer of lasagna noodles, Alfredo sauce and top with remaining shredded cheese.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

Alfredo Sauce
Ingredients:
1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
¾ cup *real* Parmesan cheese, finely grated
2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. flour

Directions:
Melt butter in a small sauce pan.  Whisk in flour until well combined.  Add heavy whipping cream and heat over medium low until sauce thickens slightly.  Remove from heat, and add cheese very SLOWLY, stirring constantly.  If you like, you can add some spices.  For this recipe, I added black pepper, red pepper and garlic.

**Note: you can also use this sauce recipe for fettuccine Alfredo – just toss with pasta; add in veggies or grilled chicken if you’d like!

In conclusion, I have to admit that I actually like this Alfredo Lasagna better than my regular lasagna.  Tom seems to like both equally, however…so I’m sure they’ll both remain in my dinner rotation!
