For the bechamel sauce:
- 6 tbsp – Butter
- ¼ tsp – Pepper
- ¼ tsp – Nutmeg
- 85 g – All-purpose flour
- 720 ml – Warm milk
- 60 g – Parmesan cheese
- ¼ tsp – Salt
For vegetable mixture
- 2-3 tbsp – Olive oil
- 1 – Onion, chopped
- 140 g – Mushrooms, chopped
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- Fresh basil leaves
- 3 – Chopped garlic cloves
- 1 – Diced carrot
- 2 – Chopped zucchini
- 140 g – Spinach
- 1 tsp – oregano
- 1000 g – Tomato sauce (can be store-bought or homemade)
- Lasagna noodles
- 90 g – Each mozzarella and parmesan cheese
*Heat up a flat pan and add 5-6 tablespoons of olive oil. Fry the chopped onion and garlic cloves until they turn slightly golden brown and then add chopped zucchini and carrot. Cook until tender.
*Then, as per the measurements, add chopped mushrooms and spinach and cook nicely. Finally, add the tomato sauce. Stir nicely and add salt, pepper, and oregano as per your taste, along with basil leaves. Remove the pan from heat.
*Heat up a fresh pan and add 6 tablespoons of butter. Once it has melted, add the flour and whisk until you have a smooth paste. To this, add 3 cups of milk and keep whisking. Add salt, pepper, and nutmeg and parmesan cheese and mix until all combine well and the cheese melts.
*Now take the chopped vegetables and spread a thin layer in a rectangle shape on the pan. Then add the lasagna sheets and again spread the vegetable mixture. Do it until you have as many layers as you’d like. Also, don’t forget to also add a thin layer of bechamel sauce and sprinkle mozzarella cheese on it. Finally, bake at 180-degree celsius for 40 minutes.
*Allow it to cool down and then serve it by cutting little square pieces. Enjoy!
