  • Thank much much Pamela for responding!

    For the Ricotta, I used Tofutti Milk Free Better Than Ricotta Cheese (From David Mintz’s Private Recipe Collection).

    Thank you for all the rest! much appreciated:)

  • Hi!

    Thank you so much for the recipe! I tried it out…but it did not seem to come out as pretty as yours. I wonder if the roma tomatoes added too much juice to?

    I too, made the tomato sauce…and the taste was out of this world! I wished I could have it with rice. I added orange and yellow bell peppers and mushrooms to the recipe. I used the entire 2 cups of ricotta cheese; it seemed too much though! And since I am not a big cheese person, I think next time I will use half. plus, it mixed up with the roma tomatoes and produced a think puree..Anyway, I do not know what I did wrong, but the taste was still yummy.

    Question, what is the calorie count? and the nutritional facts of this recipe? Please share if you have it.

    • Hi Doreen,

      I’m happy to hear that you liked the lasagna and didn’t see any reports of injury from making it. ;) You could make a bunch of the tomato sauce and freeze it in small containers, or zip top bags, and thaw it out for future use (I do this a lot).

      First off…you didn’t do anything wrong. Ingredients, especially fresh ones, can all be a bit different. Tomatoes can all have different levels of juice in them. The roma’s tend to be meatier and less juicy, which is why I use them, but you may have a type in SA that meatier. I’m guessing that if you used store bought ricotta in this, that the cheese is your culprit for the excess liquid. Next time you make this, line a strainer with a double layer of cheesecloth and drain it for an hour before you use it. This will eliminate most of the excess liquid. In fact, I am adding a note to this recipe based on your experience.

      the calorie count on this recipe is roughly 350 cal/serving (but that excludes the olive oil and Parmesan cheese from the Lasagna part of the recipe). Total fat/serving is 18g. Total carb/serving is 32.55g. Total protein/serving is 19.75g/serving.

    This is great! I just fixed it for yesterdays lunch. I’ve had a run in with my mandoline too also great at grating my finger tips on my box grater. Even though I’m a man I completely agree on your relationship advice. It can go the “other” way also.

    • Hi MountainBrew,

      I’m so glad you liked the vegetable lasagna! :) Ouch, I haven’t done the box grater thing in a while but I have given myself quite the manicure on my zester (what’s a little extra keratin protein in a salad between friends – right?) You are soooo right…that advice does go both ways.

    Making the lasagna this weekend, YUM.

    • Hi Toni,

      Yeah….there’s that too. ;)

      Enjoy the lasagna and watch out for your fingers.

  • I sliced my finger open/off on the dang mandolin ON my birthday last year, slicing apples for a cocktail. After I managed the gushing blood, I drank. Then someone reminded me alcohol thins your blood. Awesome. So I bled a little extra.
    Um, but, your lasagna turned out really good looking!!! I hope your finger is healed now!

  • Ugh… I HATE cutting my fingers – give me a good ole’ burn anyday! Don’t think my PA was as good looking as your dr. and he didn’t offer me glue – my only choice was stitches, a splint AND NO PAINKILLERS!!! Clearly, I went to the wrong ER – but they had free wi fi and free valet parking and virtually no wait so it wasn’t all bad!
    Given what’s in that lasagna, your sacrifice was worth it – and you are SO right about the ricotta!!

    February 27, 2012
    • I agree with you burns over cuts. I had to ask for the pain killers ;) . I needed to have some kind of positive thing come out of the experience. LOL-leave it to the OC to have valet parking at an ER.

  • Oh dear… The whole slicing-off trailer :S Went through that lane a few times and once was with a vase and my ankle… By the way, this episode might b fit for one of your’s “Relationship Advices” lol
    No hottie doc but a cute physiotherapist with cat’s eyes (literally….).

    On a side note, at least the dish they requested was low carbs and no vegetarian ;p

    February 27, 2012
    • Hmmmm…we may need to chat about that experience. I’m always looking for stuff for the Advice section.

      February 27, 2012
  • Oh my goodness, I’m so sorry to hear about your thumb. I’m seriously far too freaked out to ever buy a mandoline. With how much of a clutz I am, and with how frequently I ALREADY cut myself, I think I’m doing myself a favour.

    Also, your relationship advice – – HILARIOUS!!

    And the lasanga – – sooo pretty!!

    February 27, 2012
    • I probably should have thought more like you and NOT gotten a mandoline. But no, I have to feel like I’m better than a stinking razor sharp blade (I’m clearly not). Lesson learned, use the hand guard. :) I’m glad you like the advice. You should definitely try the lasagna…it tastes as good as it looks.

      February 27, 2012
  • That is GORGEOUS! Like the movie!

    February 27, 2012
    • No mouse, just a little thumb. I wonder if they’d make a movie about that. Even an OSHA work place flick.
