Roasted Red Pepper Lasagna | Full of flavour and incredibly easy to make. This is a fun twist on lasagna.

Okay so I admit it. I am completely addicted to roasted red peppers. If loving them is wrong I don’t want to be right.

I keep jars of them in my pantry all the time. You can make so many things with roasted red peppers. I’m a sucker for roasted red pepper pasta and experimenting with tons of variations of it. I make it so many different ways, I probably never make it the same way twice. It’s an endless search for the very best roasted red pepper pasta. This one definitely tops the list.

When Sunday Supper announced they were hosting a Meatless Meal theme I knew I wanted to make a meatless lasagna. I wanted it to still be hearty though, so I decided I would use chunky red pepper pesto as the base. It turned out beautifully. Not only is this a pretty lasagna, but the taste is out of this world. This one is going to get into regular rotation here. It’s spectacular!

Full of flavour and incredibly easy to make. This is a fun twist on lasagna.
Serves: One 9 x 13 Pan of Lasagna
Ingredients
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 large shallots, diced
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 jars (370 ml) of roasted red peppers
  • 1 cup of vegetable broth
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 6 cups of mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Lasagne noodles (500 g), cooked
Instructions
Prep:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Spray a lasagna pan or casserole dish (9 x 13) with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Shred your cheese.
  4. Bring a stock pot of water to a boil, salt the water. Once it boils add the pasta, and cook for 1 minute less than the package instructs. I cooked mine for 7 minutes. Drain but do NOT rinse. Time this step properly with the sauce below. I suggest tossing the noodles in the water as the sauce thickens at the end.
For the sauce:
  1. While the water is heating up you can start your sauce.
  2. In a large skillet drizzle the olive oil. Turn the heat to a medium low. Once the oil glistens add the onions, shallots and a dash of salt. Cook them for about 15 minutes, they should be just starting to brown. Add the roasted red peppers, cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Toss the mixture into a food processor and let it whir until the vegetables become combined but still slightly chunky. Remove and pop that mixture back in the skillet.
  4. Turn the skillet on a medium heat, let it start to heat up then add the broth. Cook that for about 5 minutes, then add the heavy cream. Stir over medium heat until it thickens, this should take about 5 to 10 minutes. Toss in the dried parsley. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
Assembling the Lasagna:
  1. Lay two layers of noodles on the bottom. (some people do one but we like ours with more noodles and cheese, and less sauce).
  2. Spread a layer of sauce over top.
  3. Toss some cheese over top.
  4. Continue to layer this way until you reach the top of the casserole dish or run out of ingredients.
  5. I always use more cheese on top than inside. About double in fact.
  6. Pop the lasagna in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, depending how you like your cheese. We like ours browned to perfection so I went a full 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and slice.
  8. Serve with a big old roasted red pepper loving smile!
Notes
Recipe inspired by The Pioneer Woman's Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

You can adjust the noodles, the sauce and the cheese depending on how you like your lasagna. We like ours with lots of noodles and cheese, but lighter on the sauce. If you are someone who likes their lasagna heavy on the sauce I suggest doubling the ingredients for more sauce to layer over top.

Please keep in mind that this recipe is meatless but not vegetarian or vegan. To make it either make sure to use cheese that meets your diet's requirement. There are tons of vegan cheeses out there, just choose carefully if you are going for the melty cheese effect of lasagna. Some melt better than others.

    You may be crazy about roasted red peppers—I do like them of course—but I am crazy about lasagna. This is a variation of lasagna that is not in my recipe folder. I like it. No I love it. Good enticing picture with the cheese dripping. Roped me in.

    This lasagna is so comforting! Just look at the cheese. It’s oozing cheesiness. And the red peppers surely brought out a one-of-a-kind flavor! Very amazing!
