Ingredients (6 portions)

  • Eggplant 350g
  • Carrots 120g
  • Onion 75g

  • Strained tomatoes 700g
  • Zucchini 120g

[1 portion = 415 cal]

Tips:

If you don’t have a grill you can bake the veggies in the oven.

Other than provolone, you can add mozzarella and/or Parmesan cheese! I choose provolone because it doesn’t have a strong taste so it doesn’t hide the veggies flavor!

PASTICCIO ALLE VERDURE RECIPE

An idea for your vegetarian friends

I am not a big fan of zucchini and eggplants together…it’s not that I will not eat them. It’s more about preferring other vegetables over them. But a good diet it’s a varied diet so I am trying to find ways to add also these veggies in my dishes! I made this pasticcio exactly for that reason and I am happy to say that it was delicious! Let me know in the comments if you are making it and your opinion! 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven at 320F.
  2. Slice zucchini and eggplants lengthwise and grill until edges are crisp and grill marks are present. 
  3. Cut the onion and the carrots in small pieces. 
  4. Warm up the oil on a pan and add onion and carrots. Let it cook for 1 minute, then, add the tomato sauce, and salt as needed. 
  5. Let it cook at medium-low heat for 10 minutes or until you reach the wanted consistency (it has to be still liquid but not watery).
  6. Spread a small layer of the sauce on a baking dish and start layering.: lasagna noodle, tomato sauce, zucchini or eggplant, and sliced provolone. Keep layering for a total of 3 layers. 
  7. Cover it with aluminum foil and bake for 50 minutes. Take it out from the oven and serve warm. ENJOY!
