  • medium, diced small
  • 1 large eggplant, peeled and diced small
  • 2 large zucchini, diced small
  • 1 pound lasagna noodles, boiled until just tender, and drained

Sauce:

  • 1∕3 cup olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup flour, any flour
  • 4 cups milk, low-fat OK

  • 1 cup basil leaves, packed, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Good pinch nutmeg

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spray with vegetable oil spray. Place all vegetables on the sheet in one layer (do not pile, use 2-sheet pans). Spray again. Roast for 20 minutes, or a little longer, until dark and roasted.

Reduce the temperature to 375°F.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: Heat the oil in a skillet. In a food processor, coarsely grind the onion and garlic and add to the skillet. Sautéuntil translucent. Add the flour and cook just a few seconds until golden. Add the milk in a slow stream, whisking. Stir in all remaining sauce ingredients.

Spread a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom of an 11-by-14-inch pan. Top with a layer of lasagna noodles, overlapping them slightly. Top with a third of the vegetable mixture. Repeat: sauce, noodles, vegetables, sauce, noodles, vegetables. Sprinkle the top with the reserved Parmesan.

Bake covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake another 20 minutes. Do not over-bake, or it will dry. Serve hot.
