My friend, Isabelle gave this to me, it came from one of her cookbooks. It is described as: "An unusual and lighter than average lasagne using a soft French goat cheese. The pasta sheets are not so chewy if boiled briefly first. If you choose no-cook lasagne, then make more sauce to soak into the pasta." We had this at Isabelle's house one night and LOVED it. I wanted to post it here for safe keeping.

Directions

  1. 1. Blanch the pasta sheets in plenty of boiling water for just 2 minutes. Drain and place on a clean dish towel.
  2. 2. Lightly slice thin and lightly salt the eggplant and lay in a colander to drain for 30 minutes. Rinse and pat dry with paper towel.
  3. 3. Lightly fry the leeks in the olive oil for about 5 minutes until softened. Peel the roasted peppers and cut into strips.
  4. 4. Make the sauce: put the flour, butter and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until it has thickened. Add the ground bay leaves, nutmeg and seasoning. Simmer for 2 additional minutes.
  5. 5. In a greased shallow casserole, layer the leeks, pasta, eggplant, goat cheese, peppers, and Pecorino or Parmesan. Trickle the sauce over the layers, ensuring that plenty goes in between.
  6. 6. Finish with a layer of sauce and grated cheese. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until browned on top. Serve immediately.
