This is not your ordinary lasagna- a ratatouille sauce is layered with the lasagna noodles and the cheese.A delicious and slightly different take on lasagna- add a side salad and some crusty bread and dinner is served! I usually will add about 1/2 teaspoon oregano and 1 t. basil to the vegetable mixture just because I like those spices in Italian food!
