Roasted Red Pepper Lasagna

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Katha

Originally got this from Taste of Home Light & Tasty. Made a few changes as we love cheese. Made this for my dad's 70th birthday--everyone loved it. I hope you do too.

This was delicious. However, I'm giving it 4 stars only because I felt the 9X13 dish was too large for this lasagne. I didn't seem to have enough of the pepper sauce to make more than two layers (and that too, barely). Maybe I did something wrong, but my sauce reduced quite a bit when it was cooking. I made no changes to the recipe except for adding fresh parsley and omitting the dried basil because I didn't have any. ALso - I used just 1 cup of parmesan. Loved the flavour of this lasagne and how creamy it was. Will make again. Thanks for the recipe Katha.
