"A really delicious vegetarian lasagne - a recipe I've honed from all kinds of different sources, and lots of tinkering. Great for a Sunday night meal. All it needs is a simple side salad and maybe some garlic bread. If you can't get fresh lasagne sheets, dried ones which have been boiled for a few minutes are fine, but you really can't beat fresh pasta. Also, I use homemade pasta sauce (I make it while the vegies are cooking), but you can use store bought. Feel free to substitute whatever vegetables are in season - it's a very flexible recipe"

"I made this for a family dinner and it was a huge hit! My non-vegetarian guests said it blew the meat lasagna out of the water. It worked wonderfully with white sauce. I can't wait to try it with the tomato next!"
"I'm a vegetarian but my husband isn't - I made this for the first time for Sunday dinner"

"I didn't bother roasting any vegetables & just made our regular pasta sauce with my own measurements (tons) of veggies included. There's no need to boil the lasagne sheets, as I used instant & they cook while in the oven. The spinach & ricotta mix was really yum & I imagine it would be great mixed with the pasta sauce & layered in the lasagne, if rushed for time. Thanks for posting, chef#. UPDATE: Matt has his way of making lasagne & using this spinach & ricotta mix has become my way of making lasagne. I'm yet to roast any veggies to include in this dish, so I'm holding out for that 5th star :) Hey, any left-over mix is great on crackers, too! :)"
"Fantastic recipe! The roast vegies have a great flavour, and the spinach mixture is so creamy and tasty. Will make again, might even try using bechamel on the bottom and adding the pasta sauce to the veggies for a change."
"One of the best vegetarian lasagne recipes I've ever found.... was a hit at home and very easy to do!"
"Bursting with great roasted flavor! I made this and ate it for 5 nights in a row with my husband. Every night he said he could eat it every night for a month. I used canned spinach because that's what I had on hand."
"THis is quite nice. I love the addition of all the vegi's. I added an egg to the cheese mixture to help hold it together. I think I might prefer it with a white sauce rather than the red but otherwise it has a very nice flavor. Thanks for the great recipe!"
"Delicious, delicious, delicious. I used everything as called for except I used mozarella cheese instead of cheddar as that is what I had and used penne like you would make Ziti. Yummm! Next time I would roast a few more veggies as I love them. The flavor of this is wonderful and it is so healthy. I wondered about the feta cheese in lasagne but it blended so well with the rest of it. I probably will make this more than the meat lasagne in the future. Thanks for posting this. I loved it."
"Fabulous! I real gem of a recipe and one that I know my parents, who are vegetarian, will enjoy! I have tried this for my lunch, they are due in from the UK in 2 hours.........I am ready and waiting! I made one slight change, I added my spinach to the roast vegetables after they had finished roasting and then topped my lasagne with the ricotta and feta mixture. A great recipe for Lasagne that is FULL ON for flavour and texture - I am delighted to have found this recipe, thanks! Made for 5 A Day in the Photo's Forum, merci encore. FT:-)"
"great recipe, easily prepared ahead of time so no slaving in the kitchen when you have friends around !! Really tasty !!! I also added a teaspoon of tahini paste to my tomato sauce, lovely jubly !! The whole thing was delicious."
