luckily I can type with my mouth full b/c I couldn't wait to share this recipe. Basically I am a lasagna fanatic and would eat it everyday if I could. This no-bake lasagna is pretty much a recipe for an explosion of awesomeness in your mouth. Double bonus: I used produce from my deck garden. Mmm. It's too bad you can't have some of this, although it might be hard to get me to share anyway. ;)
*An Update* Sadly, this recipe does not reheat well. I would suggest halving it if you're making it for 1-2 people and saving the rest of the ingredients for another day or dish.
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 3 tbs grated Parmesan cheese
- 3 tbs + 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- coarse salt and ground pepper
- 8 lasagna noodles
- 1 small garlic clove, minced + fresh torn basil
- 2 pints grape tomatoes
- 2 zucchini (about 1 lb)
Break your lasagna noodles in half & place in a large pot of boiling water. Cook according to the package's directions.
Halve your grape tomatoes (I threw in some quartered Romas b/c I didn't have enough ripe grape tomatoes.) Thinly slice your zucchini.
In a large skillet, heat 2 tbs oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook until slightly broken down, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
Add 1 tbs oil and zucchini to the skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook until zucchini are tender, about 5 minutes.
Assemble your tasty dinner. Layer the tomatoes and zucchini on noodles. Drop spoonfuls of the ricotta mixture and throw in some freshly torn basil. Repeat.
