Gluten Free Vegetable Lasagna
There is really no way around making two main dishes unless all your guests are vegetarian. I propose a simple Italian solution….just as my grandfather Luigi would say, “make some lasagna and fuhgetaboutit!” Over the years I’ve noticed that most of my friends and clients who are vegetarian also like to eat gluten-free, thus the inception of my yumm-o-licious roasted vegetable lasagna. It’s made with layers of extra-thinly sliced potato, eggplant, zucchini, onion, my homemade pesto and goat cheese. Buon Appetito!Print Pin Rate

Although this recipe might sound painstakingly difficult given the “extra thin” sliced vegetables, it’s really über simple if you invest in a mandolin — no, not the musical instrument, it’s a kitchen gadget, people! I have a super mega-cool mandolin that I bought from Williams Sonoma for a zillion dollars (well…$150 really, but it was expensive). Given that I’m always cooking, teaching cooking classes or developing recipes, it was an investment. The good news is you can find a decent mandolin in the kitchen gadget section of your local supermarket for around $10. This tool will slice the potatoes, zucchini, eggplant, and onion in a snap.
