I’m so enthusiastic about this recipe as a result of, who doesn’t love lasagna within the center (err… starting) of winter! Growing up, lasagna was my favourite meals. Even although my mother made it fairly darn usually, I used to be at all times excited when lasagna night time got here round. But this model of lasagna is not any odd lasagna as a result of as an alternative of noodles, I used paper-thin sheets of candy potato! It’s what veggie goals are product of.
I hope Santa was good to you final week… in case you discovered a KitchenAid® Artisan® Stand Mixer below your tree, do your self a favor and go get this Vegetable Sheet Cutter Attachment as a present to and from your self. It’s so enjoyable! Just have a look at that lengthy sheet of candy potato!
Since these noodles aren’t noodles, I needed to do some experimenting to determine what works and what doesn’t as a filling. The greatest takeaway is that the filling can’t have an excessive amount of moisture. This means utilizing one layer of marinara sauce on the backside as an alternative of diced canned tomatoes all through. It additionally means making a combination of ricotta and feta cheese (somewhat than simply ricotta), which helps to thicken up the filling. The feta additionally has the additional benefit of including a tangy chunk, which is so scrumptious in distinction to the earthy sage all through the filling.
Also, you may see within the picture above that my candy potato noodles usually are not all the very same measurement… nor did I peel them. Since candy potatoes come in several sizes and styles, you’re not going to get completely rectangle noodles (though in case you get a brief/fats potato, you’ll get actually shut) – simply get artful whereas piecing them collectively nevertheless they match collectively greatest. I used three smaller strips of “noodles” for the primary layer, and wider strips for the center and high layers. No wasted meals scraps right here (any further scraps we did have we gave to the pups who love candy potatoes).
This recipe couldn’t be extra easy – from begin to end, it took me lower than 30 minutes to assemble. The noodles don’t have to be pre-cooked, so all it’s a must to do is combine collectively the filling and layer this up. A heat and comfy dinner (or in our case, lunch, after we took these pictures!) awaits.
What ought to I noodle subsequent? Sweet potato manicotti? Maybe a multi-root vegetable lasagna?
