Expert Tips

Roasting vegetables takes some time, but the richly flavored results are definitely worth it. If you want to get a jump start, roast vegetables up to 8 hours in advance and refrigerate.

Topping off each serving of lasagna with a spoonful or two of warmed spaghetti sauce adds the finishing touch to this dish. Dress it up even more with a sprinkle of shredded Parmesan and fresh basil garnishing each plate.
