Hearty Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Hearty Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

A warm winter favourite is revamped with layers of roasted veggies, jarred roasted red peppers and sun-dried tomatoes. Roasting the vegetables before assembling deepens the flavours and produces a firmer lasagna. Use a mandoline to slice the vegetables thinly and evenly. If you're using a knife and end up with thicker slices, simply roast a little longer to achieve the same result.

Ready in 2 hours. Serves 6.
