Lasagna is one of the tastiest dishes out there. Potatoes and Zucchini make the world go ’round. Together, they create a recipe for satisfaction! Chef Ale has shared her delicious Potato & Zucchini Lasagna recipe, and once you try it, you’ll crave it every single day! Get the recipe below:

Ingredients 

  • 1 package (12 oz) fresh lasagna sheets
  • 3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 cup water, warm
  • 2 cups whole milk, warm
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated

Directions

1. Preheat oven at 350 F degrees.

2. Wash, dry and cut the zucchini into thin rounds. Peel, wash, dry and cut  the potatoes into thin rounds.

3. In a large skillet, brown the garlic with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Remove the garlic and add zucchini and potatoes. Sauté for a couple of minutes, then add 1 cup of warm water, salt and pepper to taste and cook at medium heat until tender.

4. In the meantime, prepare the béchamel sauce by melting the butter in a medium sauce pan over low heat. Remove the butter from heat then add the flour and stir until smooth. Slowly pour in the warm milk, whisking continuously. Return the mixture over medium heat, add nutmeg and cook until just thick. Set aside.

5. Boil the lasagna sheets on a large skillet of salted boiling water for a couple of minutes, then remove and lay on a kitchen towel to dry.

6. To assemble the Lasagna, grease the bottom of a rectangular baking dish with a knob of butter, then spread over a couple of tablespoons of béchamel sauce. Place the first layer of lasagna sheets then some zucchini and potatoes, spread over some béchamel sauce and sprinkle with Parmigiano Reggiano.

7. Repeat (lasagna sheets, béchamel sauce, zucchini and potatoes, Parmigiano Reggiano) for 3 more times or until all the ingredients are gone. (I usually prepare my lasagna with no more than 4 layers).

8. Cook for 35 minutes.

9. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
