Veal and Eggplant Lasagne

September 1, 2015 Catelli Gluten Free

Classic lasagne gets a flavourful new twist with roasted red peppers,
along with smoked paprika complimenting the eggplant. Pair with a Spanish or Italian red wine for fuss-free entertaining.


12 Catelli® Oven Ready Gluten Free Lasagne Noodles
2 eggplants (about 2 lb/1 kg)
2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and freshly ground pepper
4 cups (1 L) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped fresh parsley
–Red Pepper Tomato Sauce:
2 roasted red peppers, peeled and chopped
3 cups (750 mL) tomato sauce
1 1/2 lb (750 g) ground veal
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
3/4 tsp (4 mL) smoked paprika

Red Pepper Tomato Sauce: In food processor, purée red peppers with 1/2 cup (125 mL) warm water; add tomato sauce and purée until smooth.

Season veal with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; sauté veal for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned. Strain to remove fat; return veal to skillet. Add smoked paprika and tomato mixture; cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

Lasagne: Cut eggplants into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick rounds. Brush both sides with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on baking sheet; broil for 3 or 4 minutes per side or until browned.

Spread with 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) of sauce; place half of the eggplant slices over top. Sprinkle with one-third of the cheese; repeat layers once. Top with remaining noodles, sauce and cheese.
