Recipe

Roasted Asparagus Lasagna with Goat Cheese

This lasagna is bursting with caramelized asparagus, lemon and goat cheese. Serve it with a salad and some crusty bread and you have a great spring meal.

Times

  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 35 min

Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lasagna pasta (I like the whole wheat pasta available at most markets)
  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus-stem end trimmed and stalks cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • Zest of 2 lemons

Directions

1.  Preheat broiler to high.

2. Place a large stockpot over high heat and cook lasagna pasta until it is al dente. Drain and toss with olive oil to prevent pasta from sticking.

3. Toss the asparagus pieces with salt and pepper and extra Virgin olive oil. Place on a broiler proof pan and cook until caramelized and lightly browned (about 5-7 minutes). Be sure to turn the asparagus frequently so that it is evenly golden brown. Remove from the broiler and set aside.

4. Place a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Melt the butter and whisk the flour in to milk. Stir the mixture to cook out the raw flour taste (about 1 minute.) Add the milk at once and whisk constantly. The mixture will thicken when the milk reaches a boil. When the mixture reaches a boil, remove from the heat and stir in the goat cheese and lemon zest. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

  1. I think that part of the directions were left off — can you add the rest of the steps. thanks

    • the rest of the recipe must have been cut off!
      sorry!
      place 1 layer of pasta in a lightly greased (with olive oil) casserole. add a layer of the asparagus, lightly cover with sauce. add another layer of pasta, placing the lasagna noodles in the opposite direction (this will keep the whole lasagna from sliding when sliced). top with asparagus and sauce and then one more layer of lasagna (facing in the original direction) and ending with asparagus and sauce.
      bake at 350 until bubbly and lightly browned.
