Preparation

Step 1

In a large saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion begins to soften. Add the pepper, zucchini, and eggplant and cook until the vegetables soften. Stir in the basil and parsley. Add the potatoes and tomatoes, stir well, and season with salt. Cover the pan and let simmer until very soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 14- by 8 1/2- by 2-inch baking pan with olive oil.

Place 2 lasagne sheets in the pan, slightly overlapping them. Spoon about 2 cups of the vegetable mixture over the noodles. Scatter the Fontina cheese over the vegetables. Cover the cheese with 2 more lasagne noodles. Spread another 2 cups of the vegetable mixture on top. Scatter the provolone cheese over, cover with 2 more lasagne sheets, and top with the remaining vegetable mixture. Scatter the mozzarella cheese over the vegetables and top with the remaining 2 lasagna sheets.

Press down on the top sheets with your hands to compact the layers. Spread the tomato sauce over the top. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.

Let the lasagne cool for about 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve immediately.

Note: Cooked lasagne can be frozen for as long as 3 months. Defrost in the refrigerator and reheat in a moderate oven for 20 to 30 minutes.
