  1. Cut each pepper into quarters; remove seeds. Place peppers, cut side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 20-25 minutes or until skin is blistered and blackened. Immediately place peppers in a bowl; cover and let stand for 15-20 minutes. Peel off and discard skin. Cut peppers into 1/4-in. strips.
  2. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions; drain. In a saucepan, cook red peppers and garlic in oil for 1 minute; add the tomatoes, parsley, sugar, basil and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. In a saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt and nutmeg until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Spread 1 cup pepper sauce in a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Top with three noodles, 1-1/2 cups pepper sauce, 1 cup white sauce and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles, white sauce and pepper sauce. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.

This was super good, I was just hoping for it to taste a lot more like roasted red pepper. Basically, I feel like you could just make a plain tomato sauce lasanga and it would be just as good. I...

I make this recipe pretty often. It is a hearty vegetarian dish and you won't miss the meat at all! I follow the directions except adding a few more cloves of garlic as we love garlic. I use who...

Grown ups love it - kids didn't like. The only complaint my husband had was that the cheese wasn't very flavorful, so next time I will probably use a variety of cheese rather than just the parm...

First, I have to agree w/ h82ck: I could have used more pepper sauce when it came time to construct the layers. For someone who is *trying* to become a cook (me), this recipe is a little intimi...

This was absolutely delicious but I did change some things. I simmered a 1/4 c red onion with the pepper mixture, used fresh basil, ommitted the white sauce completely, and used a parm, provolon...

Absolutely incredible. This can be made a few days in advance and baked prior to serving (add an extra 5-10 minutes cooking time). You will not be disappointed! :)

This recipe is delicious! I have made it a few times for friends and family, and it was a huge hit. The meatiness of the roasted peppers is just enough to satisfy the meat eaters - everyone comm...

Excellent! This is actually one of the first recipes that I ever used, and it was one of the first dishes I ever cooked. I now LOVE cooking and still love to make this dish. It is a bit time con...

I used two large jars of roasted red peppers instead of roasting my own. I also added two containers of raw sliced mushrooms as I was putting together the layers. This helped the lasagna from c...
