Lasaña de zapallitos italianos
(vegetariana)














Tengo hijos mellizos de 20 años y curiosamente la niña  es vegatariana y el otro adora las carnes:)
Asi que los que me conocen hace tiempo que siempre posteo recetas vegatarianas aunque voy alternando por supuesto!

Esta receta de lasaña de zapallitos la encontré y me encantó porque es totalmente vegatariana.
Otras llevan carne aunque sea de zapallitos.
Esta queda preciosa y muy rica.

Ingredientes
(4 porciones) 3 zapallitos medianos(o calabacines)
1/2 cabolla picada
400 gramos tomate triturado
o un tarro de tomates al jugo
2 cucharaditas de maicena
1 taza de leche
1 taza queso parmesano rallado 
3 cucharadas de aceite para el sofrito de cebolla y tomate
sal
orégano

Preparación

Con un cuchillo afilado o una mandolina  cortar l+aminas verticales del zapallito o calabacin que serán las hojas de la lasaña.
Reservar.
En un sarten grande poner el aceite a calentar y sofreir a fuego medio la cabolla ya picada. Añadir el tomate natural picado o un tarro de tomates tambien triturados.
(para que se pueda hacer la receta en verano o en invierno)
Mientras se va haciendo la salsa calentar el horno a 180°c. No importa que el sofrito se haya cocinado totalmente, se terminará de hacer en el horno.
Preparar una fuente de horno pyrex u otra y sobre ella ir colocando láminas de zapallito (como si fuera hojas de masa) y sobrte esta salsa de tomate y despues queso rallado. Repetir todo el proceso, zapallitos, salsa y queso rallado. Finalmente con la salsa bechamel que se hará esparcir sobre la lasaña y espolvorear queso . 

Salsa bechamel
En una ollita poner la leche y la maicena , revolviendo bien poner a fuego suave hasta que espese será una bechamel ligera. Añadior sal y una pizca de nuez moscada.
Con esta salsa cubrir la lasaña.
Llevar a horno precalentado (180°c) por unos 35 minutos o hasta que esté dorado y burbujeante.
Retirar del horno.
Esperar unos 5 minutos antes de servir. 
Servir con ensalada.

  29. I'm not vegetarian, but a lot of the times, vegetarian recipes sound so much more interesting- probably because they have so much creativity. I absolutely love zucchinis so I'm sure I'd love this lasagne!
