Vegetarian Feta-Zucchini Lasagna

Last Saturday we made vegetarian Feta-Zucchini Lasagna for the first time ever and it was so good! Here’s the recipe:

Feta-Zucchini Lasagna

Lasagna sheets
1 package (about 175 grams) of feta or salad cheese
About 1 cup grated cheese
2 medium or one big (about 500 grams) zucchinis
a ball (125 g) of mozzarella

Tomato Sauce:
1 1/2 onions or 1 big onion
2 medium carrots
2 tablespoons oil
1 can (370 grams) herb-flavoured crushed tomatoes
1 dl (about half a cup) water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1,5 teaspoon herbes de provence

Béchamel or White Sauce:
50 grams margarine or butter
about 1 dl (less than a half a cup) plain flour
8-10 dl (4 cups) milk
pinch of salt
pinch of white pepper
pinch of nutmeg

1. Take a rectangle shape casserole or lasagna dish. Preheat oven to about 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2. Peel and chop the onions. Peel and grate the carrots. Cut the zucchini in half and chop it in a half centimetre pieces.
3. In a pan, heat the oil and sauté the zucchinis lightly.
4. Make the tomato sauce. In a pan, heat the oil and sauté the onions and the grated carrots. Pour in the crushed tomatoes and water in a pan. Add salt, ground black pepper and spices. Let simmer for about 5-10 minutes or until the white sauce is ready.
5. Make the white sauce. Melt the butter in a pan and add the flour. Add half of the milk stirring constantly. When the sauce is starting to thicken, add the rest of the milk stirring the sauce. Let the sauce come to a boil and then turn the heat lower. Add salt, white pepper and nutmeg.
6. Crumble the feta cheese cubes with a fork into a crumble.
7. Spread white sauce and then tomato sauce on the bottom of the lasagna dish and then a line of lasagna sheets. Then first assemble a layer of zucchinis, then crumbled feta, then tomato sauce and then white sauce. Continue this with the next few layers. On the last layer tear mozzarella on top of everything and put on the last layer of lasagna sheets and cover it with white sauce.
8. Put the lasagna in the oven for 30 minutes. Then cover it with grated cheese and put it in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the surface is golden brown.
9. Let the lasagna to withdraw for a while before serving. Enjoy!
