Cutting the zucchini lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices makes it easier to layer on top of the noodles. Slow-cooking the onion brings out its natural sweetness and provides a complementary flavor to sharp Gorgonzola cheese.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Melt 2 teaspoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, thyme, salt, and pepper; cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the wine; cook 2 minutes or until wine evaporates. Spoon into a bowl; cool.

Step 3

Melt 1 teaspoon butter in pan over medium-high heat. Add half of the zucchini; cook 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove from pan. Add remaining zucchini; cook 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Set aside.

Step 4

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly with a whisk. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk. Cook 5 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add Gorgonzola and nutmeg; stir until cheese melts.

Step 5

Spread 1/4 cup cheese sauce in the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 4 noodles slightly overlapping over cheese sauce; top with half of onion mixture, half of zucchini, and 1 cup cheese sauce. Repeat layers, ending with noodles. Spread the remaining cheese sauce over noodles. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Cover and bake at 375° for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

This lasgna has the most delicious flavors and has been a go-to recipe for years! I do a few tweaks though that work for me as I've been making it so many times. First we use spinach instead of zucchini, I either saute fresh spinach with garlic or just use thawed frozen spinach. I also caramelize at least 3lbs of onions...it takes forever, so if I can, I complete that step a different day. Finally, I use the no-cook noodles instead of cooking regular noodles and it works just fine. This tastes even better the next day!

This takes some time to put together - but the end result is very good. I'm making it again tonight for the second time!
