You guys, I’m surrounded.

This is serious.

Last night I was sitting at my computer, so casually, when there was some crazy play in the World Series gameย that apparently called for screaming, swearing, and jumping jacks.

From all angles.

Not only was the.boy “reacting” in my ear (never mind the fact that when I want him to do some sort of cardiovascular exercise, he pretends he’s hard of hearing), but the walls and floor basically started shaking all around me because apparently everyone with a Y chromosome in my building felt similarly.

Also, apparently everyone in my building has a Y chromosome. From the sound of it.

I’m probably going to have to move out during the Superbowl.

I mean, there’s no just no other way.

On a totally unrelated note, if anyone is looking for a roommate the weekend of February 1st, I don’t snore, I’m moderately neat, and I make a mean lasagna.

Hint hint.

I present this ratatouille lasagna as Exhibit A.

Filled with sweet roasted late summer/mid-fall vegetables, layers of ricotta, and a solid dose of fresh mozzarella, it is at once comforting but also fresh and light, unlike many pasta dishes of it’s kind. To save time so that you canย make this on a weeknight, you could roast the veggies and set up the layers ahead of time, throwing it in the oven when you’re ready to cookย for about 30 minutes.

Plus five minutes to let it cool before you dig in so you don’t end up with a messy cheese-everywhere ooey gooey life situation.

Although, those are the best kind.

  2. Yes, yes!! Come here for the Superbowl! Instead of watching football we’ll make tons of yummy foods and then spend of the rest of the time on the treadmill, lol!

    Gorgeous lasagna, lady!!

  3. Love ratatouille – and in lasagna form? Even better!

  4. Oh my gosh, ratatouille is one of my favorites! I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it even more in the form of a cheesy lasagna. This is genius Joanne!

  5. oh my gawd. . you are hilarious. . love this post! I think I know what play you are talking about. . and hey, I wouldn’t expect anything less for the World Series. Dude, I love ratatouille . . that last shot where we can see all the vegetable goodness on top of the POUND of ricotta. Freaking glorious. I love this so much!

  6. Sues says:

    Mmm I LOVE that this is not a traditional lasagna and is packed with delicious veggies! Also, great for work lunch leftovers!

  7. This looks great! There’s plenty of space here if you want a UK vacation!

  8. P says:

    Um, you should totally come to my apartment the weekend of the Superbowl and make this. We could eat this lasagna, and then do non-Superbowl stuff together!

  9. this sounds so good! I’m only interested in the superbowl for the snacks.

  10. So. I don’t even know who’s playing in the World Series. I go to maybe 1 or 2 Tiger’s games a year, but mostly because it’s conveniently located near my favorite Greek restaurant and Greek bakery. I’m super fortunate that Josh doesn’t sport either. Feel free to bring this lasagna over to our sport-free zone!

  11. I always love lasanga — but this roasted ratatouille version … it’s blowing my mind!! YUUMM

  12. SallyBR says:

    I despise baseball, but love American football. I hope you can forgive me…

    ๐Ÿ™‚

    now, the lasagna you came up with is definitely a winner!

  13. This is my type of lasagna. So many delicious vegetables, put together in such happy harmony! Honestly, I’d take you in, if only I wasn’t quite a (very very) long way away.

  14. This Ratatouille Lasagna looks so good. What a great idea! I love roasting veggies especially eggplant. This dish looks like a winner!

  15. I just saw the prettiest eggplants at the farmers’ market yesterday. This would be a perfect use for them! Love the mix of layers of cheese and all those veggies.

  16. Julia says:

    I live right near a sports bar, so you can imagine I’ve been feeling your pain, ha! Cheers/yelling/cursing galore! This lasagna looks sooooo healthy and delicious! I love how fresh it is and the ratatouille spin is so brilliant!

  17. Two Italian classic in one…simply irresistible!

  18. cheri says:

    So clever to roast the veggies first, love this!

  19. haha, I’ve never dated a guy that was into football…but I would just for the excuse to make football food. I love everything about it, and have no excuse to make it! Please move into my house whenever the superbowl is happening and make me this. I’m dying for all those vegetables!!

  20. Zainab says:

    Lol! I’ll take you with a pan of this lasagna!

  21. What a great idea for a lasagna! Love all the veggies!

  22. The sports outbursts are a real issue, I am so with you!! I love ratatouille – what a delicious idea to put it in lasagna!

  23. Girl, that overhead shot with the cheese stringing over those sweet roasted veggies??? It made me so hungry! My house is always open if you need to escape the madness. If you bring lasagna, I’ll make dessert. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Love the marriage of ratatouille and lasagna – it seems you have marriage on your mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’d love to offer you a room at our place, but I’m the one who screams and jumps up and down for sports in our house. (I think I scare my husband sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  25. Pam says:

    You’re welcome to stay at my house but it would be a long commute to work! The lasagna looks perfect. I love roasting my veggies for my veggie lasagna too.

  26. OMG I LOOOOVE this spin on lasagna! Soooo many veggies,so much healthier!

  27. Kate says:

    Another genius duh move. Taking a layered dish and lasagna-fying it. It really lends itself to it! You are so smart!

  28. Eileen says:

    Oh, sports. My local coffeeshop is COVERED with Giants paraphernalia this morning, and my reaction was “oh, so that’s what Twitter was talking about last night!” Needless to say, I pick lasagna over team sports every time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Natalie says:

    B’s bday is Feb 2, you can come join the celebration and escape the SuperBowl ๐Ÿ˜‰

    love ratatouille and have made several variations, but never lasagna…SO SMART!

  30. Trisha says:

    My boy was watching the World Series last night too. He’s still depressed that the royal’s lost. I bet I could cheer him up with some of this lasagna though. Gorgeous!

  31. The husband may have recently asked, “Isn’t that a mouse?” when I suggested making ratatouille for Thanksgiving dinner. *whompwhomp* This sounds really really good though, so I bet he’d be glad to know no mice were harmed in the making of this post.

  32. Mmmm – love all those vegs and they are just starting to come into season here – look forward to making this – thanks Joanne,

  33. Beth says:

    Ha! If you don’t mind the trip to Toronto, you’re welcome here. Especially if you make a yummy lasagna like this!

  34. Susan says:

    What a great idea to use ratatouille for lasagna! I’d let you move in her for the Superbowl but the commute would be a little rough.

  35. OMG Joanne, you didn’t! Wanna move in with me? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Munich is a great city hahah!
    Ratatouille is one of my favourites… and lasagna… hm… I guess it is on mostly anyone’s favourites, can’t be otherwise. I’ve been thinking about roasted pasta with ricotta and you just hit the nail on the head – this is it!
    Have a great weekend and wish you luck for the games x)

  36. Sarah says:

    I know how you feel about the world series yesterday – my building had a similar reaction!

    This lasagna looks beautiful and packed with Fall. I’m in the same boat when it comes to sporting events. The superbowl will be a rough time. You bring the lasagna, I’ll bring vegan cake, and we can feast while our apartments shake from sports frenzy.

  37. Kathryn says:

    This lasagna sounds awesome! I love all of these flavour and I love how you’ve lightened this up.

  38. I love this ratatouilli lasagna, sounds yummy! I have a hubby that is the same when it comes to sports.

  39. What a perfectly excellent idea Joanne. Rat Lazagne. hope you find a way to get away from the y’s

  40. Danguole says:

    I want to move into this “what’s the Super Bowl anyway?” house! I’ll bring the wine. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  41. bellini says:

    Bring on the veggies Joanne with their comfort food swagger.

  42. OMG I made something like this a few weeks ago and haven’t had a chance to post it yet
    yours is amazing !

  43. This is right up there on the list of ultimate comfort food that I want.

  44. Johanna GGG says:

    wow that sounds so good – and that mozzerella cheese on top is just so beautiful – I want some – you are welcome to come to our place with lasagna but it will probably be about 40 C with a crazy kid keeping you up so somehow it just feels like out of the frying pan and into the fire ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. What a fun spin on 2 classics. Yum! And you’re always welcome to come play with me on Superbowl Sunday again ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. Kelly says:

    This looks incredible! I love ratatouille and this lasagna! I would gladly take you in but I think my 3 year old and baby would be louder than any superbowl party haha ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. what a delightful lasagna! so many good things in there!!
