Classic lasagne gets a flavourful new twist with roasted red peppers, along with smoked paprika complimenting the eggplant. Pair with a Spanish or Italian red wine for fuss-free entertaining.

1

Red Pepper Tomato Sauce: In food processor, purée red peppers with 1/2 cup (125 mL) warm water; add tomato sauce and purée until smooth.

Season veal with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; sauté veal for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned. Strain to remove fat; return veal to skillet. Add smoked paprika and tomato mixture; cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

3

Lasagne: Cut eggplants into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick rounds. Brush both sides with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on baking sheet; broil for 3 or 4 minutes per side or until browned.

Spread with 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) of sauce; place half of the eggplant slices over top. Sprinkle with one-third of the cheese; repeat layers once. Top with remaining noodles, sauce and cheese.
