Simple Homemade Vegetarian Lasagna

Ingredients

Olive oil 3 Tablespoon
Onion 1 Medium , finely diced
Garlic 5 Clove (25 gm) , thinly sliced
Crushed red chilies 1 Teaspoon
Cracked black pepper 1 Teaspoon (Freshly)
Thyme leaves 1/2 Teaspoon
Fresh tomatoes 2
Canned tomatoes 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Crushed canned tomatoes 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Red wine 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Basil leaves 20 (1 Bunch)

Directions

MAKING

1. Place a deep pot (so that the sides catch any splattering of tomatoes) over medium heat and add olive oil.

Add onions, garlic and crushed chilies to the oil and sauté for 3 minutes

2. Add black pepper and thyme and sauté for another minute.

3. Add canned tomatoes (diced, if you want a less chunky tomato sauce), fresh tomatoes and crushed tomatoes

4. Turn heat to medium low, cover and let cook for at least 2 hours (letting it go for 3 wouldn't kill you), checking the sauce every half hour and stirring so it cooks through evenly

5. Uncover, add salt, wine and torn basil leaves. Let cook for another 10-15 minutes.

6. Once you've got a great sauce you can add any ingredients you like to your lasagna: Ricotta cheese, Parmesan, Sweet Peppers, Zucchini, Mushrooms, etc.

7. Layer in a casserole and bake.

SERVING

6. Serve the Lasagna with a salad on the side.
