Preparation

  1. Thaw vegetables and chop into small pieces. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together egg, ricotta, 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the Parmesan cheese and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Cut polenta into 1/4-inch (0.5 cm) slices. Set aside.
  4. Lightly grease 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23 cm) baking pan with oil. Spread 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) of the pasta sauce onto the bottom. Arrange a layer of polenta over sauce. Spread half of the roasted vegetable mixture over polenta.
  5. In a large bowl, mix together remaining sauce and veggie ground round. Spread half of the veggie sauce over vegetables.
  6. Spread ricotta mixture carefully over vegetables. Sprinkle with 1 cup (250 mL) of the mozzarella. Add another layer of polenta (you may have some leftover).
