Summer Veggie lasagna with tomato confit and Zucchini

Vegetarian lasagna with summer vegetables. I love lasagna, I've said this over and over. But in the summer just can't be done, too hot and the sauce is too heavy. However, if, like me, you don't want to give up your favorite meal, You can reach a compromise: lasagna read, with Grilled Zucchini, tomato confit, a few cubes of mozzarella di bufala campana Dop, lots of Basil and – just to cover – little bechamel. Delicious layers of dough, vegetables and mozzarella that will take the urge for Lasagna without putting on too. And are delicious warm too.

CA’ Vegar It is a wine with hints of red fruits and very fruity on the palate, holding well the flavor and the fattiness of the mozzarella di bufala.
