Carrot Pesto Bake
The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook. I make my first dish from the cookbook, and while it wasn't a big hit, I think it has potential. Basically it was a lasagna, where the sauce is a white sauce with cheddar cheese, shredded carrots, and pesto. The recipe didn't call for any salt -- which was a mistake. Also, I would have liked the carrots to be cooked before baking in the pasta -- so they were softer. I think you could substitute other veggies or a mix of veggies in place of the carrots -- broccoli, peas, or spinach, maybe. I think a little hot sauce would be good, too. If I make this again, it will be a little modified.
