Spaghetti Asparagus Lasagne
Four Seasons Olympic Hotel, Seattle, Washington

Makes 6 to 8 servings

  1 tablespoon butter
  2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  1 tablespoon minced garlic
  1 cup finely chopped onions
  1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  4 medium tomatoes, peeled and roughly chopped, plus 2 thinly sliced
  1/2 cup water
  Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  2 pounds asparagus, trimmed and blanched
  12 ounces spaghetti, precooked and drained
  2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  1/2 cup ricotta cheese

 1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Butter a lasagne dish.

 2. In a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil until hot.
 Add the garlic and onions and sauté until the onions are translucent,
 about 5 minutes.

 3. Stir in the basil, chopped tomatoes, and water and bring to a boil. Add
 salt and pepper, remove from the heat, and set aside.

 4. Arrange half of the asparagus in an even layer over the bottom of the
 prepared lasagne dish. Top with a layer of half of the sliced tomatoes,
 then a layer of half of the spaghetti and a layer of half the
 garlic/onion/tomato sauce. Evenly sprinkle half of the mozzarella over the
 tomato sauce and dot with half of the ricotta. Repeat layering, using all
 of the remaining ingredients.

 5. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until the top of the lasagne is
